The model and ex-WAG defended her family from internet trolls making horrible comments about her children.
The internet is in the most part a positive thing.
It allows us to stay in touch with friends and family, stay connected and share our lives online with our loved ones. But as always, there are those out there that ruin the online community and these are known as trolls.
Trolls are the source of most online hatred and lurk in the comments section on websites and social media pages typing hurtful comments and none are the target of these keyboard warriors more than celebs.
Danielle Lloyd recently took to Instagram to put her foot down and take a stand against these bullies who are consistently targeting her and her family.
Day in day out, I wake up to messages from people telling me that people on social media or the online papers are saying horrible things about me. Hard though it is, I’ve learned to cope. But suddenly, things have escalated to a whole level since my family, and my children are being verbally abused daily. Needless to say, we know who you bullies are - and your days of making fun of my children are numbered. Be weirdly obsessed with me if you have to - but leave my kids alone. This is just a tiny part of what this person has written online but the same person opens numerous fake accounts just to abuse me and my family and my kids. #disgusting #obsessed #freak #wheredoyougetthetime #bully
The picture she uploaded were some cruel remarks in the comments section of a major news website who had written an article about her and her children.
In the caption alongside the photo she said: "Day in day out, I wake up to messages from people telling me that people on social media or the online papers are saying horrible things about me."
She explains that she has become used to it but now her children are involved she wants to stamp out these trolls for good.
She said: "Needless to say, we know who you bullies are - and your days of making fun of my children are numbered."
This is a reminder that if you do receive abuse online there are steps you can take to report the culprits to the websites concerned.
