Love Island's Shaughna Phillips Hits Back At Trolls Over 'Wonky Building' Accusation

Love Island's Shaughna Phillips slammed trolls on Instagram after some of her followers accused her of Photoshopping and editing her pictures.

The 27-year-old posed in front of a building wearing a sleeveless crop top and a yellow midi skirt. While many people took to the comments section to praise Shaughna's outfit, others claimed that the building in the background looked 'wonky' and accused the reality TV star of editing her pictures.

After one follower commented "Photoshopppppppppppppppp", Shaughna replied: "Jesus Christ judging by your pictures you should try it".

The "photoshop" comment and Shaughna's response appear to have been deleted as of Friday morning.

Tyla has contacted Shaughna's reps for comment.

Other comments mentioned the "wonky lines" on the building and one comment said: "I hope one day you'll be confident enough to upload a true photo where you haven't manipulated your body. You should be proud of how you actually look."

The pictures come after Shaughna bravely opened up about her battle with lipoedema, which had an extremely emotional effect on her time in the villa last year.

Shaughna had liposuction on her legs in September after being diagnosed with lipoedema. Lipoedema is a condition that occurs because of an unusual build-up of fat under the skin and mainly affects the legs and sometimes the arms, according to the NHS.

The operation saw two litres of fat drained from her calves. Speaking to The Sun, Shaughna said she faced years of bullying over the size of her legs, which left her feeling self-conscious and insecure.

She said she spent most of her time on Love Island crying to a therapist.

"My legs had been my biggest body hang up since I can remember," she said.

"It has been the one thing I have always said I would want to change about myself."

Whilst in the villa, Shaughna said she would get painful, "constant bruising" on her legs and had "no idea what is was". After her stint in the villa ended in February 2020, she received messages on Instagram from a follower who asked if she had been diagnosed with lipoedema.
