    A splurge of online abuse is being hurled at Kirsty Gallacher days after her Instagram story showing support to brother-in-law Russell Brand vanished.

    Kirsty, whose sister Laura is married to the comedian, added a beating heart emoji to a YouTube clip Brand made where he denied allegations of rape and sexual assault.

    But she appeared to delete the post hours before Dispatches aired a documentary on Channel 4 – where four of his alleged victims spoke out against him.

    Despite distancing herself from it, trolls are continuing to attack her old Instagram posts.

    Under a post about motor racing earlier this month, one woman wrote: “Why would you post in support of him? You have no idea if it’s true and those women have been so brave to talk about it – you should be deeply ashamed.”

    And under a picture from last month where Kirsty attended the StrongMen fundraiser, a male bereavement support charity, comments flooded in about Brand.

    One sarcastically wrote: “Your sister married married well.”

    Her sister, Laura, has two children with Brand and a third on the way, and she has deleted her own Instagram account since the allegations emerged.

    Another wrote under the snap: “What’s ur opinion about ur brother in law.”

    Replying, a commenter added: “She deleted a story where she shared his video with a [love heart emoji] above it, so I’m guessing she supports him.”

    And under another previous post where Kirsty paid tribute to those who died in on 9/11, one person fumed: “Shame on you! I support the women!”

    A second added: “Supporting Russell Brand? Really?”

    Another women added: “Believe victims.”

    Someone else went with: “She works for GB News, you expected a moral person.”

    Former Sky Sports presenter Kirsty introduced her sister to Brand in 2007 when the pair first started dating.

    They married a decade later and they have two daughters together, Mabel and Peggy.

    And despite the backlash on her social media accounts, Kirsty has not commented publicly since the allegations were aired on TV.

    Brand denies all allegations made against him and described them as “aggressive attacks”.

    And in the video that was initially shared by Kirsty, he told his followers: “I've received two extremely disturbing letters or a letter and an email. One from a mainstream media TV company, one from a newspaper listing a litany of extremely egregious and aggressive attacks, as well as some pretty stupid stuff like community festival should be stopped, that I shouldn't be able to attack mainstream media narratives on this channel.

    “But amidst this litany of astonishing rather baroque attacks, often very serious allegations that I absolutely refute. These allegations pertain to the time when I was working in the mainstream, when I was in the newspapers all the time, when I was in the movies. And as I've written about extensively in my books, I was very, very promiscuous.

    “Now, during that time of promiscuity, the relationships I had were absolutely always consensual. I was always transparent about that. Then almost too transparent, and I'm being transparent about it now as well. And to see that transparency metastasized into something criminal that I absolutely deny makes me question, is there another agenda at play?”
