Gemma Collins hits back at 'horrific bullies' who fat shamed her outside a cafe
Gemma Collins, who has been quite vocal about her struggles with weight, revealed precisely what she thinks of the verbal abuse that she was subjected to
Gemma Collins was branded a 'fat c**t' last month while she was sitting and enjoying a coffee with pals in Brentwood, Essex. Now, the reality star is giving back the insults that were unfairly hurled at her, according to reports.
In a Twitter post, Collins, who has been quite vocal about her struggles with weight, hit back at the people who fat-shamed her last month and demonstrated precisely what she thinks of the verbal abuse. When soap actor Adam Thomas found out about the whole thing, he replied to the tweet "that's f**king horrific."
Later, Collins gladly retweeted the reply from Adam to her social media feed. The incident that took place in late September was filmed by the offenders. The video saw a pair of men giggling as they drove up to the reality TV star who was sitting outside a eatery.
A man, called Gaz in the video clip, asks his pal if he should go up to Collins and tell her "what they think of her." The other man named Steve says they should, branding her a "fat s**g". They then drive alongside Collins and roll down the window seemingly to say hello to her.
Collins, who was largely unsuspicious of the group, waved back at them. The men then call her "'a fat c**t", adding: "You're eating again, you fat f****** pig!" That was when Collins realized what was exactly happening and swore at the men who then drove off, still giggling.
The video appeared on Youtube on October 5, a long time after the incident allegedly took place. Collins meanwhile received plenty of support from her fans on Twitter who rushed to her defense. "Hope you’re okay Gem... the video of the 2 vile 'men' shouting at Gemma Collins has made me sad, she still has feelings," one posted.

A third posted: "The video going viral of two men shouting abuse at @missgemcollins from a car is VILE! What excuse is there for being that harsh to someone?! Silly little boys need their heads bashed against a wall. Hope they don't have daughters! #bullies"
