Singer Gifty Louise, who left The X Factor on Sunday, has taken aim at the racist abuse she's received during her time in the limelight

The X Factor’s latest casualty Gifty Louise has hit back at racist online trolls.

Gifty, who was voted out of the ITV singing competition at the weekend after finding herself in the bottom two acts with Four Of Diamonds, has been the victim of a number of vile comments on Twitter.

It seemed to begin before Sunday night’s results show as the singer tweeted that she would not tolerate the abuse.

 

But the trolls still seemed to be targeting her on Monday when she posted another comment about what had been happening.

 

Gifty also had to defend herself after some viewers of her interview on Good Morning Britain complained about her looking so upset about leaving the competition.

 

However, not everyone has been so horrible to the 20-year-old – she also thanked fans for their support following the unpopular decision to vote her off.

 

She’s been receiving celebrity support, as well…

She also got support from other contestants from this year’s show, including Matt Terry, 5 After Midnight member Jordan Lee, booted band Brooks Way, previous contender Freddy Parker, and Caitlyn Vanbeck and Janet Grogan who were sent home in previous rounds.
