The internet can be a pretty nasty place. Even apparently pleasant celebrities are wise not to Google themselves unless they have particularly thick skin. So what if you’re the villain of a reality TV show?
For Lauren, the famously fiery and bitingly critical contestant on the current series of My Kitchen Rules, the reaction on the world wide web has been nothing short of brutal. In an interview with New Idea, Lauren said that she and her husband of two years, Carmine, have struggled with the backlash.
“The social media comments are really, really nasty,” said Lauren. “We try not to look at it too much, but time to time we will have a little peruse.”
After incidents like the infamous horn blowing and even last week’s “attacky” spat with Monique, critics have pounced, leading Lauren to conclude that she is “the most hated person in Australia right now”.
