Love Island's Amber Gill Claps Back At Fat Shaming Trolls After She Put On Stone During Lockdown
Love Island's Amber Gill has hit back at social media trolls who fat shamed her for putting on weight during lockdown.
Seriously guys, don't we have bigger problems right now than to be body shaming others?
Posting an image on her Instagram grid, 24-year-old Amber wrote: "Not me on tiktok being fat shamed?! What?
"First of all we are in a pandemic. Second, how do people look so closely that they notice before I even notice.
"I've been living in hoodies and sweatpants for the whole of this year and ended up putting on a whole stone! I can't lie I was shocked but I cannot cook to save my life so it was takeout breakfast lunch and dinner so I don't know what I expected.
"And with another lockdown potentially on the horizon it could happen again. I'm sure the people that commented are the image of perfection so thank you for that. Whoever put on weight this year don't worry I'm with you."
Fans and mates were quick to support Amber, with fellow reality star Vicky Pattison commenting: "I literally seen this picture of you and thought, god she looks gorgeous! Then I read the caption. Some people are just so full of hate, keep doing you and shining bright beautiful girl - then you'll really p**s them off."

While Love Island star Anna Vakili added: "You look hotttt f** them."
Meanwhile one fan wrote: "So what, we gain a bit of weight. If that helps keep us sane and have some enjoyment it's fine."
"Don't give a f**k what anyone says about you, you are gorgeous whatever weight you are," added another.
Amber recently spoke out about being more authentic on Instagram, especially during the pandemic. She told OK!: "During lockdown I kind of wanted to be positive for other people when really I was feeling stressed, but I was probably doing that for other people's sake to boost morale.
"Subconsciously, I'm posting something and pretending to be happy when I'm not really happy myself, so yeah I've definitely done that a couple of times.
"I think it's important because for me I've got millions of followers and they will listen to me, they think that I'm authentic and that everything I'm saying is the truth and they follow me to see me. I think it's really important to be honest with them because even I judge people's lives from Instagram so I can't imagine how they feel seeing me living my best life."
