“So I’m a little shaken up right now because me and Eden were just about to leave Shoal Bay, we just had lunch.” 

Cyrell then starts to cry as she tells the camera, “‘And this lady, a restaurant owner… thought it would be hilarious while I’m walking down the street to turn around and call me a ‘f***ing black….”

Cyrell’s co-stars have since expressed their disgust in the shameful turn of events, with Cyrell even sharing Billy Vincent’s Instagram story: “I have just been informed that my two friends…have been racially and physically attacked.” 

Billy then names the cafe in Shoal Bay. 

Cyrell has since posted a message of thanks to her fans who have shown their support. 


“Thank you to everyone for the support today… Eden and I have received such amazing messages and we thank u,” Cyrell wrote, alongside a photo of herself with her Love Island boyfriend. 

“Racism needs to stop. And it starts just by supporting one another. Like everyone has done so today. And to this man that stands beside…. I thank u for being there for me.”

The post has been liked by fellow MAFS contestant of the popular reality show, Jules Robinson, while MAFS star Lauren Huntriss was shocked to hear of the racist abuse, writing: “Dude what happened????! Do I need to sort some b****es out??”

It is unclear if a police report has been filed. 

The owner of the Pelican Cafe in Shoal Bay has since gone on the Kyle and Jackie O show to refute the claims that it was she who attacked Cyrell and Eden.
