A young conservative who was subject to a torrent of hate spanning months after sharing her pro-Brexit opinion as an audience member on BBC Question time is now fighting to become the conservative's youngest MP - after senior female MPs took a stand with her.
While voicing her humble opinion on Brexit at the filming of the BBC's political flagship show in her home county of West Yorkshire, Elena Bunbury, did not expect to cause much of a backlash.
In a thirty second clip the young Brexiteer disputes that Brexit is for the old, concluding: 'I don't believe no-deal is a bad deal'.

Conservative candidate Elena Bunbury (above), 21, received death threats and sexist abuse after supporting Brexit on BBC Question Time
Defence Secretary Penny Mordaunt asked Miss Bunbury 'Are you ok?' following the abuse
However upon waking up the next day after it was broadcast she found Twitter ablaze with hate directed towards her, a previously unknown 21-year-old from Holmfirth in West Yorkshire.
Haters even went so far as to dig through her personal photos, sourcing bikini pictures of the young, female, pro-Brexit, Conservative to share with the caption 'Tory slut'.
She received death threats and was 'outed' as a bisexual, something she had kept private from her family and colleagues until it was thrust into the spotlight.
Speaking to the Times Miss Bunbury said: 'It was wild, so unbelievably unexpected'.
However in a generation-z style retaliation she laid herself bare, re-posting the shamed images of herself in a bikini on Twitter with the caption: 'Enjoy these photos of a stupid slutty Tory bisexual who loves Brexit'.
During the debate show held in Dewsbury on September 20 she defended the UK's decision during the 2016 referendum
The 21-year-old posted two photos of herself wearing bikinis with a message to the Trolls in an act of defiance
