The dating reality contestant has recently shared a video on Instagram stories last June of herself and her brother Marc holidaying in Dubai. She recorded a video of her brother and captioned it: “Uuuuuft who’s that big Harry hoofter on the cocktails??” attaching a rainbow flag emoji. Harry Hoofter is a negatively-conotated synonym of a gay man. She immediately came under fire for it among the social media users. “Strange Paige Turley is being allowed on Love Island when she has homophobic stories on her highlights on insta. Any explanation for this?” one Twitter user wrote. But there were also those who defended her and said she did not mean to hurt anybody. “This was a silly joke between brother and sister and Paige would be mortified to hear she has in anyway offended anyone,” one of her friends said.
