Loose Women presenter Katie Piper has hit back at a viewer who claimed she had “lips full of botox” and a “designer face drawn” on social media. It comes after the author appeared on Sky News today to discuss her latest book.
The 37-year-old took to Twitter and shared a message she received from two social media users.
In view of her 292,000 followers, Katie penned: “Following my Sky News interview this morning, here’s a letter to those who feel like it’s ok to act like this online…”
The social media user named MicMox said: “Oh dear @KatiePiper. (Katie Piper who is she?)
“With lips full of botox and a designer face drawn by surgeons on the advertising platform @SkyNews promoting a publication about people needing to be honest with themselves.
“Couldn’t make it up, could you?”
Another social media user, Donald Wood, added: “What has she done to her face?”
In response, Katie fired back: “My face has been rebuilt by surgeons using other parts of my body after my face was melted down to the muscle and skeleton following an acid attack.
“But regardless, I don’t owe you pretty, perhaps use your time more productively than commenting on a women’s appearance on the internet.”
The mum-of-two has since published an open letter where she discussed in detail the impact the acid attack had on her.
In 2008, Katie was attacked with acid by an ex-boyfriend and an accomplice, causing major damage to her face and blindness in one eye.
In the candid letter, she began: “After my attack, I used to wear a plastic face mask for my burns, and a wig, because my hair was burnt at the front.
“When I first started going out (which took a really long time because I didn’t want to leave the house because of people’s reactions) men used to shout insults like this and other abuse at me.

“When someone writes something so awful and offensive about someone who is burnt and disfigured like me in the public eye, it makes those with visible differences at home not want to leave the house, like I never used to.”
Katie explained that online trolling will make people also undergoing similar problems “regress”.
She urged people to not make offensive remarks over another person’s appearance.
Katie said: “I didn’t bring this up because it has personally affected me today. My journey has been a long one, full of incredible ups and downs but I’m on the other side now.”
She added: “Why do women always get torn down about their appearance?
“The sad reality is I’m not surprised because this is so common now for me after a live appearance.”
