Laura was forced to hit back at furious trolls on Friday after they accused her of ‘sexualising’ a post about ‘breast cancer prevention’.

The star took to Instagram to pose in a pink charity T-shirt as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October.

Yet despite having good intentions and trying to raise both awareness and money for breast cancer charities, Laura was accused by trolls of ‘sexualising’ her post as they asked why she had to flash her ‘underboob’ in the photo.  

Hitting back at the comments, Laura said: ‘I should be able to show underboob while talking about breast cancer prevention.’

Responding to one account who said she had ‘missed the mark’, the Scottish reality star exclaimed: ‘I’m a woman, I have boobs, they need checked, so do yours, here’s my post! I hope it helps someone.’ 

They had written: ‘Laura, I’m a 43 year old woman, not a troll. My eldest daughter is 16 and a huge Love Island fan. I follow you because I think you’re a fabulous role model for young girls and you always strike me as a thoroughly decent person. 

‘This had the potential to be an excellent post, but I’m not sure why you have sexualised it by having your underboobs on show. You could have made your point without doing this.  

‘You’re perfectly entitled to post whatever the hell you want, but this misses the mark for me. Sorry xx.’

To which Laura replied with: ‘This is the whole point! Boobs arnt sexual, I should be able to show underboob while talking about breast cancer prevention. Our minds are warped into automatically thinking oh boob that’s distasteful. 

‘I rest my case. I’m a woman, I have boobs, they need checked, so do yours, here’s my post! I hope it helps someone.’

WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR BREAST CANCER SCREENING AND HOW DOES IT WORK?

What is breast cancer screening?

Screening is a procedure which allows doctors to catch breast cancer while it is still in its infancy and therefore easier to treat.

It involves an X-ray test – known as a mammogram – to check for signs of cancer which are too small to see or feel.

The results of the mammogram will be sent to the women and her GP within two weeks. Around 5 per cent will be called back for further tests.

Who is eligible?

Any woman concerned that they might have breast cancer can see their GP and be referred for a screening.

But in recognition that the risk of getting breast cancer increases with age, all women aged between 50 and 70 who are registered with a GP should automatically be invited for screening every three years.

Women are first invited for screening between their 50th and 53rd birthday, although in some areas they are invited from age 47 as part of a trial.

How are they invited?

The screening process is overseen by Public Health England, which uses an IT system to send out invitations.

‘So Let’s wear our T-shirts proudly and hopefully bring light to anyone affected by breast cancer @hasanhejazi.’  

Laura added in the comments: ‘I’m overly aware our breasts are for feeding our offspring for those strangely offended. 

‘I like to point out the less obvious sometimes on here and ofcourse the point of my post is not relating our chest to sexual references instead remembering to check them. 

‘I stupidly thought the huge comparison would attract attention for an important cause and relate to my fellow females daily struggle of men ogling our assets. Half worked. Buy the t shirt ✌.’

Yet despite some followers hitting out at Laura, several fans were quick to praise the reality star and defend her.

One person said: ‘Love following you…such a strong, independent woman, using her platform for good.’ 

A different fan put: ‘SO so important, sadly so many of us totally forget to even consider having them checked or just don’t know what we’re checking for thanks for sharing beautiful ❤️.’ 

Another follower commented: ‘The point of this post was to promote women’s health and people have veered off topic.’ 

While a different user added: ‘Thank you – Laura you are doing a great job drawing attention to a very important issue ie #breastcancerawareness.’  

Yet despite the divisive comments surrounding her post, Laura took to her Instagram Story to admit she loves the ‘big opinions’ on her account.

She said: ‘Guys, my last post… well, I just love my Instagram sometimes all of you guys have such big opinions. I like, not arguing but debating on comments, getting annoyed then backing down, you guys having your input. 

‘It means we’ve got a brain and Instagram is not about just pretty pictures it’s about speaking as well, having an opinion and having a voice.’ 

Laura joins a collection of stars who have taken to Instagram to raise awareness of breast cancer prevention.
