Eve Betts, Alopecian and Former Reality TV Star, faces online abuse

Alopecian, Eve Betts, a reality TV contestant from the show First Dates from 2007 says she receives abuse and sexually explicit material over social media.

Eve shared, "I get a lot of death threats. People saying that I should just die because of the way that I look." Her decision to remove her wig on camera during the show made her a target for hurtful comments about her appearance.

"My experience with online abuse has been distressing," she added. "The barrage of hateful messages, threats, and explicit content really is not pleasant."
