Diversity is merely one issue in a large spectrum of problems perpetuated by ITV2's hit reality show Love Island. 

It speaks volumes that Irish contestant Yewande Biala has already been racially abused by trolls only hours after she was announced as part of the cast.

The 23-year-old is among the 12 participants entering the Spanish villa for the summer, which sees the Islanders couple-up and compete for the cash prize.

The scientist, who is of Nigerian descent but is from Enfield in County Meath, has seen her friends leap to her defence after online bullies asked racist questions regarding her nationality.

One troll remarked that Biala is "far from Irish", while another said, "not Irish and never will be." *Rings bell* SHAME

Luckily, her fans leaped to her aid, saying, "“Born and raised here I’m pretty sure that makes her Irish.” Another wrote, "Just because she hasn’t got white skin doesn’t mean she’s not Irish. Small minded people.”

The Dubliner who is self-confessed unlucky-in-love has seen her Instagram followers increase from 3,000 to more than 21,000 in just one day.

"I don’t think there is a science to finding love and if there is then I have clearly been reading the wrong books," she said of her love life. Twitter supporters were over the moon to see representation onscreen.

One fan wrote: “Today has been a great day for black Irish women…A black Irish woman was elected to the Irish local council and a black Irish woman is gonna be on Love Island."

A Wakanda-level protection group has been made online: "Black Twitter listen the hell up. We are gonna support our queen Yewande Biala to the end no questions, no fuss.. it is what it is.”

“Officially announcing that I am apart of the Yewande Biala defence squad #LoveIsland," wrote another fan.

These ignorant scumbags who are targeting Biala are no match for her fan-base, and we are loving it. We stan an Irish queen.

Pink has had enough of social media trolls when it comes to her kids.

The singer, who regularly posts snaps of her two little ones, slammed the mean comments she received on a post of her young son.

The 39-year-old is mum to seven-year-old daughter Willow and two-year-old son Jameson.

She spoke on The Ellen Show about the ''rude, mean-spirited" comments she received after she posted a semi-nude image of her toddler son.

She said, ''Someone went as far as saying someone should call child services…some of the nastiest things. And I cried so hard after that. I won't share them anymore."

She went on to say that she understood people's concerns but that they could be kinder in their responses.

After posting a snap of her son and daughter and a pelican that had wandered into their home, it was the fact her son had taken his nappy off that accused issue among her followers.

Pink responded with, ''I deleted it because you’re all f*cking disgusting. And now I’m turning off my comments and shaking my head at the state of social media and keyboard warriors, and the negativity that you bring to other people’s lives.''

She also received criticism after she posted a video of her son playing with cars and saying, "Ah, damn it."

She said, ''Some people were like: 'Nice language, I'm sure that came from you' and 'What kind of mother do you think you are?'''

She continued, ''And I understand people saying you need to be more careful because you are in the public eye and you should have thought of that – they're right. But there's a nice way to say that. There's a kind way to be online.''

She said the time was right to stop posting images of her daughter as she is getting older.

She said, ''It's probably time to pull her back from the world and let her live her best life."

We love Pink and her real posts about family life – but we applaud her choice to keep that part of her life private.

Megan Barton-Hanson has spoken out to discuss the comparative comments made between her and Vanessa Baeur following her split from Wes Nelson. 

Megan began dating Wes following their stint on last summer's season of Love Island. Wes was then cast on Dancing On Ice, where we was partnered up with Vanessa Baeur, a professional figure skater. 

While Wes was on the show, he and Megan split, with many believing that Megan was not happy with Vanessa and Wes' budding friendship, after Megan posted to Instagram to chastise her for never introducing herself to Megan.

Speaking at The GLAMOUR Beauty Festival 2019, she discussed how hurt she had felt, after fans of both Love Island and Dancing On Ice made comparisons between Megan and Vanessa. 

'I think a big thing was his Dancing On Ice partner. She is so the polar opposite to me, I've got a very womanly figure and I have curves, I don't go to the gym,' she said.

'She's very toned and athletic and natural and people are like: 'see that's who he deserves, a real natural person'.'

However, she does not believe that she and Wes ended based on anything as superficial as looks. 

