OLLIE Willaims’ sister has begged fans to stop sending death threats and abuse after he quit the show “for love”.
The 23-year-old aristocrat walked out of the ITV2 dating show yesterday after claiming he’s still in love with his ex-girlfriend.
However, fans were already demanding he be removed from the series as photos of him posing by the carcasses of dead animals from a shooting holiday in Africa were uncovered.
While he’s now left the show, Ollie’s sister Eloise took to Instagram on Tuesday to reveal the “vile threats” and “hateful comments” targeted at her.
The student wrote in her first Story: “I’m honestly shocked I have to write this but anyone watching that show knows the effects online abuse can have on individuals but not just them, their families too.
“The amount of vile threats/comments I alone have received is not ok.
“I’m fed up of watching the same people preach about mental health and male suicides rising to then use their accounts to write hateful comments about someone’s image. Please think about who your words could be affecting next time!!”
In the next story, she shared a message from a troll that read: “Lol good cos you’re a stupid Tory c**t.”
Eloise wrote over the message: “Right seeing as it hasn’t stopped: anyone who sends abuse to me now shall be uploaded for all the world to see, let’s see if you continue when you know your friends could see it.
“(Apologies for language and any offence to my friend/family) but it’s one way to out a keyboard warrior.”
This comes after Ollie left the villa after claiming he was still in love with ex-girlfriend Laura Nofer, 23, who he dated for 18 months before splitting last year.
An insider told us: “The show made Ollie realise he wasn’t ready to be in another serious relationship and he still has really strong feelings for Laura.
“Meeting girls who were so different to him and his background only clarified how he felt about his ex and he felt it was only fair to leave the competition and sort his head out.
“He told producers and acted on his feelings as soon as he made up his mind.”
His exit will be seen on tonight’s show.
A Love Island spokesperson said: “Ollie has made the decision to leave the Love Island villa.”
However, Love Island fans have suggested he was asked to leave the show after The Sun exposed photos of his trophy hunting.
A huge 35,000 people signed a petition to get him kicked off the show.
The page’s description reads: “ITV allowing him to be on the show is implying that they are okay with his sick and sadistic hobby. Ollie Williams should not be allowed to take part or compete in the Love Island series and he should not be allowed on a such a public platform.”
Telly watchdog Ofcom also revealed today they’d had a huge amount of complaints about Ollie – 467 complaints in total.
One fan convinced it was the hunting scandal that caused his departure said: “Ollie has left the villa!! I wonder if he was forced out cos of the animal trophy hunting?”
While this one said: “Ollie got kicked off love island for hunting animals and the cover up story is he misses his ex so decided to leave.”
Another commented: “Forget Ollie leaving #LoveIsland but honestly it is clearly because he got exposed for hunting animals – not because he still loves his ex.”
