New Zealand actress Teuila Blakely has defended herself after being viciously trolled over a selfie she posted to Instagram with NRL Warriors player Konrad Hurrell.
As a result the Warriors fined Hurrell $5,000 and he made a public apology for his ‘bad decision’. Blakely is seventeen years older than Hurrell.
Blakely was recently at Sydney Airport where she ran in to Hurrell, who she says she “hadn’t seen for months” and seeing him was “actually kind of cool”.

“And basically, you know, it’s not even like bullying or f***ing trolling, it’s goddamn persecution … Anyway, I’m just here relaxing and letting you know and I’m still approximately giving, um, zero amount of f***s c***s!”
Following the release of the sex tape, which saw Blakely and Hurrell engaging in sex acts in a car, she received death threats and had a commercial partnership deal dropped.
