Love Island fans have been calling for the show's latest bombshell to be axed from the show.
Danny Bibby, who entered the villa in Thursday night's episode, chose Kaz Kamwi to take out on a date.
However, some viewers have been outraged after finding Danny's Instagram and seeing he used a racial slur when replying to a comment on the app - and believe he should now be removed from the programme entirely.
On a photo posted in 2019, the heavily tattooed plumber from Wigan received a comment from a friend on a selfie, saying "Champ."
A reply from Danny's account from at the time read: "My n****", which led to many people demanding his immediate removal from the villa.
Taking a screenshot of the racist comment, YouTuber Murad Merali said: "This new Danny guy?! Excuse me? Just cancel this season immediately."
Murad's post quickly gained traction, with people agreeing the 25-year-old should be shown the door.
"The fact he posted that with absolutely no shame is scary," one person agreed, while another said: "[Love Island] removed [season 5 contestant] Sherif with such quickness, imma need them to do the same with him."
Another person questioned the vetting process, writing: "Surely you'd look through someone's Instagram before putting them on the show?" while a fourth said: "Get Danny out of the villa before I break in and drag him out myself.
Danny's father, Richard, has since spoken out about the slur, which has since been deleted from Danny's Instagram account.
"Danny does not have a racist bone in his body and there were no racist intentions to this post," he said. "Although it was not done maliciously, it was a mistake. I absolutely apologise on his behalf for the offence this wording may have caused. That would never have been his intention."
Tyla has contacted ITV for comment.
