Ever since the end of Bachelor In Paradise, where Channel Ten announced that Ali Oetjen was going to be Australia's next Bachelorette, fans of the show have been slamming the network for its decision.
Not only that, they've also taken to Instagram to slam Ali herself, as she failed to comment after her Paradise beau Grant Kemp, accused her of cheating on him in his own home.
Now, in an interview with Stellar magazine, Ali has finally addressed the online bullies, saying that she knows there's not much she can do about it except push on.
"I just don’t think I have anything to prove to anyone. Everyone’s always going to have an opinion.
"I think people who throw out these comments [on social media and online], they actually don’t realise the damage they’re doing."
She explained that she has relied on her family for support and have kept her going throughout the lead up to her next TV stint.
"They are the most important people to me and their opinions matter. I have enough self-love and belief in who I am."
During the interview, Ali also explained why she's kept quiet during the Grant scandal and she simply put it down to keeping him out of the spotlight.
"My major reason for not saying anything is that I don’t want to give him any ammunition or any reason to keep coming back in the limelight, which is what he wants.
"He wants to keep on grabbing those headlines. It speaks volumes for who he is really."
Will Grant reappear to comment on this? Who knows...
