Scarlett Moffatt 'cried her eyes out' after appearing on Love Island's Aftersun

Scarlett was the talk of Twitter.

IN A SERIES of emotionally-charged tweets, Scarlett Moffatt revealed that the criticism she endured following her appearance on Love Island’s Aftersun last night left her in tears.

The 27-year-old, who joined Caroline Flack on the spin-off show, was the subject of disparaging remarks in the hours that followed the show’s airing, with a number of viewers honing in on Scarlett’s size and appearance.

While Love Island presenter, Caroline Flack, and the show’s narrator, Iain Stirling, reached out to Scarlett and praised her appearance on the show, it seems criticism from the viewing public was difficult to shake off.

The former Gogglebox star was accused of ‘letting herself go’ by Love Island viewers, with some members of the public suggesting Scarlett was preparing for the ‘Before’ photo for a fitness DVD.

Yeah we know, sound.

Scarlett, who has spoken in the past about her experience with social anxiety, argued that this level of online vitriol ultimately contributes to the rise in disorders of this nature.

Responding to the body-shaming remarks made at her expense last night, Scarlett urged the public to think before they tweet.

Scarlett concluded her message with a post reminding the public that despite her rise to fame, she still struggles with the same insecurities as others.

She finished with a nod to her family:

I wanted and felt like I had to write that tweet to let you know at the end of the day I’m a 27 year old girl with feelings & a family who get upset also when they see vile comments about my appearance. Something needs to change with our society!

Caroline Flack replied to Scarlett’s upset with a tweet to thank her for her contribution.
