A GYPSY girl has hit back at cruel trolls who have called her a "fake traveller" because she lives in a house and has been divorced.
The woman, known only as 'cousin Suzy' on TikTok, regularly shares glimpses of her life in the traveller community online.
But most recently, she responded to a mean remark from a keyboard warrior which read: "We call you a fake traveller. Lives in a house, being married – you're a complete fail."
In a clip shared to TikTok (@cuzinsuzy92), she responds in the best way possible and says: "First off, that's not very nice comment and I'm going to be completely respectful because that's how I am."
She then begins by addressing the "fake traveller comment" and hits back: "You know I'm not, I know I'm not…everyone on here knows I'm not.
"Just call me what you like, it's cool. Whatever makes you sleep at night, babe!"

Finally, she refers to the assumption that being married and getting a divorce means she's a complete "fail."

"Get what I'm saying? You can call me all the bad things you like, you're one person.
"I have over 160,000 people on here that follow me, that love me. But regardless, if they do, they don't, it doesn't really matter – all that matters is I'm me, and I love me!"
