Vicky Pattison slammed vile trolls leaving nasty comments on her make-up free selfie.
The former Geordie Shore star, 32, stood up to a bunch of cruel Internet users on Saturday when she was accused of “attention seeking” by sharing an empowering snap on Instagram.
The telly star, who is open and honest about her mental health, posted a realistic selfie as she told her followers to look out for themselves and others as the second lockdown looms over England.
While lots of her fans found the post inspiring, a handful of nasty trolls pulled apart her appearance and branded her a “moose”.
Among their vicious comments, they accused Vicky of “attention seeking” with the harmless post.
However, the reality queen made it clear she won’t stand for negativity and shut down the trolls.
She wrote on her Instagram Story: “So this morning I tried to pop a nice post up on my feed where I looked a bit silly.
“Had pretty crazy hair and ultimately tried to encourage people who follow me, in wake of last night’s disappointing and frustrating news to practice a little kindness, to themselves and each other…”
The star added: “I understand that it’s an incredibly difficult time right now and this is the last thing anyone wanted… as a nation we are scared, angry and completely crestfallen… but let me just clear something up for anyone who follows me…
“No matter how angry you might be that this year hasn’t gone your way, no matter how uncertain or scared about the future you may be, no matter what you are feeling: Social media is NOT and I repeat NOT the place to project your hate, malice or just general bad attitude.”
Vicky warned the trolls: “So if you are planning on coming on to my page: a place of positivity, warmth, honesty and kindness know that if you bring anything other than those things… like these fools.”
The I’m A Celebrity star shared a series of screenshots from cruel social media users who had messaged her about the snap.
One harsh message said: “Get a tan please Vicky!!!! Your looking like Casper @vickypattison get that sorted before lockdown please.”
Responding to the hate, Vicky concluded: “You will be blocked. Perhaps after I send a sassy reply (depending on my mood).
“2020 has been s**t enough without anyone having to deal with this b******s. So level up, grow up, respect everyone is having a tough year and f**king be better. Because this trolling s**t is weak sauce and we’re all above it.”
The superstar looked gorgeous in her make-up free snap, showing off her glowing skin and natural brunette locks.
Vicky is known for sharing the realities and hardship of life on her social media and she is always praised by her loyal fans.
She signed off her post by saying: “Rant OVER. P.s thank you to the lovely majority of people who bring nothing but love and light to my page… you’re THE BEST!!!! (sic).”
