Love Island fans were left in shock after Jacques, 23, slammed the deaf dancer as "a liar" as he took to his social media on Monday.

The Islander – who walked out of the show after struggling to deal with his mental health – filmed himself watching the show finale.

As Tasha, 24, stood up to make a speech to partner Andrew Le Page to declare her love, he could be heard quoting Davide Sanclimenti.

"You are a liar, an actress, go the f**k out," he joked to a friend in the video, which was later leaked online by his following.

Fans turned on Jacques as the video circulated on social media, calling for him to "be kind" and consider Tasha's mental well-being.

Many went so far to claim that he was "bullying" his former co-star with the video, slamming him for his "misogynistic" behaviour.

Now, Tasha's best pal Tyreece has taken to social media to share his stance on the comments – calling him a "bully".

"No, because Jacques is a walking ick, red flag and a bully," the drag star wrote on his Instagram stories, alongside a shrugging emoji.

It comes as Jacques faced brutal backlash for the video, which saw him make the joke as she read her declaration of love to Andrew, 27.

One outraged person wrote: “He needs to be ‘cancelled.’ It’s enough already. This behaviour towards Tasha needs to be stamped out.”

A second commented: “SO GROSS. If it was just banter then he wouldn't have posted it on his private story.”

Jacques quit the Love Island villa the same week love rival Adam Collard entered after admitting he was struggling with his emotions.

He later revealed that during his time on the show he felt “the worst he ever had in his life” and wanted to "get back to his normal self".