'I think Wes is, was, deeper than that. It's not about the outside shell…it's about the person you are in love with so I just have to put that to one side and you can't please everyone.'

'I'm not going to lie, it hurts, I'm human. Just because I have a blue tick next to my name and on a show for a couple of weeks, it doesn't make me invincible, it still hurts.' 

'Everyone will have their own opinion. Only me and him know what actually happened'

What should have been an amazing 21st birthday celebration for Modern Family actress turned sour, when body-shaming trolls attacked her weight-loss.

The gorgeous actress posted a number of photos from her birthday bash, alongside her beloved boyfriend Levi Meaden, and the comments quickly became focused on her physique.

The images show Winter wearing a plaid jumpsuit, showing off her beautiful body, but trolls claimed her slimmer figure was because of plastic surgery.

She captioned the post: "When you see the zankou chicken on the left turn right, and then you’ll be in Marina Del RAH. Happy 21st. Love you always, I couldn’t ask for a better day."

Comments have since been disabled on the series of snaps, after horrible social media users targeted her with hate. One said; "You’re losing your thick", referencing her famously curvy body.

"Healthier? She got work done to her face. She looked 'healthier' before,” one person wrote.

“Nothing wrong with being honest and telling her we liked her better before 'the change' she was so beautiful before she started chopping up her body and if me saying so helps one girl out there to feel beautiful who's thinking of surgery then its worth it,” another person added.

The judgemental, harsh words prompted a response from Ariel herself.

“I appreciate you wanting to help girls love themselves the way they are, but you are also kind of cutting me down,” she wrote. 

“I also didn’t get plastic surgery. That is also not being supportive of women if you’re just assuming something about the way they look," she added. She's had to fight back the haters multiple times before:

She tweeted a few months ago: "My friend sent me the funniest article that's apparently in OK Magazine about my 'super strict diet' and how I only go out to eat if it's healthy food and I don't allow sugar in the house…I eat every carbohydrate possible…"

"I make chocolate chip cookies every week," she added. YES GURL.

Winter has long been the subject of criticism online, especially since her breast reduction surgery at the age of 17 and her choice of fashion.

Earlier in January, somebody even suggested that she binges on drugs to lose weight; "Not half as bad as all the coke.meth she uses. She literally dropped 30 ponds." After correcting her spelling of pounds (thank God), Winter fired back.

“Yup… I dropped 30 bodies of water so fast…” she said. ”And yes!! My psychiatrist switched me from my previous antidepressant that didn’t work and made me gain weight, to coke/meth!! 

Her body shouldn't be attacked by random online users hiding behind a keyboard. Keep doing what you're doing Ariel, you're slaying the game and snatching wigs left, right and centre.

Little Mix are known for lots of things – their catchy lyrics, girl power and super supportive friendships that they have with each other. 

They have long been on the receiving end of criticism  for their revealing stage attire and it looks like they have had enough of it now. 

The pop group, made up of Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jesy Nelson, got candid in an interview about their sexy outfits and how the backlash they get shows serious double standards. 

The X Factor-winning group made the point that Olympic athlete's are never getting attacked by the media or trolls on social media for wearing skimpy clothes.

But they do, because they are dancing.  

Many people have slammed what they wear when they perform on stage as ''provocative'' but the girls aren't planning on changing any time soon. 

Jesy said, ''you should be able to be whatever kind of woman you want to be. You should be able to wear what you bloody want to wear and rock it.''

She continued, ''as long as you feel good about yourself, that's all that matters. It just annoys me. We'll wear a leotard and they're like [pulls a face].''

They compared what they wear to Olympians, who are also usually clad in similar costumes. 

Jesy said, ''but ​​I'm thinking, 'Do you say that to people at the Olympics, that they're too provocative?' No you don't, but because we're dancing, 'Oh, you're too sexy'."

Jade says that they are all feminists, but that doesn't have anything to do with how they dress. 

She said, ''being a feminist doesn't mean that you have to wear a polo-neck jumper and a pair of trousers. Anyone can be a feminist. Feminism is just believing in equality.'' 

We think they look fab and fierce – don't change gals.

We're all big fans of Laura Anderson here.

Not only was she the MVP of Love Island 2018, but she has absolutely no time for trolls.

