She added: ‘I think trolling is a weak man’s game, it brings people down for their own gain and I don’t think the good comes out – it breaks my heart. ”

Abbie, 25, said she was sympathetic after also being bullied after her stint on The Bachelor in 2019.

In an interview with the Daily Telegraph earlier this month, Abbie revealed that she receives abuse and death threats on a daily basis.

“I am trolled every day. It ranges from ‘you are an idiot’ to instructions on how to kill me, to reasons why I should kill myself or death threats, ”she said.

Although Abbie unfortunately admitted that she had gotten used to vitriol, it still affects her sometimes.

“It bothers my head a bit personally. I have weeks where I cannot look at myself in the mirror because I am told that I revolt at every turn, ”she added.

Meanwhile, in an interview with 9Honey in 2019, Jack admitted, “ People are always going to say what they’re going to say. I have treated it before and developed thick skin, and I know there are a lot of people out there who like to hate it.
