LOVE Island's Anna Vakili has hit back at the racist trolling she has received since leaving the ITV2 villa.
Walking the red carpet at the TV Choice Awards last night, the 29-year-old revealed she'd been branded a "terrorist".
Anna said: "I am Iranian, and people don’t understand that racism comes in all types not just skin colour.
"The thing I love about black communities is that they stick together, but Middle Easterns they don’t stick together they don’t have that support.
She added: "When I’m getting DMs like 'You Arab ****, you terrorist', stuff like that is a sensitive topic and people were getting at me about that.
"I have been attacked a lot ever since my photo was released, about my looks. I have an attitude but I was not the only girl in the villa with an attitude and that’s the truth."
The former Islander looked sensational as she showcased her hourglass figure in a semi-sheer bejewelled catsuit on the red carpet ahead of the awards.
But while Anna appeared super confident last night, she admitted she often turns to her family for support.
The ex-pharmacist said: "I feel like I get attacked more than anybody, but I am strong and I have a wicked support system around me.
"If I did not have that around me, it worries me people that might not have that support system.
"I actually don’t need therapy because I have my therapy in my family, so I’m lucky I have them."
Last week, Anna was forced to hit back at trolls who accused her and sister Mandi of not letting Amber Gill "heal in peace" following her split from Greg O'Shea.
She wrote: "Had enough of this constant attack, hating bulls*** at me and Mandi.
"It's crazy, if anything Amber is SOOO lucky to have the KRAMP twins around her, we give her love, support, and a place to stay.
"I'm the best friend any of you could have. All I can put this down to is hate and racism towards us because we are Iranian and don't have the kind of support system as other ethnicities in this country.
The pair formed a tight friendship in the famous villa, with Amber moving in with Anna recently.
