Furious Emily Atack takes aim at fat-shaming trolls

Star is worried haters could affect young girls with vile comments

| Updated:

Comedy star Emily Atack has launched a furious four-letter word tirade at online bullies criticising her appearance.

The Inbetweeners actress, 29, returned fire on fat-shaming trolls after they pulled her stunning BRITs outfit apart on Instagram.

Negative comments were made about the shape of her stomach in the dazzling white dress she wore for the event.

And there were also snide remarks made on social media about the I’m A Celebrity favourite indulging in pizza before attending the bash.

Emily, however, refused to accept being a target for cruel jibes, putting her detractors in their place.

“To all the lovely comments lots of you say to me, thank you from the bottom of my heart,” she tweeted.

“To those who continue to call me fat, have a wonderful evening, and then go and [bleep] yourself.”

The Charlotte Hinchcliffe star is still seething about the vile attacks – but she’s also concerned the haters may influence and affect others with their despicable remarks.

Emily explained to OK! magazine: “People were saying the dress was unflattering, but I really liked it. I get fat-shamed a lot, but I don’t give a [bleep].

“I’d be more upset about comments on my personality. But it’s other young girls looking at those comments.

“I’m not fat, so they might think, well if she’s fat, then what am I?'”

It was reported yesterday that Emily was ‘dumped’ from the Inbetweeners reunion at the request of co-star James Buckley.

A newspaper claimed the Jay Cartwright actor delivered an ultimatum to TV bosses because he feared his wife would find out about a ‘brief fling’ between the comedy stars that occurred before he was married.
