Angie Kent, 30, has called out current Bachelor Locky Gilbert for going on a ‘liking spree’ of saucy snaps shared by various scantily-clad female Instagram users — including upcoming Bachelorette Elly Miles.

Locky’s social media flirtations were exposed in a series of screenshots posted on the So Dramatic! podcast account which showed he’d ‘double-tapped’ pics of multiple reality TV personalities posing in lingerie and swimwear.

Locky’s ‘liking spree’

Back in April, the ex-Survivor star apparently ‘liked’ a pair of sizzling poolside photos by bikini-clad Love Island contestants Jessie Renée Wynter and Francoise Draschler as well as a pic of Elly sporting a white lacy bra and knickers set.

In a lengthy comment on the post, Angie branded 30-year-old Locky’s online behaviour ‘super disrespectful’ particularly considering Aussie audiences are currently watching him woo a handful of stunning women on-screen.

“I find it super disrespectful when dudes who have girlfriends go on cute little liking sprees of babes in bathers or lingerie,” the former Bachelorette wrote.

“I mean sure, have a good old look and appreciate the magic that is the female chass, you’re only human.... but unless home girl is your girlfriend or ya best friend, how about you don’t go and double tap that? It’s not that hard,” she added.

Angie went on to call out the double standard when it comes to how men and women conduct themselves on social media.

“Imagine if the shoe was on the other foot. Their big male egos would throw toys so far out of their prams...we’d never hear the god damn end of it,” she pointed out.

Angie was met with praise from other commenters, with many writing ‘Preach!’ and ‘100%’ in response.

Her sentiment clearly struck a chord with one of Locky’s exes, Love Island star Jordan Cayless, who commented, “Couldn’t of said it better myself”.

Another follower begged to differ, writing, “Surely liking some hot pics is no biggy”.

“Nothing surprises me anymore,” wrote another.

Angie on Timm: ‘I don’t know him’

Angie has been outspoken of late on past Bachie contestants having recently unleashed on her Bachelorette ex Timm Hanly after watching his antics on the 2020 season of Bachelor In Paradise.

“I don’t know him,” she revealed during a chat with Kyle and Jackie O on Wednesday morning.

“Timm was completely different to the person I fell for on [The Bachelorette],” she added.

Angie went on to say that she has ‘no idea’ what the 28-year-old is like today, suggesting that the two are very much no longer in touch.

When quizzed about her opinion of her other on-screen lover, Ciarran Stott, Angie’s response was similar, with the former Gogglebox star saying that she ‘didn’t know’ the Brit that she saw in Fiji.

Elsewhere in the chat, Jackie O asked if there was any truth to Carlin’s claims on a recent podcast that Angie and Timm’s texts post-show had led to their breakup.

“There was nobody else involved in our breakup... it has nothing to do with Timm at all,” Angie said.
