Gogglebox’s Tom Malone Jr slams racist trolls who send abuse to his girlfriend12/29/2020
Gogglebox star Tom Malone Jr spoke openly about the online abuse he faces as being part of an interracial couple.
Tom and his model girlfriend Bryony Briscoe were not holding back as they exposed nasty trolls who hounded them with racist slurs.
In the honest discussion which formed part of a question and answer session on Instagram, Tom was asked if he and Bryony had came across any issues as an interracial pairing.
The Channel 4 star confirmed that they had been targeted by a number of "fake accounts" on social media.
Sat on the sofa with Bryony at his side, he began to explain: "They are always behind a fake account and they just post like the usual stupid things like monkey emojis that clearly aren't original."
Then, Bryony, who is on the books with M Models Management, added that online bullies had called her a "wannabe slave".
She added: "I also get people telling me not to date outside my race.
"But, they don't realise that I am mixed race and then when they realise that it is 'Well, you are what your father is,' and I become white, so what is it?"
Professional dancer Tom shared his nifty hack for ignoring horrid comments as he urged others to simply "be happy".
He added: "At the end of the day just be with who you wanna be with and be happy because these people aren't even brave enough to have their own name or faces on their account
"So just p*** them off even more by being happy because that's the biggest middle finger."
Meanwhile, prior to Christmas the television reviewer revealed the gleeful news that he and Bryony had taken their relationship to the next level – with the pair moving in together.
It's not known for sure how long Tom Jr and the fashion model have been dating but they decided to go public with their romance in July this year, sharing a loved-up snap.
Just five months later, they have shown their commitment to each other and decided to take their relationship to the next level.
After the pair had finished moving their belongings in to their new home they shared a snap of them sporting matching loungewear as they sipped on champagne to toast their "new beginnings" together.
Tom has previously had to fight off trolls who said he was "punching above his weight" with Bryony.