And now the 29-year-old has had enough of the cruel comments on social media telling her that she looks old.

The Scottish stunner took to Instagram to hit back at the mean comments that have been written about her looks.

She posted a boomerang of herself, make-up free and wrote, 

''I’m a lil bit fed up of the “you look old without make up” comments. IM NOT OLD and I’ve never had a complex about going bare faced. I spent most of my days in the villa like so.''

She continued, ''Yes I have a little pigmentation hence why Ive been keeping up a healthy skincare regime. Thank you @proformaesthetic for my facials over the years and making me feel beautiful in my own skin. #ILOVEMYFRECKLES#we’realldifferent.''

Yaaassss, gal.

Her 1.5 million followers were quick to have her back.

One wrote, ''too many people in the world slate others cos of their own insecurities or jealousy take no notice you look fab with or without the make up.''

While another chimed in, ''naturally beautiful Laura, haters gonna hate. Embrace your freckles.''

We think she looks beyond fab – keep ignoring those people, Laura they're just jel.

The cutest little surprise break away with the in laws 

A post shared by MRS OLIVIA BOWEN. (@oliviadbuck) on

She said, ''everyone in the public eye has people who say nasty stuff about them. I've seen articles about me online where 90 percent of the comments are awful.''

She continued, ''in the past I've ended up in tears about what some people have said about me online. Sometimes it just affects you if you're having a bad day.''

However she did say that she is proud to show her insecurities so that people can't make her feel bad about having them.

She revealed, ''I love to posting photos on Instagram when I'm not wearing any make-up. I want to show my insecurities. I'm showing I can accept that they're there.''

Olivia got hitched to fellow Love Islander Alex Bowen in the first ever Love Island wedding in front of friends and family in Essex last month.

The ceremony took place at Gosfield Hall, on 10 acres of elegant grounds before they headed off to Sri Lanka followed by the Maldives for their honeymoon. 

Now the pair have expanded their family by adopting a cute pup. 

We think she is an absolute stunner and those keyboard warriors can go f**k themselves – keep your chin up Olivia.

Lili Reinhart is so DONE with online bullies right now. 

She has always been vocal about the huge amount of attention that has come her way since she joined the Riverdale cast, and not all of it is positive.

Some of her fans seem to have trouble realising that both Lili and her co-star and real-life boyfriend Cole Sprouse, who plays Jughead Jones, are not actually their characters.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by SPROUSEHART (@itsliliandcole) on

Since Shannon Purser shared an on-screen kiss with Jughead, all of the #Bughead army have been sending MASSIVE amounts of hate poor Shannon's way.

Shannon Purser has never been one to shy away from defending herself, like the true queen she is, and LIli Reinhart has her back.

The former Stranger Things star plays the character of Ethel on the hit Netflix show Riverdale, Wednesday's episode had fans up in arms about a plot-line that was totally out of the actress' hands.

Ethel told Jughead that he had to kiss her in order to get the “scripture” for G&G, so Jughead gave her a quick smooch and they both moved on. Sounds simple, doesn't it? Nope.

Twitter trolls proceeded to attack Shannon, calling her "fat" and "ugly" simply because her FICTIONAL character kissed Jughead. *Sighs*

The Sierra Burgess is a Loser actress allegedly posted a Spongebob meme accompanying the phrase: "All the stans who finally feel comfortable calling me fat/ugly now that Ethel has interfered with their ship.”

She then went on to add, "I’m not stressed about it, trust me. I just wonder what these people will think in like 10 yrs when they remember their twitter and realize they insulted and attacked real human beings for their character on a tv show…"

The Riverdale fanbase is passionate, to say the least, especially regarding relationships. At the end of the day, the show is fictional.

While Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse date IRL, what happens to their characters onscreen is totally unrelated, but some viewers are still angry AF. 

Here's a lil video that the Riverdale cast made to teach 'Safe Shipping'. Watching characters fall in love and desperately wanting them to get together can be a draining process, but the actors themselves are here to teach you.. enjoy gals.

The Kardashian family are well used to getting their fair share of criticism and not-so-brilliant press. 

However, when those mean comments from trolls online start to aim for their children, that's a whole other story.

