The logistics manager reportedly received death threats after being accused of making a racial slur in the comments section of an Instagram post.

On Wednesday, Cathy shared a close-up photo to Instagram of her platinum locks, captioned innocently with the text 'angel vibes' and a cloud emoji.

Confidential revealed on Friday that the makeup artist was accused by some of making a racial slur, when responding to a follower in the comments section. 

When asked about her accent as she 'sounds islander', Cathy reportedly responded: 'I've never had that said to me before, but I'm from New Zealand, so maybe that's why I sound like a hood rat FOB (fresh off the boat?)'
