Scarlett Moffatt was "in tears" earlier in the week after receiving cruel comments about her looks online. The TV star had suffered an embarrassing fashion blunder on Sunday's Love Island: Aftersun, which soon led to negative remarks about her appearance. Scarlett has since suggested that she has had enough of social media after she commented on a tweet posted by reality TV star Charlotte Crosby. Charlotte had written: "Big statement BUT… I am so done with Instagram," to which Scarlett replied: "Awww honestly I am done with every aspect of social media."

Another concerned fan told her: "Hope you're okay Scarlett." A third added: "Scarlett, don't let the bullies win – you are so much better than them."

On Sunday after reading negative comments about herself, Scarlett took to Twitter to let her critics know just how bad they had made her feel about herself. "I'm honestly ashamed of some people on here," she wrote. "Hard to pretend I'm ok and be a good role model to others about how it's ok to just be you when the comments from grown adults on here have resulted in me crying my eyes out! I hope you're very proud of yourselves."

Something needs to change with our society!!"
