Lauren Murray has said she felt bullied by 4th Impact fans online after the alleged shoving incident in “The X Factor” UK 2015.
Supporters of the Filipino group took to Twitter to express their anger after seeing Murray somewhat shoving one of the members.
More than that, some of them reportedly tweeted Murray and gave some “vile messages.”
Murray said she was shocked how one small thing blew out of proportion, mentioning also 4th Impact’s dismay over the issue.
“Some of the stuff that people have been saying has been – I don’t know where people get it from,” Lauren Murray told RadioTimes.com via heatworld report.
Murray explained she was just supporting Che Chesterman and noted how the fans turned a positive into negative.
“I think more than anything it’s an eye-opener into how online bullying is so disgusting,” Murray said.
4th Impact has repeatedly tried stopping the online bashers from contacting Murray, saying the clip meant nothing negative.
On November 22, shortly after Murray received negative criticisms on Twitter, the girls posted a message at their account saying, “She’s one of their big sister.”

It followed another post of a selfie with Murray to prove that she was nice to them. 4th Impact also told their fans to “stop the hate.”

Reacting to the perceived “rude” behavior, a user said, “[Un]fortunately, actions can speak louder than words. Both deny friction, profess friendship, but spurs-of-the-moment speak volumes.”
“If you look closely at her mouth, i don’t think she said common Che. Something like i don’t like your hug….” another said.
On Monday, 4th Impact posted a group selfie with Lauren Murray, Louisa Johnson, Che Chesterman, and Reggie n Bollie. The girls said, “We miss u guys.”
