Ex On The Beach Star Ashley Cain Shames Racist Twitter Troll
Fans come out in support of Ashley Cain over vile abuse...
We all know that there's a nasty underside to social media, where people think they can write things they'd never get away with saying to someone's face...
Well former Ex On The Beach star Ashley Cain has decided that he's not going to let a Twitter user get away with it this time, after being sent racist abuse.
Taking to the social network yesterday evening, the self-styled "bad boy of MTV" wrote: "Shouldnt let it affect me but getting tweets like this on a daily basis from idiots like that makes me mad at times."
Ashley shared a screengrab of a tweet to him saying: "Wow did you come up with that urself? Doubt it N***ers don't have brains," followed by three banana emojis.
It seems they had previously told him "I hate seen you tweet", and got upset when the reality TV star hit him with a killer comeback.
Ashley had written: "I hate keep seeing your moms caked up knickers on my floor but s**t happens kid."
And once the racist abuse started flowing, he added: "So because he lost he's had to change his display picture and resort to racist tweets like this. What an idiot."
Ash's followers expressed their sympathy, disgust and incredulity at the abuse.
One wrote: "I hate racist people my dads dark too so people think it's okay to call you names."
Another tweeted: "It's unreal how disgustingly vile some people are in this day and age."
And another said: "It's not even about being affected! No one wants to read classless, demeaning, and racial slander in their mentions."
The Ex On The Beach season finale will be screened on MTV next Tuesday at 10pm.
