Father of Daughters responds to Clemmie Hooper's trolling scandal

Simon, said he knew nothing of his wife's secret account she used to troll other mummy bloggers.

Father of Daughters said he was feeling "angry & a bit sad" in a statement posted today to his 1 million followers and claimed that he knew nothing about her actions over the last 8 months since she opened the account.

He said "Frankly, I'm in a crap position as I only really have 2 options - 1). to stay silent to protect my wife & knowing that if I do, the silence will be deafening or 2). to comment on something I had no knowledge of. It's not a fun place to be. And yet fun is what I can to Instagram for. I don’t take myself or life too seriously, but when something like this happens I have to acknowledge it and in all honesty, I'm feeling both angry & a bit sad. I can't condone or fully understand why Clemmie did what she did. "

Clemmie recently admitted that she was the person behind a fake account called Alice in Wanderlust, which posted negative comments about other mummy bloggers and influencers, including Hungermama, who was a friend of hers and also negative comments on her own husband's account.

Clemmie, said she was "deeply sorry" for her actions. People have called for her to be removed from practice as a midwife as the negative trolling comments consistently had racial undertones.
