Rachel Gorry opens up on the Late Late about constant trolling online; “It took my breath away”

Rachel Gorry appeared on the Late Late show yesterday evening and opened up about the constant trolling she has received online. The Irish influencer’s husband, Daniel, sadly passed away in April of 2020, at the age of 29 after being diagnosed with oesophageal cancer.

Since then, the mother-of-three has been accused of ‘cashing in’ on her husband’s death and whilst on the show she spoke about some of the awful messages she has had to deal with in the past year.

Speaking about it she said “And then the trolls start” in reference to how honest she was speaking about his passing, “sometimes I think I was a bit too honest when I look back..”

Continuing she said; “But I was really honest. My page blew up and the followers were amazing really and how quick it went up. So with that, you’re going to get the trolls and you’re going to get really nasty messages which I did.”

Revealing one incident in particular, when her husband was on his deathbed, she said; “One lady messaged me and said, ‘I’m praying’, I said, ‘Thank you so much’.”

“She said, ‘I’m praying that you die. Go kill yourself’.”

“All this crazy stuff. That was kind of my first trolling. It took my breath away. I couldn’t believe that. You hear about trolling and you kind of don’t think anything of it until you’re on the other end.”

Earlier this year Rachel revealed some amazing news relating to the fundraiser she set up to mark her late husband’s one year anniversary.

To honour her husband Daniel, she set up a fundraiser in order to raise money for the oncology ward in Tullamore Hospital and the Oesophageal Cancer Charity.

Sharing the news on Instagram at the time, Rachel wrote, “Daniels 1 year anniversary is coming up on the 1st April Since Daniel passed I have wanted to do a fundraiser in his honour but never felt I had the strength to do so until now.”

“The care Daniel received from all the amazing nurses and doctors was incredible and they showed so much kindness to my family throughout it all. I could never thank them enough for that.

“So I am hoping to raise money for the oncology ward in Tullamore Hospital and the Oesophageal Cancer Charity.”

The initial target was to raise €5,000 but over €135,000 has now been donated.
