Hollyoaks star Jeremy Edwards exposes fat-shaming trolls

Hollyoaks star Jeremy Edwards has hit out at fat-shaming trolls, after he received cruel messages on social media.

The actor, who portrayed Kurt Benson on the Channel 4 soap, took to Twitter, calling out those who felt the need to abuse others online.

Jeremy said in a tweet: ‘Imagine being this person who decides “hmm, what shall I do today? I know! I’ll abuse someone I’ve never met, will never meet about something that is not true but I know they are sensitive about. Maybe I’ll ruin their day? Excellent idea!”

‘How terribly sad.’

The soap star also attached photos of the cruel comments he received.

Former Hollyoaks and Emmerdale star Gemma Atkinson added: ‘Says nothing about you Jeremy and Everything about them. Insecure little bullies who clearly don’t like themselves very much. Keep your chin up mate!’

This comes after Jeremy revealed that his decision to not return to Hollyoaks had been influenced by abusive messages he’d received on the social media platform.

‘It is with a heavy heart I am announcing I will NOT be returning to #Hollyoaks,’ he said in a tweet last month.

‘Many reasons but I’d be lying if I said being judged on here hasn’t influenced my decision.

‘Never say never but for now, I’m done. Thank you to those who have supported me for me.’
