Dumped Love Islander Amber quits Twitter after cruel trolling | The SunJune 22, 2022
LOVE Island star Amber Beckford's family and friends have disabled her Twitter account due to vile troll abuse.
Viewers watched Amber get dumped from the villa last night alongside Ikenna, after they were voted the least popular contestants.
While the majority of the messages aimed at Amber on social media in the aftermath have been positive, a minority caused deep upset.
It prompted Amber’s sister Haylie, friends Hannah and Taz, and the Beckford family to issue a statement urging viewers to be kind.
It read: "Hey all, Amber's time in the villa has come to an end. We have received some lovely comments & messages and thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
"However as most of you are probably aware of some of the vile tweets, messages and posts that are being written about Amber. As Amber’s family and friends this has been extremely hard to see and sometimes sickening.

Explaining they were taking steps to protect Amber on her arrival home, they continued: "For this reason, we have unfortunately decided to deactivate Amber’s twitter before her arrival home to protect her mental well-being.
