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?
