Former host of the British hit reality show Love Island, Caroline Flack was found dead on February 15, having taken her own life as confirmed by her family, reported CNN. 

The TV presenter was hounded by the British press after being hit with accusations of domestic violence against her boyfriend, Lewis  Burton in December 2019, which they both categorically denied.

Following this, Flack was dropped from her long-time hosting gig on Love Island and torn apart by tabloids relentlessly.

After the news of her suicide broke last night, many people took direct aim at the 'toxic' British press and journalists for driving her to take this extreme step, and also blamed social media for 'demonising' her before her trial.

Many also lauded Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for taking a 'wise' decision and moving away in time. 'Meghan' was also trending alongside 'Caroline Flack' on Twitter.

A number of celebrities also directly called out the media for their mishandling of the case and insensitivity, including Niall Horan, former member of One Direction, and Jameela Jamil.

Here's hoping that Caroline eventually finds peace now, away from the negative reporting.
