The 25 year old, who rose to fame on the second series of the ITV2 dating show back in 2016, fumed “F the vaccine” in a post which has been branded “clueless” and “stupid” by fans.
She wrote, “Bikini season 2021 ❌.
“I heard they’re paying Love Island stars and influencers to promote Track and Trace.
“I'm here to tell you all. Stay healthy in your mind, meditate. Feed your body goodness. Trust your gut. F the 💉. And oh don’t watch the news #sendinghealing.”
But Katie’s comments didn’t go down well with her followers who took to comments section to criticise her.

Cara De La Hoyde
Cara De La Hoyde was one of the original cast members of Love Island 2016 and before she entered she was a circus performer. Cara immediately hit it off with Nathan Massey and the pair coupled from the very beginning. Viewers loved watching their romance unfold and they were crowned winners of the series.
“Come and do a few shifts on an ambulance and in a COVID ward with me, you'd soon change your mind,” wrote one.
Another added, “When there's people like Doctor Alex [George] working his ass off every day saving people and she poses in bikinis as work and says f--k the vaccine.”
“Recently lost someone to Covid, if they'd had the vaccine they would still be here,” commented a third.
Katie has since turned off the comments on her post and updated the caption to add, “That is my choice, you make your own.”

Katie is the latest Love Islander to come under fire, just days after Sophie Piper – the sister of former The Saturdays singer Rochelle Humes – faced backlash for jetting off the Maldives with her boyfriend Casey despite the current ban on non-essential travel.
When she posted a beachside snap on the ‘gram with the caption, “Trust the timing in your life,” many of Sophie’s followers took to the comments section to question why she had travelled given the current circumstances.
“So everyone going to ignore the fact she’s travelled with a PANDEMIC going on? Smh,” wrote one, while another remarked, “Guess the lockdown rules don’t apply to you then?”
