Cruel trolls mock McDonald's superfan after she won free meals for a year

A lucky McDonald's lover who won free meals for a year was mocked by a number of 'jealous' trolls on social media who made fun of her weight and suggested she needed a break from fast food. 

Connie Bulloch, 24, felt 'like she was in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' when found one of only 1,000 Vip Gold Card Monopoly pieces stuck to her meal bought at McDonald's in Hamilton, South Lanarkshire, on August 29.

The ultra-rare shiny card sent to her via first class post means she can enjoy one free medium meal each week for a whole year, but after sharing the exciting news she faced 'cruel' abuse from trolls.

A TikTok video of her showing off her prize and joking her 'diet is delayed until September 2022' has been viewed more than four million times, but less than 24 hours later she was compelled to post another to shame abusers who criticised her weight and lip fillers.

The video posted yesterday explains how she's been shamed as being 'built like a house' and it shows another user even begging, 'give [the card] to me, it looks like you need to lose a few pounds'.

Connie, from Glasgow, Lanarkshire, claims the abuse has 'put a dampener' on her win three weeks ago and admits it has upset her despite her being able to 'take it'.

'There were people offering to buy it from me and I felt like I was in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

'I'm a normal person. I have struggles with my weight and always feel like I'm on some sort of diet but obviously everyone needs a treat.

'This time I obviously won a great prize so hearing people fat shaming me then making fun of me for my lips did upset me.

'I can take it but it just makes you think that there are much younger people getting this kind of abuse and how it must affect them.'

Connie's winning Monopoly piece was stuck to her large fries and she only realised how rare it was once she got home and Googled what it meant.

On the original video, which has since been removed by TikTok, One troll said: 'Give it to me. It looks like you need to lose a few pounds or so.'

Another said: 'No doubt you're that size.'

Another troll said: 'That's the last thing you need chubs.'

The 24-year-old's post slapping back at the trolls has been viewed more than 30,000 times and is titled with the caption, 'be kind everyone. You could get someone on the wrong day!'

More than 80 users have commented on the video to offer support, claiming the trolls are just jealous of the free McDonald's Connie can enjoy for a full year.

Jessica Berry Rose commented: 'You're beautiful, It's just jealousy.'

Connie replied: 'Thank you. Honestly it's only a handful amount of people but it does make you think.'

Yasemin Ally Ellinor added: 'You look lovely and don't look like you're built like a house at all.

'Some people just like to be mean with other people's joy.'

Less than 24 hours after Connie uploaded a video showing off her win, she was compelled to post another to shame abusers who criticised her weight and lip fillers and shared a number of the hurtful comments left by trolls
