This comes as Chloe Burrows' family opened up about the online abuse and death threats they'd experienced since Chloe entered the villa earlier this week.
Love Island's official Twitter account released the following statement:
"We want Love Island to be a positive experience for all of our cast and their friends and family members.
"Last night's episode created strong reactions but some viewers' posts were wholly unacceptable. We take these matters extremely seriously and will support cast members and their families in reporting such posts.
"We would once again urge all of our viewers to think before posting, and remember that our Islanders are people with feelings."
Earlier today (1 July), Chloe Burrows' family introduced themselves via Chloe's Instagram Stories, releasing a statement on the "disgusting" abuse they've been receiving.
In their statement, they also urged people to remember previous Love Island contestants Mike Thalassitis and Sophie Gradon, who sadly took their own lives after their time on the show. They also made a nod to Caroline Flack, Love Island's original host who sadly took her own life in 2020 and is remembered for her legacy of #BeKind.
Their statement read:
"We hate to introduce ourselves under such vile circumstances but we've had enough, after just 3 episodes.
"We all have thick skin but the amount of trolling Chloe has been receiving is absolutely disgusting. This morning we woke up to yet another DM (see next story), encouraging Chloe to kill herself - there have been HUNDREDS. Have the deaths of Sophie, Mike and Caroline taught us nothing?
"Not only that, but people are flooding her inbox threatening to kill her themselves. People… this is a GAME show, there is a cash prize!
"We understand the frustration surrounding @shannonsinghhh's eviction - we feel it too! She didn't deserve to leave so early but Chloe does not deserve to DIE because Shannon had to leave the villa! She will have had no idea of the repercussions of her decision prior to making it.
"We are not naive. We know that this post won't put an end to trolling. All the advice we get is to 'ignore it' and 'block the trolls', sometimes it's not that easy. Our hope is that this just reminds some of you to #BeKind."
Chloe's family then posted a screenshot of one of the death threats that had been sent to her account. It was later deleted by Instagram for violating community guidelines.
