Caroline Flack has hit back at a US One Direction magazine who published a “voodoo doodle” of the star surrounded by hurtful and vile messages about the Xtra Factor presenter because of the fling she had with Harry Styles last year.
Claiming that the article published by a One Direction fanzine was the “most hurtful things” she had ever read the 32 year-old took to Twitter to thank fans for all their support.
She wrote: “Im very aware about the voodoo doll article in a certain magazine and have been for some time. It was one of the most hurtful things ive ever read. But thankyou for all the nice supportive messages! I dont take notice of nasty things written to encourage bullying x” (sic)
Despite the horrendous things in the article, Flack proved she still has a sense of humour as she added: "Ive never had so many nice messages in one afternoon!!! Me and my crows feet are thankful. X" (sic)
“Oh and my neice Willow could write a more intelligent article..and shes seven...rant over... I got some serious blonde hair to sort out..eek”
Voodoo Article Attacking Caroline Flack, Aug 15 (Twitter)
Some of the sick taunts contained in the article included referring to the presenter as an “old woman” a “foul mistress” and comparing her to a goat.
Pointing out her flaws, via hateful putdowns the magazine attacks everything from her hair - “Grandma Caroline's dirty-blonde makes her straw like 'do look like the ground at a petting zoo,” to her eye wrinkles, “by the looks of it, these crows' feet are ready to grow wings.”
While also generally insulting her appearance: “Caroline was born in 1979, which in China is know as the year of the goat. Big surprise – she looks like one!”
The article seemed most annoyed about her relationship with Harry and the 15 year ago gape between the couple, writing: “Date boys your age, not your shoe size.”
Responding to the article her publicist told The Mirror: "This is sad and indicative of what Caroline has had to put up with."
"She has had some great support on Twitter though from her followers."
Irish presenter Conor Behan was another person to throw his support behind Caroline and took to Twitter to brand the ugly article “hideously sexist and has gone viral for obvious reasons”.
We think that Caroline has handled the episode pretty well! Let's face it whether this magazine, or any other 1D fan thinks she resembles a farm yard animal she can't be that unattractive - Harry Styles went out with her!
We reckon Caroline gets the last laugh with this one, pipe down with your jealousy!
