Love Island's Molly-Mae Hague has been open about her experiences with trolls, slamming them in the past for body shaming. Now, the 21-year-old has shared a glimpse into her DMs, revealing she feels 'desensitized' to the hate.

Earlier this month, Molly-Mae and boyfriend Tommy Fury headed to Ibiza, where she was the target of vile abuse on social media and in tabloid comments. In response, she retweeted some of said mean things people had said along with a couple of photos of herself, with some wise words: "I would genuinely love to know who writes these comments? Like how can you actually write shit like that and sleep at night? Beyond me." We fully agree, Mols!

Regardless of the fact she looks incredible, no one should have to read mean comments about their appearance.

Which, sadly, is still something the influencer is receiving, after Molly-Mae shared an insight into her DMs yesterday [28 July]. After posting a photo in her gym gear, one person replied, "Oh poor you you spoilt brat there are more important problems in this world, people suffering to a much higher degree. You are so shallow, vacuous and useless to society. Thick materialistic fat cow [sic]."

So, so vile.

Molly shared a screenshot of the message and added comments of her own: "My DMs are honestly so wild you know. I genuinely have become so desensitised to reading this kind of stuff." She added a laughing crying emoji.

The Love Islander previously opened up about her ability to deal with trolls in an interview with OK! magazine. "I’m strong so I can take the nasty comments," she said. "I’m glad it’s happening to me over other people. If I get upset, then Tommy says, ‘If I think you look amazing then why do you care about them?’”

Well we think Molly looks great, and no one should have to receive social media abuse like that.
