Fearne Cotton Brands BBC Jubilee Critics ‘Huge Bullies’

Jake Humphrey chats to Fearne Cotton. Or is he bullying her?
Fearne Cotton has hit back at people who criticised her ‘inane’ contribution to the BBC’s much-maligned Jubilee coverage as “huge bullies”.

Cotton’s interview with Paloma Faith on Tuesday, in which the singer plugged the hell out of her new record and babbled on about a ‘Jubilee Sick-bag’ was the segment which came in for the most stick, but the presenter slammed her critics on Twitter last week.

“Grown men who slag me off in articles/online are huge bullies. I love my job and wouldn’t be doing it if I wasn’t any good at it.”

She said in a later tweet: “in my last few tweets i have not said people cant have an opinion. Opinions are one thing, out right bullying is another. VERY different.”

Cotton also added: “Im a positive person who believes in treating people kindly. I dont understand the mentality of others who think differently.”

Cotton, was bullied at school has been a large part of Radio 1’s commendable Anti-Bullying Campaign singled out micro-blogger Robin Ballance for particular criticism after he wrote under the Twitter handle MrHappySW11: “You were pretty rubbish on the Pageant day, love. And if you can’t see why, then maybe you should find a new career.”

Cotton replied: “Right this is what im talking about. YOU=bully. Take a look at yourself. I have been working nonstop for 15 years thank you… I was bullied at school so there’s no way im having it again as a grown woman.”

“Im from a working class family and have worked hard to get to where i am today. Others will just sit and do nothing but judge,” she added.

So what do you think? Is Fearne Cotton being bullied or is she just sh*t?
