Glenda Gilson defends Cassie Stokes after receiving homophobic hate mail


Glenda Gilson has stood up for her co-host Cassie Stokes, after she received vile homophobic hate mail.

The TV3 star, who hosts Xposé alongside Cassie, slammed the bullies and showed support for her pal.

“I just think it was odd and strange in this day and age that someone could take the time to write a message like that, hate mail, and send it into her on the back of a postcard where anyone can read it,” she told the Irish Daily Mail.

Cassie revealed last week that she had been sent vile hate mail, labelling her as “queer” and “bent”.

While it’s hard to read these comments, Glenda admitted that it’s part of being in the spotlight.

“You get a lot of good attention so you have to take the good with the bad.

“It’s water off a duck’s back and you just have to deal with it,” she added.
