Gogglebox star Tom Malone Jr calls out troll for vile racist remark about girlfriend

By Katherine Heslop

Gogglebox star Tom Malone Jr has called out an online troll who made a vile racist remark about his girlfriend.

Tom, whose family has appeared on the hit show since 2014, has spoken in the past about the racist abuse he and his girlfriend Bryony have received, and called out another troll today, telling them "It's 2022".

On his InstaStory the dancer shared a screenshot of the disgusting message, and then wrote: "Another morning another racist troll," before reminding them "It's 2022".

In a post on his Instagram today, Tom shared a picture of the happy couple, writing in the caption: "They say there's no such thing as a stupid question... the second slide proves that statement to be false... and the third slide is the answer," followed by a thumbs up emoji.

He then wrote: "In 2022 you'd think we'd be past this nonsense."

In a second photo from the post, Tom shared a screenshot of someone asking on Twitter : "Do you support interracial marriage?", and a third snap showed the pair giving the thumbs up.

In May last year, Tom opened up about the racist abuse he received online for supporting the Black Lives Matter movement.

The TV star attended a Black Lives Matter protest in Manchester as a first date with Bryony.

He told BBC News: Because they know that we advocate for the Black Lives Matter movement, and for equality, we get people who make new troll accounts [just to troll us].

"And it’s just abuse after abuse."

Bryony confessed it isn't the first time she's "heard it".

"When we’re working so hard to make the world a better place, it’s just boring when you’ve got the same people, saying the same things that were said 50, 100 years ago," she added.

After George Floyd was killed by a police officer in Minneapolis in May 2020, the world took to the streets to protest.

Some social media users appeared less than pleased when Tom and his girlfriend joined the important demonstrations and chose to leave racist abuse in his DMs.

"For people who were obviously opposed to that, their easiest way to hit back at what we stood for and target the fact that she’s obviously mixed race and has heritage on both sides," he previously told The Sun.

"It’s a lot, even now we still get it. It’s not just her as well, we get it a lot as a couple."

He said: "It was more of a shock how strong it was and how persistent people were.

"People would make one fake account and you’d block it and then another one pops up, it’s clearly the same person with fake pictures and stuff."

Tom and Bryony have been dating since June 2020 after meeting through mutual friends.
