Rosie Jones has once again hit out at ‘ableist’ trolls following her latest TV appearance on The Big Fat Quiz of the Year.

The comedian, 33, appeared on the panel of the annual Channel 4 game show alongside the likes of Katherine Ryan, Mo Gilligan, Richard Ayoade and Mel Giedroyc.

But Rosie – who has cerebral palsy – was cruelly trolled after the episode aired on Boxing Day and she took to social media to hit out at the ‘ableist’ comments.

In a post shared to X – formerly known as Twitter – Rosie re-shared a tweet from just weeks before when she had addressed being trolled after the Royal Variety Performance.

Of her most recent TV appearance, she wrote: ‘Rinse and repeat. Different telly show, same old ableism.

‘Thanks for the support, but I’m gonna lie low for a bit and sink into the perineum of Christmas and New Year.’

Fans were quick to share their support with the star as one wrote: ‘You were fab on both shows!!’

While another commented: ‘I thought you were brilliant. Keep going,’ and a third added: ‘Sorry to hear this Rosie – keep your spirits up although I know it’s hard to do so – wishing you all the best.’

It is not the first time Rosie has spoken about being trolled as she hit out at cruel comments following her stand-up comedy gig at the Royal Variety Performance.

She was part of the star-studded line-up alongside the likes of Hannah Waddingham and Bradley Walsh, but was on the receiving end of trolling over her performance.

However, Rosie took to social media to hit back at the criticism as she accused the trolls of ‘ableism’ and insisted that she doesn’t want to hear what they have to say.

She wrote: ‘Thank you for all of the lovely messages about The Royal Variety last night, what fun. Less of a thanks to the not so lovely ones. 

‘Comedy is subjective and it’s ok if I’m not your cup of tea. But please remember the difference between personal preference and downright ableism.’

She also took to Instagram to share an impassioned video where she once again hit back at the cruel trolling and vowed that it is not going to stop her in her career.

‘So I was on the Royal Variety last night I just want to make something clear, if you want to write to me to tell me that I’m not funny, don’t, because I don’t care,’ she said.

‘If you want to say that I’m too disabled to be on telly or you can’t understand me, don’t bother, because again, I don’t care and I’m going to carry on being on your screen with my big disabled voice.’

The comments section of her post was flooded with kind messages from her 139,000 followers as they shared their support.

One wrote: ‘You are funny, and strong, and a legend! And I bet you’re a hell of a lot funnier and better company than whoever sends those negative nasty comments.’

Another said: ‘Spot on Rosie, if people don’t like you or find you funny, that’s their problem, you’re lovely and hysterical.’

A third wrote: ‘National Treasure and People’s Princess @josierones you are FABULOUS and we love you.’

Another added: ‘You’re hilarious and seriously talented. Thank you for all you do for the disabled community as a side effect of what you do.’

Other fans also shared their excitement for her upcoming six-episode sitcom, which she is writing and starring in for Channel 4.

Disability Benefits will see Rosie star as Emily, who starts her own illegal drugs empire after her state benefits are cut when she is made redundant. 

Rosie said of the project: ‘I am incredibly excited to be making Disability Benefits for Channel 4. It has always been my dream to have my own sitcom and now it is coming true! Bring it on!!’

Earlier this year, Rosie also released a documentary called Am I a R*tard? and defended its controversial title as she discussed the abuse she has received.

The documentary aimed to explore and educate viewers on the online abuse faced by those with disabilities, including Rosie.

However it then emerged that a number of disabled contributors were withdrawing from the documentary fronted by Rosie as they claimed its title was ‘damaging’. 

But Rosie defended her use of the title and said although the word was ‘abhorrent’, she ‘wanted to tackle the subject head on’.

Appearing on This Morning, Rosie said: ‘I needed to stay true to my lived experience which is I get that word thrown at me online and in the street on a regular basis.’

She explained: ‘Every single day, I receive ableist comments online, ableism in the street and no one knows about that.

‘Therefore no one, I felt, was taking that seriously, so I really felt passionate about getting my truth out there because if we start the conversation about albeism and slurs, then we can start to start really stop it.’

She said she feels ‘attacked’ from different avenues, saying: ‘It really needs to stop.’

Dermot went on to question Rosie about the title, with the star saying: ‘Well I understand that a lot of people have found the title to be very upsetting. And I get why. 

‘I find that word absolutely abhorrent. And when I get criticised from my own community it hits harder but this is my documentary.

‘I really feel that people use that slur and other ableist slurs casually in schools, in pubs, online, on the street, without really ever considering how damaging it is.

‘As a presenter and a producer, I really felt passionate about putting that word into the title because for me, sometimes you need to tackle a subject head on to really talk about it. and we are.

‘It was my hope that by putting it into the title and really tackling it in the film, we can stop that kind of language.’
