Olivia Frazer deactivated her Instagram this week after claiming online trolls had made her life miserable.
And now Bronte Schofield, 28, from season 10 of MAFS, has stepped up to slam the bullies who have been hounding Olivia, 30, over the past two years.
Posting to her Instagram, Bronte called Olivia’s online attacker’s ‘disgusting’ and ‘out of control’.
She also made reference to Olivia’s notorious feud with Domenica Calarco, and implied that fans saw a manipulated version of reality.
‘The amount of hate I have seen towards an individual [Olivia] after a highly edited and manipulated show is like nothing I’ve ever seen before. It is out of control,’ she said.

Bronte also made it clear she will ban any trolls from her own social media.
‘You aren’t a hero for commenting on someone’s post with such hatred; you’re a straight-up loser; anyone who comes for me for anything Liv did will be straight-up blocked.
‘Stop seeking validation at the expense of someone’s mental health. It’s disgusting.’
In another post to her stories Bronte continued to defend Olivia.
‘Its always the people who hide behind fake accounts and their keyboards who have the most to say.
‘I’d like to see you make a mistake on national television and then have it used against you for years to come just as you are starting to feel and then have people tell you to get over it when you get upset.
‘Not to mention tell you to get over the whole traumatic experience in general but keep an eye on your every move because you’re so ”irrelevant”. Ok.’

It comes after Olivia broke into tears after receiving an onslaught of online abuse earlier this week.
The Married At First Sight star shared a number of cruel comments from trolls to her Instagram Stories before weeping in a series of videos.
‘Honestly, honestly I’m so f***ing sick of having to defend myself,’ the 30-year-old said tearfully.
‘It’s two years later, I’ve put in so much work for people to see that the show was not me. And I’m just really sick of it.
‘I just want to not feel like s**t for once. I want to go public and not feel apologetic like I’ve done something wrong all the time,’ she continued.

‘I’m just so sick of having to be on the defensive all the time. I really miss the life where I could just walk down the street and not feel judged. I’m really missing my old life,’ she added.
Olivia advised people to be ‘nicer on the internet’ because, ‘it really does affect people and it shouldn’t’.
‘And I know people are going to message me and be like, be tough, don’t let them win. But like sometimes they just f***ing do,’ she cried.
The former reality star said she felt, ’embarrassed because I’ve cried on the internet and I promised I would never cry in public again after MAFS’.
‘I’ve been dealing with it for two years, just haters hating me all the f***ing time and it’s just like it piles on,’ Olivia sobbed.
Olivia earlier admitted appearing on the Channel Nine dating show has ruined her career.

The former TV bride expressed her distress over the irreversible damage caused by her portrayal on the show.
Before becoming a reality TV star, Olivia was working as an admin assistant for the English department at one of Australia’s most prestigious schools.
This role, she believed, was setting her up for a promising future in education.
However, the dream job she had nearly secured before getting her teaching license was jeopardised by her stint on the show in 2022.
