Hall also divulged that he and his partner, Lauren Brant, and their baby son had been the subject of online abuse since the incident.
"Basically saying that I was a pig and she (wife Lauren) deserves me and all that stuff and my son’s ugly and talking about harmful things to them, and I’m not just talking about harmful words I’m talking about physical stuff," he said.
"Well it’s just a pack mentality, really. They just lay the boots in .. it’s a form of bullying, really. They get on, and everyone’s gotta have their say … and I had thousands and thousands and thousands (messages) of just hate, absolute hate."
In July, Brant defended his vulgar comment in a lengthy Instagram post.
"Although it was completely wrong, it was not intended to be a malicious statement and there was absolutely no thought or substance behind it," she said.
"He fully admits that it was unacceptable, completely regrets it and has done his best to apologise for the offence he has caused."
