'TOWIE' Maria Fowler: 'I could cure cancer and still be hated'

By
Former The Only Way Is Essex star Maria Fowler has lamented how she could "find the cure for cancer" and still be hated.

The model and reality TV personality made the comment after receiving abuse online for asking people to donate money to the Teenage Cancer Trust and When You Wish Upon A Star charities via her JustGiving page.

After being described as "honourable" by a Twitter user who urged her to "ignore the idiots", Fowler replied: "Don't worry people. I could find the cure for cancer and people would still have a go lol."

Fowler's remark only attracted more criticism though, as one follower argued: "It's good that your fundraising but what you just said was that suppost to be a joke? Because cancer is nothing to joke about."

Another asked the TOWIE cast member why she "expect[s] people to give you [money] when they could give direct to the charity".

Fowler is also hosting a charity event with an auction and raffle on November 23.
