Bachelorette Angie Kent has urged people to lay off "villain" Jess Glasgow who was booted off the show last night.
Jess, who is a Noosa councillor, copped to torrent of abuse for his offensive behavior on reality show in which he made lewd
But this morning the star of The Bachelorette told Jess's haters to back off during a radio interview with KIIS FM's Kyle and Jackie O.
"I don''t need him to be online bullied, I can't stand that," Angie told the radio duo. "I don’t wish him any harm or hate.
"Now he can learn from this, hopefully, just learn to talk to women like that if you want to make a connection."

In a series of interviews this morning, the Mayor of Noosa Tony Wellington said he had asked Jess to resign as a councillor, telling Nova's Fitzy and Wippa: "That sort of offensive, crude misogynistic behavior is just not on".
But Angie spoke out again in Jess's defense, saying on KIIS FM: "I don't want him to lose his job, that's something I want for anyone … else says or does about the matter. I just stuck up for myself in that moment, that’s all I did. ”
As for Jess, he was extremely apologetic in a series of interviews this morning and said his hands had stopped shaking since he saw the episode go to air last night.
He also said "Angie on KIIS FM", saying: "I had a great experience, she had a great experience, she deserved better than me."
And he’s not going to be a councillor either, choosing instead to put his hands in the hands of voters when he faces re-election next March.
The Bachelorette continues next Wednesday night at 7.30pm on Channel 10
