Gill has since addressed her story to defend herself amongst the hate, explaining:

"The same people that hashtag Be Kind are the ones commenting on my post saying 'there's people that are dying'. Who said it was sad? I literally said I thought I would be on holiday number five because I go on work trips and like to go on holiday."

Amber insisted to her audience that her words were being taken out of contextstating "Am I not entitled to have a thought anymore? I didn't say if it were sad or happy, so why is everyone jumping the gun while there's a pandemic?

"I'm having a thought that I would be on holiday."

The Miss Pap ambassador tied her rant up nicely claiming that she is doing what she can in an effort to keep people happy and entertained:

"I'm glad I receive the same energy back"

"People really didn't need that extra time on their hands. The way people are sending hate tor my post you'd think I was Ms Rona herself."

Gill also noted that she understands that it may seem like she focuses a lot on the negative side of things but would like to show appreciation for all those who treat her with some kindness online:

"I know it seems I concentrate on the hate. I don't, I just want to call them out. I want to thank you if you say loads of lush things. I try to comment back."
