Disgraced X-Factor NZ judge blasted for 'trolling'
AXED X Factor New Zealand judge Natalia Kills has been slammed for joking about her outburst that got her fired from the TV3 talent show.
Kills and her husband Willy Moon were kicked off the show last week after bullying contestant Joe Irvine and calling him a "doppelganger".
Kills, who was ruthless towards Irvine for copying her husband's look, has since faced claims that her own look isn't original.
Earlier today, Kills posted an Instagram photo of Dora the Explorer and in the caption repeated some of the comments that got her fired.
"Ladies and gentlemen, we have a doppelgänger in our midst. Dora, how dare you steal my look," Kills wrote in the caption about the popular children's character.
It didn't go down well with fans.
"Stop trolling," asked one fan.
"I swear theres something wrong with her," wrote another.
"Excuse me but Dora was way famous even before u. Just try to accept it and move along," wrote a third. "You really are pathetic."
Another commentator asked if Kills could be kicked off Instagram for the post.
Some fans saw a funny side to the comments.
"Ha! I love that you can laugh at yourself," wrote one.
Moon has since made his own joke about their controversial comments, posting this image on Twitter:
Kills and Moon were replaced by Shelton Woolright and Natalie Bassingthwaighte for the rest of the season.
