CRUEL trolls have taunted a McDonald’s superfan who won free meals for a year, saying he should stop eating fast food.
Connie Bulloch, 24, just got one of 1,000 VIP Gold Card Monopoly pieces she bought at McDonald’s in Hamilton, South Lanarkshire.
The ultra-rare Shiny card sent to her via First Class Post means she can enjoy a free moderate meal each week for an entire year – but she faces brutal abuse from trolls after sharing the exciting news fell.
A TikTok video of her showing off her award and mocking her “diet is delayed until September 2022” has garnered over four million views.
But less than 24 hours later, she was forced to post another to shame abusers who criticized her weight and lip fillers.
The video posted yesterday describes how she has been shamed by being “built like a house” and it shows another user begging, “Give [the card] To me, it sounds like you need to lose a few pounds.”
The 24-year-old claims abuse has curtailed her victories three weeks ago and admits it has upset her.
Connie, from Glasgow, Lanarkshire, said: “I thought it wouldn’t be a big deal because there would be so many of them, but I was buzzing when I saw it was one of the top prizes and there were only 1,000 .
“People were offering to buy it from me and I felt like I was at Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
“There have been so many good comments but the negative ones have really taken a toll on me and affected things.
“I’m a normal person. I struggle with my weight and always feel like I’m on some kind of diet but obviously everyone needs treatment.
“This time I obviously won a bigger prize, so people overheard me shamefully and made fun of me for my lips, which made me upset.
“I can take it but it just makes you think that very young people are getting this kind of abuse and how it should affect them.”
Connie’s winning Monopoly piece was stuck on her big fry and she only realized how rare it was after coming home and what it meant.
On the original video, which has since been taken down by TikTok, a troll said: “Give it to me. Looks like you need to lose a few pounds.”
LOVE NOT IT
Another said: “There’s no doubt you’re that size.”
Another troll said: “It’s the last thing you need.”
The 24-year-old’s post, slamming back at trolls, has garnered over 30,000 views and is titled, “Have mercy on everyone. You can get someone on the wrong day!”
More than 80 users have commented on the video to offer support, claiming that trolls can enjoy McDonald’s Kony for a full year free.
Jessica Berry Rose commented: “You’re beautiful, it’s just jealousy.”
Connie replied: “Thanks. Honestly, it’s only a handful of people but it gets you thinking.”
Chris Penny said: “Well, you have the VIP card and the trollers don’t. Well done. Sorry for those comments.”
Yasemin Ally Ellinor said: “You look beautiful and don’t feel like you’re made like a house.
“Some people just like to be mean with other people’s happiness.”
