Too open about her sex life? She's ready to say no - harassment is harassment and it's unlawful."However one follower dismissively tweeted: "Well lets be honest, she has built her career on acting like this - how do you expect young lads to react?"Nina quickly hit back: "Within the law.There’s a start."A stream of Twitter users also rushed to Emily's defence, horrified to learn that she had been flooded with pornographic images and violent threats during the pandemic.@jarvo1912 echoed: "Absolutely ZERO excuse for the abuse she’s suffered!!
