Katie Piper shares abhorrent messages from after her eye surgery

Katie Piper has given an insight into the cruel trolling she faces, after being branded 'repulsive and ugly' by a social media user. 

Taking to the photosharing site, the activist, 37, posted a screen shot of a shocking message from a follower reading: 'You're the most repulsive and ugliest thing I've ever seen why even bother with make-up.'

She has previously spoken about becoming a victim of online bullying, ever since she entered the public eye to raise awareness of her injuries sustained from an acid attack in 2008, and has now insisted: 'More work needs to be done'.

In a now-expired video viewed by MailOnline, Katie read an affirmation to her Instagram followers as she admitted that the online comments hurt her feelings, but said she tries not to let them impact her life.
