‘How is this s**t still allowed?’ Emily Atack is horrified as she reveals she’s been harassed by sick troll’s sexually explicit messages every day
Emily Atack was left horrified on Monday after being targeted once again by a troll’s sexually explicit messages.
The actress, 32, took to her Instagram Stories to share the slew of messages she has received from an individual and has called on the social media giant for help.
The Celebrity Juice team captain, who recently backed a campaign to make cyber flashing a crime, screen-grabbed the array of vile comments and told how she was ‘harassed everyday’ by the same person.

Emily has previously taken to her social media to tell followers how she has been bombarded with inappropriate messages for some time now.
Proving that it’s ongoing, she took to her 1.8 million fans and wrote: ‘How is this s**t still allowed?
‘How do we make this illegal? This is a platform where children could easily receive this abuse.

‘I am harassed everyday by this man. I block and block, and he creates new accounts and gets into my private messages. Everyday.’
The blonde beauty then called on Instagram bosses to change their social media policy as she added: ‘Sort it out.’
After uploading the third screenshot of horrific content, she added: ‘Abuse that no one is talking about.’
Emily has previously detailed the extent of the unsolicited sexual videos and images in her messages.
In an interview with The Sun, she explained: ‘I’ve developed quite a thick skin. But when I started getting actual rape threats, and felt my safety was in jeopardy, it became too much.’

Emily who was forced to move out of her old home abruptly after receiving messages from stalkers, revealed how she is trolled by a man who keep creating new accounts.
She said: ‘He sends rape threats, says what he wants to do to me while his wife is in the room, and sends messages saying his children are downstairs in their playroom while he’s pleasuring himself over me.
The Celebrity Juice star continued: ‘These men are exposing themselves to me, doing this, in a more private way, in my direct messages, where I can’t avoid it. It feels shameful.’
She added that due to posing in lads mags and speaking openly about her sex life, it led some people to believe that treating her in this way was ok.
Emily has called for social media platforms to clamp down on the abuse and has defiantly hit back at cruel trolls in the past.
Last month, Emily shed light on the impact trolling has taken on her, going so far as to say sexually explicit messages make her question ‘who she is and why she’s single.’
The actress said she is witness to ‘about ten penises I have not asked to see before breakfast’, after being admitting she can be inundated with hundreds of unsolicited pictures every day.
Emily opened up on a podcast about the effect the disgusting messages have had on her mental health.
Speaking in to the Plot Twist Podcast, she said: ‘It can drive you crazy. It’s not just seeing their picture and thinking, ‘I don’t want to see your hairy b******k, thanks.’
‘If it was just that, I would get over it really quickly as I have seen lots of horrible hairy b******ks in my life. It’s not normal, is it? People don’t realise the harm [it can cause] and the triggering it can spark – where else you take it in your mind.’
