‘It was a cesspool of trolling’: Mike Gunner of Married At First Sight revealed his Instagram fan page had been shut down – as he responded to rumors he had created it himself
Beau Ryan of KIIS FM told Mike “the evidence against [him] doesn’t look great, âafter eagle-eyed fans noticed he was the first person to follow the suspicious account.
But Mike maintained that he had nothing to do with @team_mike_mafs.
‘It was put together by a friend of mine who was a little offended by the trolling [against me],’ he said. “She thought she would send me some support.”
Please explain! Mike was accused of setting up his own Instagram fan account (above) earlier this week, after several glaring clues were uncovered by detectives online.
When asked to explain why he was the first person to follow the account shortly after it was created, Mike had prepared an explanation.
He claimed his friend sent him a link to the fan account she created, and he felt obligated out of politeness to “follow back”.
“I wanted to see what people were saying,” he added, before admitting that the fan page finally turned on her after she “became a cesspool of trolling.”
The account has since been deleted.
