A MUMMY blogger who trolled her mates and even her husband has been bombarded by comments on Instagram, labelling her a “bully”.
Clemmie Hooper, of the Mother of Daughters account, admitted to writing cruel comments about those close to her, under a fake profile on the Tattle Life gossip site, on Thursday.
In the wake of the revelation Clemmie, who turns 35 today, has lost 3,000 followers on Instagram – as many asked how she could become the troll, knowing how hurtful such comments can be.
Posting on her Instagram stories, the mum-of-four explained she joined Tattle Life to defend herself from negative comments – but soon escalated into insulting her fellow bloggers.
Writing as AliceinWanderlust, she even described her husband Simon – who boasts over 2 million followers – a “class A t***” in an attempt to throw other users off the scent.
Clemmie has not posted on Instagram since the announcement – but many followers have reacted on the comments section of her most recent pic.
Although some backed Clemmie, one person wrote: “I don’t understand how anyone can defend her after reading the posts.
“She knows being trolled hurts so why on earth would she do it to her friends & family… Fancy trolling your own husband”.
Another woman said: “You’re too faced, you joined tattle in 2018, you commented and bullied other parents.”
While a third slammed: “What a great example to set to your kids…unfollowed”.
Another former fan said: “You joined the bullies and got caught ! It’s so sad you did it and continued to do it.
“I’m sure your fans will think you deserve a virtual hug but you need a virtual break from your poison”.
The midwife and influencer is believed to have been exposed after Tattle Life users spotted that she and her alias were both in St Lucia.
So she began trying to deflect from her true identity, by insulting those close to her.
Clemmie admitted her actions after fellow mummy blogger Laura Rutherford, who had been targeted by her, addressed the “betrayal of trust” online – without revealing who was behind it.
Bethie Hungerfood, Louise Boyce and Susie J Verill have since come forward to express their hurt over what they described as “online bullying.”
There are more than 25,000 signatures on a petition to have Tattle Life, which is described as “a commentary website on public business social media accounts”, removed.
Posting on Instagram, one follower claimed Clemmie’s apology post was really more of “an excuse” for her actions.
She said: “She made horrible jealous comments about people she was friends with. Not insta-friends, real friends.
“These comments were not made to ‘defend’ herself, but just to detract attention from the fact people thought it was her.”
While a second said: “Inexcusable behaviour! You have hurt so many people and caused them stress & anxiety…shame on you.”
Some even questioned how Clemmie’s trolling sat with her job as a midwife.
One said: “As a fellow healthcare professional we have a responsibility towards ourselves and others regarding what we post online.
“A professional code of conduct. Its easy to get caught up in materialism/ads and money that brings in, but we have to rise above it. Unfollowing both accounts”.
Clemmie and husband Simon, also 35, have four children — Anya, 11, Marnie, eight, and twins Ottillie and Delilah, three.
She was due to attend the How To Fail event yesterday, but cancelled in the wake of the backlash.
Yesterday we reported on a mum who was heartbroken after telling her kids she had breast cancer at 35, just WEEKS after their dad had a quadruple heart bypass.
