After sharing the screenshots on Twitter Talulah received an outpouring of support from fans who were horrified by the comments she had received.

A source close to Talulah told The Sun: "People can be so hateful and it can get quite ugly. She's used to being yelled at in the streets, even before she became famous.

"This acid threat has definitely knocked her for six. We've all seen how it's become something of a trend."

Talulah hit headlines by staring on Britain's Next Top Model, and in September she publicly announcing her plans to undergo a womb transplant and carry her own baby.
