Sam Frost has revealed she’s been the target of cyber bullying for quite some time now.
And the reality TV star says the latest round of attacks have finally broken her.
On July 4, the 26-year-old took to social media to concede defeat.
“To the fake accounts heavily rolling me online and into my personal life,” she began.
“If you wanted to break me… Congratulations, you have won.”
The emotional outpouring was then hashtagged with the word “broken” and a broken heart emoji.
While the nature of the bullying is not yet known, it must have been serious enough to cause the radio host to finally give up so publicly.
It also cause shock and worry in the online community, with fans concerned over her wellbeing.
Fellow Australian celebrity Charlotte Dawson took her own life after being relentlessly bullied online, posting a similar message declaring the trolls had finally won.
Sam’s fan’s quicky sprang into action, offering kinds words and support.
Sam can’t wait to see Richie as the Bachelor. Check out her supportive words in the clip below. Post continues.
She even got a personal message from a fellow reality TV alum, Big Brother’s Tully Smyth.
“HEY YOU!” Tully said. “You are strong, smart and beautiful.”
Tully continued: “Do not let faceless cowards get inside your head.
“Switch off the night xxx”
Another fan raised their support: “You are beautiful, strong and a successful person. Bullies don’t deserve our time or attention. Sending hugs.”
The former star of The Bachelorette penned an open letter to her bullies earlier this year.
“I don’t think people really understand the impact of it,” Sam said. “Those empty words you write behind a keyboard have an eternal effect on the person they're directed at…
“You could ruin their day, their week and even their life,” she said.
