Military Wife Slams Internet Bullies
Samantha Stevenson shocked by online taunts over tattoos...
One of the voices of this year's Christmas number one has been subjected to online abuse over her tattoos.
Military Wives currently enjoying the top spot in the Official UK Singles Chart, revealed that internet 'trolls' have been taunting her, calling her body art "vile and disgusting".
"There were loads of nasty comments," she told the Daily Mail. "It was hurtful. My tattoos made me stand out from the rest of the girls.
"Most people are lovely and supportive, but I've been really shocked by the reaction to my tattoos by people on the internet.
"They say I'm vile, I'm a disgusting woman with disgusting tattoos and I shouldn't be allowed on television."
Samantha has vowed not to let the criticism get to her though, and plans to celebrate hit single Wherever You Are with a new tattoo.
She added: "I'm going to have a poppy tattoo to celebrate the single going to number one."
