Former Coronation Street star Kym Marsh slams NHS abusers in Twitter rant

Kym doesn't think they should be treated

Former Coronation Street star Kym Marsh has slammed NHS abusers in a Twitter rant during the coronavirus pandemic.

Currently National Health Service staff are risking their lives as they help treat patients who have the deadly coronavirus.

After reading some abuse stories of people lashing out at NHS staff, who have been working long hours, Kym used her social media to hit out at the abusers.

She wrote: "Seems some people have no respect for our NHS! The stuff I have seen tonight is beyond vile! I hope those people never need help! Makes me sick!"

Fans rushed to agree with Kym and share their stories.

One fan tweeted: "My other half is NHS and she said colleagues have had their cars vandalised and had things said to them about NHS thinking they're so special.

"It's [bleep] jealousy which I can't really work out. Why be jealous of someone risking their lives to save others."

A second tweeted: "They'll be the first ones shouting for treatment when they're ill though."

Another fan added: "They shouldn't be allowed help, end of..."

Kym replied saying: "Agreed."
