Sacked X Factor judge Natalie Kills tells of death threats

NATALIE Kills bullied an X Factor contestant - but the former X Factor judge says she's been bullied herself, including death threats and racial abuse, since leaving the show.

Kills and her husband Willy Moon were axed from The X Factor NZ after abusing contestant Joe Irvine, comparing him to a fictional serial killer and accusing him from copying Moon's image.

The pair quickly left the country and, apart from a brief apology on Twitter to Irvine, have remained mostly quiet.

But this morning Kills spent time re-posting offensive tweets, including racial abuse and death threats, she'd received since her sacking.

Most are unrepeatable, with Kills replying to abusive messages sarcastically with lines like, "Thank you to all my fans who sent loving messages to me yesterday ..."

Her latest tweet, posted with a message that calls her a "sociopathic b****", reads: "I'm not a victim, I refuse to be one. I'm not afraid to hold a mirror up to death & rape threats, homophobia + racism".

Meanwhile, Moon says he will never go near a reality show again after being sacked as a judge on The X Factor NZ.

Moon took to Twitter to slay the X Factor format in an x-rated rant that began with: "My plan for the next year is to make better life choices ie. never go near a f***ing reality TV show ever again."

Simon Cowell, the creator of X Factor, recently addressed the incident in an interview with the Daily Mail, saying Kills' comments to Irvine were "hateful".

"She sounded mad. It didn't even make sense," he said.

"Where they cocked up was that they didn't apologise straight away. If they'd both been genuinely sorry and called me, and apologised to the guy and his family, who knows what could have happened? They didn't. They were quite defensive."

Kills also re-posted her apology to Irvine this morning.
