Holly Willoughby has been attacked over social media and branded ‘disgusting’ by trolls after she stood up for LGBT education in schools.
This Morning star Holly had taken to Instagram, to share the message that she supports the inclusion of same-sex teaching in schools to her 5.7 million followers.
While the presenter found her post being liked over 40,000 times, messages of abuse began trolling her with their vile views.
One user posted: “Leave kids alone, stop brainwashing them. This is disgusting.”
The post was made in support of the LGBT support charity Stonewall, adding: “Now is the time to speak up for LGBT-inclusive education. Different families. Same love.”
Despite many negative comments aimed at her post, she was also overwhelmed by positives, celebrities such as Christine Lampard liked her post, while Kate Thornton commented “Amen to that.”
Holly, a long time ally of the LGBT community, recently celebrated 10 years presenting This Morning, with Phillip Schofield.
