Emily Atack has criticised men sending her inappropriate messages as 'perverts'.
The former Inbetweeners actor began getting bombarded with messages on social media after a photo of her began circulating on adult film websites.
A picture of Atack sitting in the back of a taxi was posted a porn production company along with the caption: "Looks like Charlotte from the Inbetweeners has had quite a dramatic career change."
On her Instagram story, Atack shared a screenshot of the tweet with the caption: "Excellent, No really that’s great. Trying to have a wholesome Sunday and I’m being bombarded with perverts asking if I’d like to accidentally take a wrong turn into the woods."
Atack then directly addressed those sending her messages: "Go iron your kids school uniforms you p*****."
The Celebrity Juice star has previously been open about the social media abuse she receives and the impact it has had on her mental health.
Atack said: "I’ve received countless levels of online abuse but increasingly, it has become very sexualised. I receive hundreds of sexually motivated messages – from rape threats, to men telling me exactly what they’re going to do to me in the most brutal and misogynistic ways."
Atack has also called for harsher penalties on those who commit online abuse and harass women on social media.
She has also discussed being the victim of cyber-flashing: "Before breakfast, I’ve seen about ten penises I have not asked to see."
Atack has supported efforts to make cyber-flashing a criminal offence which it will soon be once the Online Harms Bill passes through parliament.
The bill was originally announced in 2019 with the aim to target the distribution of harmful content online. The bill has since been expanded to include making it illegal to send unsolicited pictures and videos on social media.
Tech companies such as Twitter and Meta will also have to be more vigilant in stopping and reporting those sending unsolicited images.
