'Snakes': TOWIE's Tommy Mallett tells 'show bosses to go f*** themselves' over negative portrayal of girlfriend Georgia Kousoulou
Tommy Mallett has lashed out at The Only Way is Essex, following scenes that appeared on Sunday night's ITVBe show.
He and girlfriend Georgia Kousoulou came under fire after she made Megan McKenna cry by claiming she had 'no friends', and the abuse he received after his remarks has led to him launching a foul-mouthed rant.
Taking to his Twitter account after the episode, Tommy wrote in a since-deleted post: 'After watching that scene... The only way is Essex can go f*** themselves... That's all I'm saying. Big up Towie.... Little snakes (sic)'

Not so happy now: Tommy Mallett reportedly lashed out at The Only Way Is Essex on Sunday night, following an episode of the ITVBe show that showed his girlfriend in a poor light
After he erased his tweet, he quickly followed it up by sharing the quote: 'People are blind to reality and only see what they want to see.'
He then claimed that fans will be back on his side next week when they watch the episode to follow and he's not bothered if people continue to hate him.
He said: 'You'll love me next week... & if you don't... Go brush your teeth (sic)'
A representative for TOWIE has been contacted by MailOnline for further comment.

Despite hinting that he'd come to blows with TOWIE bosses and indicating that he may soon walk out over the incident, Tommy was seen filming with the cast on Monday morning.
The pair's co-star Chloe Sims - who fell out with Megan and her boyfriend Pete Wicks during the last series before the summer - immediately jumped to their defence.
She wrote: 'Just caught up #towie @MissGeorgiakx you are an absolute BOSS people got short memories your about the snide comments last series.'
And then added: 'As for keep dragging up @tommy_mallet he just says what everyone else is too scared to. (sic)'
Victim: Viewers were seemingly unhappy that Georgia had made Megan cry
Tommy found himself in hot water after he claimed the only reason Megan had made up with the rest of the 'Girl Band' was because she didn't have any friends left.
His comments then got back to the High Heeled Shoes hitmaker - who claimed Number 1 and 2 in the iTunes Download Chart this month - and she burst into tears.
Just last year, Tommy accused shows like TOWIE of deliberate editing to create better stories.
Long-serving stars: Tommy previously lashed out at reality TV bosses over 'editing'
He lashed out during an episode of ITV2's The Baby Diaries, which follows the relationship between ex-TOWIE star Sam Faiers, partner Paul Knightley and their baby Paul.
'We know from on TOWIE that the edit can screw you,' he said.
'You can't comment on someone's show because what we know of Paul is that he's a nice geezer. The way it gets edited - it's a different story.'
