Katie Piper hits back at troll who accused her of having 'lips full of Botox' reminding him she's an acid attack victim

KATIE Piper has hit back at a cruel troll who accused her of having "lips full of Botox" – reminding him that she's an acid attack victim.

The 37-year-old star suffered life-changing injuries after she was targeted by her ex boyfriend in the vile 2008 attack.

She has undergone over 400 operations since, including skin grafts, after major damage to her face and blindness in one eye.

Katie appeared on Sky News earlier today, and one sick online troll couldn't resist taking to social media to make a nasty remark about her appearance.

Tagging her in the message, he wrote: "Oh dear. @KatiePiper_ (Katie Piper, who she?) with lips full of Botox and a designer face drawn by surgeons, on the advertising platform called @SkyNews promoting a publication about people needing to be honest with themselves.

"Couldn't make it up, could you."

Katie did not take the remarks laying down, replying: "My face has been rebuilt by surgeons using other parts of my body after my face was melted down to the muscle and Skelton following an acid attack.

"But regardless, I don't owe you pretty, perhaps use your time more productively than commenting on women's appearance on the internet."

She also penned a moving open letter to others who write nasty comments online, beginning: "After my attack, I used to wear a plastic face mask for my burns, and a wig because my hair was burnt at the front.

"When I first started going out, men used to shout insults like this and other abuse at me."

Katie went on to add that while she hadn't been affected by the troll's words, she was concerned about it affecting others living with "visible difference" in "the most severe way".

Katie's vile assault was organised by her ex-boyfriend Daniel Lynch, but carried out by Stefan Sylvestre.

Daniel was given two life terms behind bar, with Stefan serving six years before being released in 2018.

However, he was re-admitted in November 2019 for a string of car thefts before going free again in June 2020.

Since the attack Katie has undergone pioneering surgery to restore her face and vision.

She went on to find love with Richard Sutton, who she married in 2015, and the pair share two daughters together; seven-year-old Belle and three-year-old Penelope.

In October, Katie had another eye operation to prevent her remaining sight from deteriorating.

In November, Katie received a Honorary Doctorate from Ireland's Royal College of Surgeons for her work as a global healthcare leader.
