GOGGLEBOX'S Tom Malone was forced to hit back at racist trolls AGAIN as his model girlfriend Bryony Briscoe was cruelly targeted.
The 26-year-old told fans racism is still "a massive issue" after receiving another vile comment about his stunning partner on his Instagram.
Tom – who appears on the Channel 4 show with his family – shared a photo of him posing by himself.
But he took to Twitter to reveal a vile troll spouted racist abuse on that pic.
Sharing the screenshot, the comment read: "Where's ya bird.???" alongside monkey emojis.
Tom told his followers: This happened minutes ago… 2020. Racism is a massive issue in the UK whether you want to admit it or not."
He added: "A lot of people are trying to brush this off as someone that's "jealous". I know you guys mean well but that's just belittling the issue.
"The issue here is blatant racism… not jealousy. Most people who get jealous resort to unfollowing me… not racial abuse."
Bryony retweeted her boyfriend's post, saying: "I am tired. Imagine being racially abused in a post that doesn't even have my face in it. How can these people be BOTHERED."
Tom and Bryony started dating in June after meeting through mutual friends.
But this isn't the first time the couple have been targeted by racist abuse.
Posting a video to his popular TikTok page in August, Tom referenced a dance routine he and his girlfriend Bryony Briscoe had previously uploaded – and the disgusting comment that was left underneath it.
Tom told his fans: "So, not long ago I posted a video on TikTok of me and my girlfriend just having fun; some people said I was punching.
"It was to 'Do you see what I done' – that song, me and my girlfriend just dancing – I've got a peng girlfriend.
"So tell me why someone feels the need, in 2020, to comment this."
Tom added a note saying "my girlfriend is mixed race", before sharing the message, which read: "It's illegal to own them these days".
The star continued: "We are in 2020, people still want to be racist. People say that racism is done, it's not – look at this stupidness.
"You're clearly not an evolved human being, look at that.
"Report the comment, report the profiles, get this gone. TikTok is supposed to be a platform for people to have fun, dance, enjoy themselves – and you've got people saying stuff like this.
"Report it all, get it gone. Black Lives Matter."
Tom shot to fame alongside his family, the Malones, on hit series Gogglebox back in 2014, with he and Bryony's relationship going public earlier this year.
