Love Island Australia’s Erin Barnett tells judgmental Brits to ‘stop attacking’ her as she faces backlash from the other side of the world
Love Island Australia’s first season one has become a ratings hit in Great Britain, two years after it first aired in Down Under.
And amid her second wave of notoriety, Erin Barnett has been forced to defend herself against judgmental Brits who are sending her harsh messages on Instagram.
The 25-year-old nurse shared a busty selfie and reminded her critics that they were watching events that had actually happened in 2018.
Slamming the critics: Love Island Australia’s Erin Barnett has told fans critics to ‘stop attacking’ her and sending harsh messages on Instagram as season one of the reality show airs in British
She wrote: ‘Yeah, look, I was a crazy b***h and swore a lot. Not much has changed.
‘But I have grown up and realised I probably shouldn’t of said some nasty things to some of the girls on the show, probably shouldn’t of done a lot of s**t I did on the show.’
Erin explained that, just like everyone else, she had done regrettable things in the past.
‘We had cameras everywhere for your entertainment, so don’t you dare sit on your couch and start attacking us on social media for things we did or said,’ she wrote.
‘You are lying to yourself if you are saying you’ve never gone a bit OTT with your partner because of another girl/boy.’

Two years after filming Love Island, Erin is in a long-term relationship with a man named Mick Russell – and is even a stepmother to his children.
‘You have no idea how Mick has changed my life for the better. He makes me feel safe, secure and happy!’ she wrote.
Erin also thanked fans for showing their support and sending lovely messages as the show continues to air in Britain.
‘He makes me feel safe, secure and happy!’ The reality TV star told followers that she since moved on from the show and is now in ‘the best relationship’ of her life with her boyfriend Mick and his children.
‘Enjoy the show in your lounge room and when the episode ends. Leave it there. Don’t attack us on Instagram, we don’t care. We have well and truly moved on,’ she concluded.
In 2018, Erin was coupled up with now ex-boyfriend Eden Dally on Love Island and they made it to the grand finale together.
But they missed out on the winning the show and the $50,000 cash prize, which went to Grant Crapp and Tayla Damir instead.
