Love Island star Kaz Kamwi’s family hit back at trolls sending ‘vulgar racist abuse’

Love Island’s Kaz Kamwi has been receiving ‘vulgar racist abuse’ on her Instagram account, her family have revealed.

A note appeared on her stories on Thursday, written by her loved ones, hitting back at those attacking the reality personality while she is oblivious inside the villa in Majorca.

Kaz – who is currently immersed in a love triangle with Matt and Tyler in the villa, despite Tyler’s terrible treatment of her after Casa Amor – has entrusted her family with looking after her social media while she’s on the show.

They posted: ‘Morning guys. Kaz’s family and friends here. We understand that a lot of you love watching the show and that people will have differing opinions.

‘However, this does not excuse the vulgar racist abuse we have been receiving on her account!’

They ended things with: ‘Please remember to always #bekind’

The message failed to elaborate further – but Kaz has been caught up in drama on the show in the past week, perhaps prompting the terrible abuse.

Things got heated on Wednesday’s episode of Love Island as Clarisse had an argument with Tyler about his feelings for Kaz.

Tyler admitted to Kaz he still had feelings for her, to which she said the door for their potential romance is ‘open’.

However, Tyler drew the ire of Clarisse when he told her the this, prompting her to tell him she wished he hadn’t brought her back from Casa Amor.

During his conversation with Kaz, Tyler said: ‘Do you feel is the door still open?’ She replied: ‘Door is open, it’s like a crack.’

Tyler asked: ‘What’s keeping it open?’ ‘The little feelings I have,’ Kaz replied.

Tyler then admitted: ‘I want you back. I miss how we used to be.’

Kaz said: ‘Thank you for letting me know. It’s up to you too open that door. I’m going to keep getting to know him [Matt]. Are you up for the challenge? You’re quiet competitive.’

Speaking to Clarisse after, Tyler said: ‘I can’t just turn my feelings off for Kaz.’ Unimpressed, Clarisse said: ‘Yeah, I knew it.’

Tyler said: ‘I had a chat with her, nothing happened, I didn’t kiss her. I just said it’s her. You’re still an amazing individual.’

Clarisse responded: ‘I can’t lie, I don’t even want to have this conversation. I knew this was going to happen.’

Tyler said: ‘We see each other in the corridor and locking eyes and smiling.’

Clarisse asked: ‘Why are you still kissing me, hugging me, being next to me?’

Tyler replied: ‘I can’t really put time stamps on it. I still wanted to get to knw you fully. I just can’t shake that feeling with her.’

Clarisse admitted she wished Tyler hadn’t coupled up with her, saying: ‘It’s cool. I just wish you didn’t bring me back here. I could be at home right now.’

Tyler replied: ‘I find you attractive.’

Clarisse then stood and stormed off, saying: ‘I don’t give a f**k. You do your thing, enjoy yourself.’ 

After the heated chat with Clarisse, Tyler then went to Matt, who Kaz is currently coupled up with, to tell him about his feelings.

He said: ‘I’m sorry if she [Kaz] hasn’t come to you first and said this cos maybe it should be her but she said the door is still open, like minuscule.

Matt said: ‘It is what it is. I’m happy for her to get to know whoever. There’s no pressure on me either way.’ 

Matt then went to speak with Kaz and admitted he wasn’t happy to hear she still had feelings for Tyler from him, rather than her.

He said: ‘I think you should have told me first to be honest. Being told through Tyler is not ideal.’

Kaz replied: ‘I didn’t purposefully say I’m going to leave Matt in the dark. You told me things aren’t that deep between us Matt’

Matt said: ‘I said it’s early days. You know what, I need to cool down cos you’re p*****g me off.’

Kaz was then heard saying to herself: ‘I don’t know what to do.’

Love Island will continue on Thursday at 9pm on ITV2 and the ITV Hub.
