James Haskell, the former rugby player, has hit back at online trolls on Instagram, expressing his indifference towards their negative comments. In an interview prior to announcing the end of his five-year marriage to Chloe, he dismissed the criticisms directed at him and stated that he feels sorry for those who engage in such behavior. Unlike his ex-wife, James doesn't let the trolls bother him and simply deletes any unwanted interactions.
During the interview on Unfiltered, Haskell compared the online trolls to "a blue bottle buzzing at a window," emphasizing that their noise doesn't make a difference to him. He also explained that he doesn't see any validity in their comments and admires Chloe's ability to articulate and shut them down. While Chloe's followers had tagged her in photos of Haskell surrounded by bikini-clad women in Ibiza, he refused to stop posting such images as it is integral to his DJ "brand."
Furthermore, James revealed his decision to stop blocking people on social media, as he realized that every interaction, including negative ones, can earn money. This revelation further reinforced his nonchalant attitude towards online trolls and criticism.
Interestingly, Chloe had previously expressed her embarrassment over the photos of James with scantily clad women. During their reality show, she mentioned feeling uncomfortable when strangers pitied her, assuming she was affected by her husband's actions. However, James dismissed her concerns, stating that she should not let the opinions of others affect her.
Despite attending couples therapy in an effort to save their marriage, James and Chloe ended up parting ways. They issued a joint statement on their Instagram accounts, explaining that they had decided to separate at the end of September to focus on their daughter and co-parent amicably.
It appears that James Haskell has chosen not to let the criticism and negativity of others affect him, instead preferring to prioritize his happiness and professional aspirations.