This has been happening to Khloe recently, who has had to deal with her four-month-old daughter True, getting the brunt of angry people commenting on social media platforms. 

Khloe uploaded a photo of True, her daughter with Cleveland Cavaliers' basketball player Tristan Thompsom, on Instagram recently and it faced a huge backlash. 

The baby was pictured smiling as she sat sitting in a child-sized Bentley, which Khloe captioned, ''I’m not sure what’s cuter, the cute teddy bear driving the Bentley truck or True’s cheeks and smile.Thank you Auntie Kimora and family for the precious gift!''

Some people simply saw a happy baby surrounded by new toys, while others saw red and were quick to point the finger of judgement. 

One wrote, ''MATERIALISMMMMMMM imbedded in her skull already.''

Another said, ''Just remember- kids don’t need crazy big toys to be happy!''

 

You don’t know this yet but you’re my best friend for all eternity!

A post shared by Khloé (@khloekardashian) on

Others couldn't see why people couldn't let it go, with one commenting, ''seriously people if you cannot accept the fact that it is a picture of a cute baby sitting in a gift that was given to her and her mom took a picture then scroll along…. Quit being so negative…..ACCEPT the simple fact cute baby nice picture!!!''

Khloe did hit back though, when one of her followers suggested that she should encourage her daughter to be "closer to God.''

To which Khloe had an articulate response. 

''We read children's bible stories everyday and we say prayers every single night but you should not pass judgement either way. Why be so negative if you are a child of God? She's a baby who received a beautiful sweet gift and I was SOOO excited to put her in it and take a picture! I'm enjoying every single moment I can with my sweet angel! The angel GOD gave me!''

You may not be he biggest fan of the Kardashian's but you have to hand it to Khloe, she handled that perfectly.

Internet funny man, Cian Twomey, has gained quite a significant social media following thanks to his short sketches and overexaggerated impressions of his girlfriend, but it looks like not everyone is a fan.

The cork native is regularly bombarded with negative feedback, however it seems one troll just took it a step too far.

On Tuesday night, Cian posted a screenshot of messages he had received from someone by the name of Kevin.

The messages used vulgar language, were highly insensitive and even made reference to Cian's late father.

Now, while unacceptable at any age, this type of behaviour would be expected from teenager, but as it turns out, these messages came form a 45-year-old man.

Cian explained on his official Facebook page: “I thought it was a kid. Turns out it's a 45 year old man.”

Not content with just responding to the messages directly, Cian did “what any other person would do” – he told Kevin's mother.

 

He finished the post by saying: "Don't mess with me big boy, I'll go telling on you whether you're 12 or 45."

So, basically, unless you want to deal with the wrath of an angry Irish mammy, don't mess with Cian Twomey.

X Factor hopefuls Bratavio have been hit with death threats and homophobic abuse as they progress to the talent competition’s live shows.

Bradley Hunt and Ottavio Columbro enraged fans of the long-running programme when they were named among Louis Walsh’s final three acts for The X Factor’s group category.

According to The Mirror, viewers believe the singers’ ability to progress to the live shows demonstrates how The X Factor has lost credibility in recent years.

While others have encouraged the band to “kill themselves”.

As well as fans of the duo jumping to their defence, Bradley and Ottavio have replied to some of their haters.

She's one-fifth of one of the hottest bands of the moment, but Normani Kordei has now quit social media following an outburst of disgusting, racist abuse. 

The Fifth Harmony singer shared a lengthy message with her fans and revealed she's been bombarded with unwarranted message in recent days.

"Over the course of this last week and especially over the last 48 hours I've not just been cyber bullied, I've been racially cyberbullied with tweets and pictures so horrific and racially charged that I can't subject myself any longer to the hate," the 20-year-old explained to her 1.72million followers.

"Hiding behind a computer and putting people down, especially for the color of their skin doesn't make you cool, it makes you a coward!" she continued.

Among the horrifying attacks she received in recent days is a despicable photo that appears to show her face photoshopped onto a lynched African American, as well as a tweet referring to her as "narmonkey."

However, Normani concluded: "I'm not the first black female celebrity to deal with this and I'm sure I won't be the last," she penned. "I want to take this moment to say Love goes much further than hate in this world."
