Chloe Brockett has shared a heartfelt plea on social media as she asked the "internet to be kinder" to her friend Joey Turner.
The TOWIE star, 21, stepped in to support her friend after he was cruelly slammed for being "too skinny".
Joey had been pictured on a night out in a swanky bar and was wearing a leopard-print onesie outfit that showcased his figure, among with a slew of other pictures showing his body on Instagram.
Sadly, the star has been inundated with shaming messages and criticism for his weight again, prompting Chloe to make an important message to her followers.
She brought it up during a Q&A on her Instagram stories.
Asked if she and Joey were still friends, Chloe insisted they were very close.
"Of course we are. He called me today," the Essex beauty shared.
"I love him very much, I wish the internet would be kinder to him. @joeyturnerrr."
It comes after Chloe hit back at followers who urged her to "help" Joey back in October.

While lots of people commenting their worry, Chloe insisted he was fine.
"It's his choice," she said at the time, saying in her full messaged: "What I’m a bit confused is as to why I’m constantly getting tagged in these pictures saying I should 'help' Joey.
"He is fine, he eats. I’ve spoken to him, I see him regularly, all these people preaching about 'help your friend' are also writing 'vile' and 'far too skinny!'"
The star continued her rant: "Sorry Karen from Blackpool, I forgot you see Joey regularly and know what his eating and how he is?
"Yet me, his friend, gets moaned at by complete strangers? Make it make sense.
"Joey is fine and we speak regularly. I understand he looks skinny, but that is his personal choice," Chloe added.
