Another put: "Ignore the trolls!
"They troll because they don't have lives and have got nothing better to do."
Her comments come after axed Love Island star Remi suggested the sports ace was a "bully" and made his time in the Mallorca compound "s**t."
The reality TV star – who was dumped alongside Afia Tonkmore this week – said that the rows always went unaired by the ITV2 show.

Remi, 22, was joined by his co-star Afia Tonkmor to discuss his time in the Majorcan villa after he was dumped earlier this week.
The model opened up about how one of the male Islanders ruined his time on the show and made it "s**t" thanks to arguments.
He revealed that his co-star Jacques, 23, had been winding up the boys – and that he often had to "stick up for" himself.
Opening up on YouTube series Reality with Will Njobvu, Remi said; "There was a lot of stuff that wasn't aired – a lot of stuff going on.
"So basically – me and Jacques got into quite a lot of arguments and it just made my experience s***t. It ruined it for me."
"People were saying, "It's because he's got a rugby persona' – but you can't treat people like that," Remi hit back against Jacques.
He went on to say that his co-star would "constantly" mimic and make fun of his fellow Islanders, causing rows between them.
"He was just trying to get onto me," Remi continued. "It was like, 'Hi I'm Remi, I'm hard and I'm from Manny', it was just so jarring."
"I was the only one to stick up for myself. We just got into a lot of fights and stuff," he concluded of his time in the villa.
