Love Island star Tashas family hit out at trolls for making fun of her superpower

The family of Love Island star Tasha Ghouri has spoken out against trolls for "making fun" of her being deaf.

This comes after the 23 year old received backlash from fans after she revealed she was open to getting to now new bombshell Charlie, despite being coupled up with Andrew.

Taking to her Instagram page, Tasha's family wrote: "Hey Everyone! We thank everyone for the love and support for our gal Tasha as we are behind her 110%.

"We understand everybody has opinions both negative and positive but please could we avoid making fun of her superpower – let’s lead with love always."

Tasha was born deaf and got a cochlear implant when she was five years old.

Many people took to Tasha's defence in the comment section under the post.

Coming to Tasha's defence against trolls, many fans also took to Twitter to state that people should not speak about her being deaf.

One person said: "Nah I’m sickened at some of the people on Twitter making comments about Tasha and her being deaf. Some people are just disgusting man. #LoveIsland."

A second wrote: "Yo if you don't like Tasha that's fine but there's no need to tweet about people abusing her because she's deaf #LoveIsland."

"I wish people would stop referring to Tasha as the “deaf girl”. It’s really derogatory #loveisland," another tweeted.

Tasha and Andrew have been in a couple since the beginning of the series, after the public paired them together.

However, after bombshell Charlie entered the villa, Tasha revealed that she was open to getting to know him.

Although Charlie had interest in Tasha also, he chose to couple up with Ekin-Su, leaving Andrew recoupling with Tasha again.

Whilst Tasha claimed that she was happy to remain in her couple with Andrew, many people including a few guys in the villa, didn't believe her.

Tasha then approached Dami and Luca as she was upset that they shook their heads as Andrew chose to recouple with her. Although the three did sort out their differences, Tasha was brought to tears as she felt everybody was making her out to look like the bad one.
