She told OK!: “I try to ignore it if they’re being nasty, you’ve just got to laugh though because the people who are doing it are just f**king losers in their room with nothing to do with their lives. They’re the ones who write nasty things on your pages, all the normal girls and boys just write nice things because they’re happy with their lives, the others are just obviously unhappy."
4. Ferne McCann over her acting dreams…
When Ferne announced that she wanted to conquer Hollywood and break into acting, critics told her she was ‘talentless’. She told Lorraine: “I honestly feel the pressure and I feel and because I come from a reality background you've got that stigma attached and everyone thinks you're talentless. At the musical I felt like I had a point to prove. There's always more than one way to skin a cat. You don't have to go to drama school, if you have a passion then that's fine.”
5. Gemma Collins over THAT orange dress…
Gemma wore an orange dress with shoulder pads to a red caret and the world went into meltdown. A million memes appeared on the web laughing at the TOWIE star.

I can take the mick out of myself so whatever anyone has got to say about me I still find it funny. I even loved the memes.”
6. Binky Felstead on Made In Chelsea
In the early says of MIC, it got a lot of flack for being a bunch of posh people not really doing much and Binky decided to defend her rich pals. She told Digital Spy: “I don't think people understand how much hard work it is and it's not just us. It's mainly the producers and the sound guys who are working a massive amount of hours to make the shots look beautiful. It's a lot of hard work and it's quite scary putting your life on camera. I think people can easily criticise it, but we just say 'Whatever, we got a BAFTA' and I think that says something in itself. I don't even have to bother trying to say anything about it. We got a BAFTA, have you got one? If you have got one then good for you, I'm not going to criticise whatever you do. We appreciate everything that's happened to us but we're all shocked about getting a BAFTA. We're all very grateful for what we've got. We're not snobs or w**kers. We're not hurting anyone.”
7. Whitney Port on baby weight…

9. Cally Jane Beech on being a bad mother…
When Cally took a three day trip to Ibiza this year, social media users posted negative comments branding her a ’bad mother’ and that she was ‘neglecting’ her child. She was livid and clapped back on her Insta story: “I think its disgusting that some people, who I call the 'parent police', try to judge other people's lives when they have no idea what they're doing. I can't even go out for a meal with friends without people thinking, 'Oh my god she's left her baby. I went to Ibiza for 3 days. Vienna wasn't even at home, she was with her grandparents and her dad as it was Luis' birthday. If you're one of these people who comment nasty things on Instagram when you don't know them, you've really got to get a life. It's not very nice when you have no idea who someone really is. I still have feelings too. My child is happy and my child is looked after. I spend every single day of my life with her, apart from those three days in Ibiza."
10. Kim Kardashian on posing nude…
After multiple instances where Kim got a lot of hate for posing naked she decided to address the haters on her app. She wrote: “Hey, guys. I wanted to write a post elaborating on my tweets last night. In all seriousness, I never understand why people get so bothered by what other people choose to do with their lives. I don’t do drugs, I hardly drink, I’ve never committed a crime—and yet I’m a bad role model for being proud of my body? It always seems to come back around to my sex tape. Yes, a sex tape that was made 13 years ago. 13 YEARS AGO. Literally that lonnng ago. And people still want to talk about it?!?! I lived through the embarrassment and fear, and decided to say who cares, do better, move on. I shouldn’t have to constantly be on the defence, listing off my accomplishments just to prove that I am more than something that happened 13 years ago.”
She continued: “I am empowered by my body. I am empowered by my sexuality. I am empowered by feeling comfortable in my skin. I am empowered by showing the world my flaws and not being afraid of what anyone is going to say about me,” she continued. “And I hope that through this platform I have been given, I can encourage the same empowerment for girls and women all over the world. It’s 2016. The body-shaming and slut-shaming—it’s like, enough is enough. I will not live my life dictated by the issues you have with my sexuality. You be you and let me be me,” she concluded. “I am a mother. I am a wife, a sister, a daughter, an entrepreneur and I am allowed to be sexy.(sic)”
11. Khloe Kardashian on helping Lamar…

12. Kendall Jenner on body image pressure...
Kendall got sick of the amount of cruel comments she receives about her body that she decided to clap back on her app. She said: “Living in the public eye can both build and test your confidence at the same time. Everything I do, everything I post and every picture that’s taken of me is judged by everyone. Getting papped all the time and having my picture posted everywhere is not always fun. And not every picture is going to be a good one.”
13. Chloe Ferry on her Geordie antics…
Dawn French slammed reality shows this week saying they promote bad behaviour and promiscuity. Chloe Ferry defended the antics of the Geordie Shore cats to Closer magazine. She ranted: “I don’t think my behaviour has been shocking at all. At the end of the day, I’m young and I’m just having fun. If people don’t like that then they’re boring. I did nothing wrong – having fun is what young people do! The reason I got on Celebrity Big Brother was because if my last series of Geordie Shore when I was crazy. So I thought to myself, ‘I’m going to do exactly what I do on Geordie Shore because that’s why they wanted me in there.’ I don’t feel like I should be defending myself.”
