Perth radio host Juelz Jarry hits out at troll who created fake Instagram accounts calling her trans

A radio host has hit back at a troll who created 25 Instagram profiles to call her transgender and overweight during an elaborate hate campaign.

Perth radio star Juelz Jarry endured almost two years of online bullying by a social media troll who created fake accounts to attack her appearance.

Each time she reported a fake account, another would appear half-an-hour later.

The Hit 92.9 breakfast host apologised to her Instagram followers on Friday and explained how 'exhausting' it was to constantly monitor the platform for fake accounts.

'I know I haven't posted in a little while but lately every time I post some loser keeps creating fake profiles to troll my account and monitoring it is f***ing exhausting,' she wrote.

'From my weight to how I look to saying I'm trans, none of this I worry about but I've also have never dealt with trolling before, it's annoying af and I just rather not to post than to have to continuously report and block.'

Ms Jarry believes the same person is behind all 25 fake accounts.

While she was adamant that she was not affected by most of the negative commentary, Jarry was upset by transgender comments calling her a 'lady boy' and claiming she and her co-host Pete Curulli look like 'brothers'.

'I've got cousins that are transgender, and I think I am really defensive of that because of the community, they cop a lot and that's one thing [the trolls] do keep targeting,' she said. 

'I think because they know it's something I have reacted to in the past.' 

Ms Jarry asked her fans not to interact with any fake accounts they come across because 'it only encourages them'.

She spoke out about the online bulling so that young people know trolling and bullying on social media is unacceptable.
