She’s acquired a major quantity of on-line hate, particularly on Twitter. Fans lash out at her about every part. Ranging from how she treats different crew members to her relationship with chef Adam Glick. A small sampling of angry tweets consists of, “She has nothing good to say about ANYBODY and her mean girl antics with Adam are disgusting.”

Also, “Get a grip. You’re TERRIBLE at your job. Worst chief stew ever. And that includes Adrienne season 1 Below Deck.”

MacGillivray is being slightly hit more durable than different solid members. Showbiz Cheat Sheet requested second stew Madison Stalker for her ideas on the quantity of hate MacGillivray receives. “The internet can be a dark place. People love hiding behind screens,” she remarked. “I don’t think anyone deserves to hate spewed onto them.”

The course of has opened her eyes to the extent of on-line cruelty

Unable to stay silent any longer, MacGillivray took to Instagram to share her ideas on what she’s encountered. “So, I have mentioned before that I will ALWAYS advocate for myself, and anyone else who needs it,” she started her post together with a behind the scenes picture.

“Being part of this process has really opened my eyes to the type of bullying and cruelty that exists online in a way that has shocked me,” she continued. “I am on a show. I agreed to share myself with the world and all that comes with it, however, I will remind people that I do not support abuse when I can stop it.”

She added, “So when people send abusive messages (that are literally repulsive to read), I will not listen to that. Some people have been shocked that I have the nerve not to allow abusive messages to remain on my own page. I am one person, but I know this goes on in various forms all over the internet and it is not ok.”

She is staying true to herself

MacGillivray shared that some messages had been from viewers who prompt she change her character. “The hateful messages have not made me reevaluate myself (as some of you had hoped) because I am a strong woman and I know who I am in real life,” she shared.

“It is ok to disagree with how I am as a Chief Stew, it is not ok to continually harass and verbally abuse anyone,” she insisted.

“The people that follow my page, or know me personally know who I am, and above all, I know who I am. We are all capable of making mistakes, of being short at times with others, of feeling frustrated, and I am able to recognize things I want to improve in myself as I continue to grow and learn as a person in life in general. I loved being part of the show. I loved working with the crew. And I love all the positive responses I do get.”
