TALULAH Eve has detailed the extent of the abuse she receives online - revealing she has been threatened with an acid attack.
The Britain's Next Top Model contestant took to Twitter where she posted a screenshot of someone posting vile threats towards her.
She wrote: "I'm never really one to go on and on about the trolling I receive but when people threaten me with an 'acid attack' it's just hard to fathom what goes on in people's minds in order to say sickening things like that."
In the screenshot, a man named Robert posts "Acid attack" and Talulah's fans rush to her defence.
One wrote: "Are you serious? Acid attack? You need to grow up. Haven't you got kids? Real role model you are."
Another wrote: "Is that a threat, because you could really be considered a huge threat.... if so, Talulah-Eve Brown could easily go to the police about you."
A source close to Talulah exclusively told The Sun Online that she has been left quite shaken up by the threats.
The source said: “Talulah is such a strong character, she’s trying to not let it affect her but she is human.
"Being in the public eye makes you enough of a target, let alone when you’re transgender.
"You’re very much a marked person at that point.
"People can be so hateful and it can get quite ugly. She’s used to being yelled at in the streets, even before she became famous.
"This acid threat has definitely knocked her for six. We’ve all seen how it’s become something of a trend.”
Talulah-Eve was thrust into the spotlight as the Britain's Next Top Model's first ever transgender contestant.
The attention Talulah received while on the show did not go down well with her fellow contestants.
At the time, a source said: “The show is renowned for its cat fights.
"When you're already in a pressure cooker environment, feelings intensify and arguments break out.
“But since the line-up was been announced, the bitchiness and resentment towards Talulah-Eve, has reached another level.
"They're jealous of the success and barrage of headlines she's had.
“Quite a few of the girls had complained to the producers, about how they're not being given the same opportunities as her and how they feel side-lined on the show.”
She has also spoken about her love life, saying: "Me and men are a bit tricky. I have never had any luck in the romance department – I’ve been single my whole life!
"I’ve dated people, but no man has ever been brave enough to love me.
"I think that they’re often worried about what other people will think. Now that I have got a vagina, I want to have sex as a woman. I’m basically a virgin again!
"Now I just need to find a courageous man who is brave enough to take me on."
