Reality star urges social media giants to ID users

-

Nurses and middle-aged women are frequent online trolls, a former Love Island star has told MPS, as she called for social media giants to ID users.

Amy Hart, who appeared in the 2019 series, said she often looked up people leaving abusive comments and found them to be older women with families.

The 29-year-old also told MPS that she had received a death threat from a 13-year-old via social media.

Appearing before the culture committee yesterday, Ms Hart said: “I was getting trolled by nurses and people with children, and I thought ‘Do you go to dinner parties and tell your friends that you’re trolling random 29-year-old girls? Are you proud of it?’”
