Author Dawn, 41, who has been mourning the loss of her friend Caroline, took to Twitter on Wednesday to say Caroline would have “absolutely hated” that messages between herself and anyone else have been posted.
Dawn wrote: “Can we all just agree that posting Caroline's personal texts is a massive betrayal?
“Please consider that if for some reason you are thinking of doing it. She'd absolutely hate it.”

Several of Dawn’s followers agreed with the statement, with mental health advocate Matt Haig writing: “Should be a given. But some people have no moral compass.”
Another fan of the author wrote: “I thought exactly the same thing. It’s so disrespectful she would’t have wanted that at all… and it’s hurting others.”
Rugby star Danny, 32, revealed on Wednesday that he was quitting social media for Lent before sharing messages he had exchanged Caroline.
In a screen grab of their WhatsApp conversation, Caroline says: “Hello [smiley face] Black dot. I’m ok. How you?”
To which he replied: “Haha. You look gorgeous in your pic. I’m well. Navigating my way through an industry which has never suited me. But… I’m still being great. Why you just ok? Want you smiling.”
Caroline then responded: “Well got court case coming up.”
Danny wrote alongside the messages, shared with his 262,000 Instagram followers: “Black dot. Before i start. This is my grieving process. Which is talking. A lot. Which my friends and family and teammates have had to take this last 10 days because I’m grieving. And I’m grieving hard. Hence I’m talking a lot.

“I’m not sure I’d be strong enough if I didn’t understand or see myself in her. Pain is pain. It doesn’t matter if you’ve lost a cat. Or been called a name. No ones pain is worse or less. Because it is individual to them and how they take it. So… Black dot.
“If you judge the first pic you see a black dot. But i didn’t really know what she meant when she called me black dot. Until her best friend told me on Sunday last week. ‘She used to call you black dot, now i know, your WhatsApp pic is a black dot’ – so i changed my WhatsApp pic to a black dot about 5 months ago because i felt there were people who had my number who i couldn’t trust.”
Danny then added: “This story is about the beauty she found in a situation i found uncomfortable. ‘I’m just talking to black dot’ she would say. She was kind beyond belief. And she would think i am crazy doing all this. But i know she would be proud.”
