The rugby pro has been accused of bullying Tasha after a video posted to his private Instagram Story poking fun at her was leaked.
Jacques was watching the Love Island final from home, having left the villa early, citing mental health difficulties.
While watching the final four couples read out their declarations of love for one another, Jacques couldn't help himself when it got to Tasha's turn.
As she told Andrew how much she adored him, Jacques whipped out his phone and filmed the moment, before turning the camera to himself and quoting Davide Sanclimenti's famous quote from the season: "You are a liar, actress, get the f**k out."
Over the course of the season, Tasha has been subjected to bullying from some of her fellow islanders because she expressed an interest in getting to know other boys while she had been coupled up with Andrew.
The constant targeting of Tasha from the boys in the villa - while Andrew got away with doing the exact same thing - infuriated viewers at home, and even sparked public statements from woman's abuse charities.
Eventually, Andrew and Tasha cleared the air and decided that they wanted to wholeheartedly commit to one another. The loved-up couple quickly became a fan favourite, and most of their fellow contestants finally took it easy on them.
However, Jacques did not appear to get the memo from back in the UK.
Fans were particularly shocked at Jacques's behaviour, considering he has openly discussed his own mental health battle since exiting the villa.
After catching the leaked video from Jacques, furious Love Island fans took to Twitter to discuss his behaviour.
One unimpressed user wrote: "Jacques mocking Tasha is his private story is not only DISGUSTING but a COWARD move. Only a few weeks ago he was advocating for mental health."
A second tweeted: "So Jacques left the villa to protect his own mental health but is still bullying one of the girls from the outside. Does mental health not matter to girls, no?"
And a third asked: "Now why was Jacques calling Tasha a liar during her speech to Andrew?"
A fourth penned: "I'd forgotten all about Jacques, but apparently he was being nasty about Tasha on his Insta Story the other night, so he's still a hypocrite."

Other viewers are wondering whether or not Jacques plans to attend this weekend's Love Island reunion alongside his cast mates.
Not only would the Cumbria lad have to face Tasha, but his former love interest Paige Thorne with her new partner Adam Collard on her arm.
The Love island 2022 Reunion airs at 9pm on Sunday, 7 August on ITV2.
