The 28-year-old reality star took to Twitter to share her thoughts on Dr Alex after he received backlash for the way he treated Alexandra on Love Island.
She took to Twitter to write: “Dr Alex… Wow. I have no words for your horrendous sunburned skin.
“AND BAD ATTITUDE, you’re bloody lucky to have one girl even take an interest in your wooden plan personality.
“The way you even thought you could mess poor Alexandra around makes me feel sick. #VilePinkface.”
“When I see a girl getting treated sh***y by a boy on a reality TV show, that’s something obviously close to my heart”
Her tweet hit a whopping 8.7k likes at the time, but shortly after, the reality star was targeted by Dr Alex’s friends, family and thousands of fans.
After the backlash, Charlotte cleared up why she expressed her opinion on Dr Alex and Alexandra.
She said: “One thing I am not is a bully. Being famous doesn’t mean I am above having an opinion and expressing that opinion.
“Neither does it mean that I don’t sometimes go in too hard especially when I see a girl getting treated sh***y by a boy on a reality TV show, that’s something obviously close to my heart.
“I’m sorry if I offended anyone with my animated observation of Alex’s sunburn – it was not my intention.”
Charlotte was referring to her time in Geordie Shore, where her relationship with her ex Gary Beadle was shared publicly.
She had a bad time with Gary in the house, when their on again off again relationship eventually resulted in Charlotte quitting Geordie Shore forever after having an ectopic pregnancy.
The pair were in the house for five years, and despite relationships inbetween, they always went back to each other.
After Charlotte shared the initial tweet, the user looking after Alex’s account wrote: “Expressing an opinion for disliking someone’s personality or mannerisms is understandable, but to attack people for their physical appearance could be considered bullying.”
They later went through some of Charlotte’s old tweets where she said that she was supporting cyber bullying, and wrote: “This is very interesting. @CybersmileHQ might take an interest in some of the behaviour displayed online today.
“Anti bullying is for life, not just for retweets.”
Charlotte explained her side of the story on Instagram, and added that by Dr Alex’s family sharing her comment, it pushed people to give her an influx of hate.
Teary-eyed, she said: “People are actually saying really nasty things. Calling me a s**g, commenting on my personal appearance, not just jokey things like that.
“I’m not even talking a couple of hundred, it’s literally thousands. Which is going against what they stood for in this tweet.
“Because really what you’re doing now, is pushing people to bully me.”
Thousands of people rushed to Charlotte’s side, including her boyfriend Joshua Ritchie who slammed the people in charge of Alex’s twitter account calling them ‘attention seeking’.
