Zoe-Clare McDonald was branded 'annoying' and 'dramatic' by viewers during Wednesday's premiere of The Bachelor.
And a day after her cocktail party 'meltdown' aired, Zoe-Clare's sister Rachel has now defended her on Instagram.
On Thursday, Rachel told Trolls who had subjected her sister to ridicule and bullying on social media to 'get f**ked'.

'The ridicule and bullying is alarming!' The sister of Bachelor star Zoe-Clare McDonald has hit back at Trolls who branded her 'annoying and dramatic' after her cocktail party meltdown
Zoe-Clare, 23, had a meltdown over being the 'only redhead' in the mansion, and claimed she was being unfairly targeted by Areeba Emmanuel.
Rachel, who has boycotted The Bachelor in the past because of its over-the-top editing, said she never wanted her sister to join the franchise.
'Although my sister's behaviour wasn't favourable, the ridicule and bullying she has received from this is so alarming. It truly shows the magnitude of people's willingness to look the other way for a laugh,' she said.
