Today FM's Pamela Joyce in tears after trolls send abusive letter
"If you don’t like the show, if you don’t like how I do my job, that is fine, you don’t have to listen.”
Today FM DJ Pamela Joyce has shared her dismay after receiving a hateful letter from trolls.
Pamela took to her Instagram stories to share her reaction to the letter, which says that it's from "nine former listeners".
The vicious, hand-written letter insults her appearance and says: "No surprise you are single. Any man in his right mind would run a mile from you and keep running."
Pamela posted a video of herself crying in her car earlier today and urged her followers to be kind.
She said: "If you don’t like the show, if you don’t like how I do my job, that is fine, you don’t have to listen.”
“You don’t have to take a piece of paper and write down how much you hate me and send it to me. But who are you to comment on how I look? It’s none of your business how I look, how I live my life, what I do."
She went on: “I just can’t believe there are people that mean in the world. I would like to believe that 95% of people in the world are nice people and they wouldn’t do something like that, but if there’s something that you don’t like about someone, you don’t have to tell them. You don’t gain anything by telling them.”
Pamela then urged her followers to be kind.
She said: “Just practice niceness, practice kindness, and to the person who wrote that letter, you’ve really nice handwriting. So that’s your saving grace, that’s your redeeming quality, your handwriting is stunning.”
Pamela also thanked everyone who reached out to her with support.
She then joked that she would form a girl band called "nine former listeners."
She said: "We're all going to be fat, we're all going to wear crop tops and we're all going to jiggle our bellies around the place. And we're all going to slouch all the time, and we're all going to be single and all we'll do is play PlayStation."
Pamela added: "We're going to top the charts, baby!"
