TOWIE star slammed for offensive tweet about Dan Osborne

Ricky Rayment got himself in some trouble with TOWIE fans today when he made a badly thought-out joke about his co-star Dan Osborne.

Dan has had his fair share of criticism in the media recently, after he was fired from the reality show following allegations he had verbally abused his ex Megan Tomlin, who is the mother of his toddler son Teddy.

The 23-year-old recently became a father for the second time, welcoming a baby girl named Ella with his current girlfriend, Jacqueline Jossa – and Ricky took to Twitter this morning to poke some fun at the father-of-two.

Sharing a picture from The Sun newspaper of a man who had fathered 40 children by 20 women, Ricky wrote, "Haha @DannyO This is gonna be you #superspunk #bantaaaaa"

We're sure Ricky meant it as a joke but many Twitter users have been making their views known to the reality star.

"Bit harsh Ricky," wrote one follower, with another writing, "have some respect for @jacquelineMjos you absolute d*ck of a guy!"

As for Dan, he seems to have ignored Ricky's jibes so far, though he did take to social media today to share a recent picture of baby Ella with the caption, "She looks so much like her beautiful mummy."
