Love Island star Molly-Mae Hague has opened up about the amount of online abuse she receives, revealing that she occasionally replies to trolls, sending them the same response to see their reaction.
The influencer spoke about trolling during an appearance on Patricia Bright's YouTube series If I Could Tell You Just One Thing, explaining that she wants people to know that she sees their hurtful messages.
"Sometimes I'll actually reply to people that send horrifying DMs. I'll just message back and be like, 'What made you wanna send this DM to me?'
"And then they'll probably be like, 'Oh my gosh. Molly-Mae I can't believe you replied. Love you'," she explained, adding, "Like, this really is crazy. Insane to think that these people were actually just trying to get a rise out of you, they're trying to get you to reply by sending you a foul message."
She continued, "It gives me a little kick. I'm like, 'This person will never think I'm probably gonna even see this message, but I have seen it and I want to see how they feel now they know that I've seen the message of them calling me fat."
The star added that trolls' responses "fascinate" her, and that she feels grateful to have such a close support network.
"... Being around Tommy 24/7 is obviously great because those comments... Oh, my goodness. He's so good at dealing with them. Somehow it makes me feel like they just could not matter at all."
