Sharon Gaffka says she will “never retaliate” for bad messages from trolls

Love Island star Sharon Gaffka has shared her horror story of getting stood up with her friends during a daytime lunch.

The reality TV star, 26, ended up in hospital after falling unconscious in the restaurant’s bathrooms after her drink was spiked.

Sharon was completely devastated by the ordeal and ultimately decided to share her story to raise awareness and share her solidarity with other women who have been going through this harrowing experience.

The former Love Island star has now made it his mission to campaign to change the law against spiking.

Sharon lifted the lid on her horrific experience, explaining that she had held back from telling people for a long time because she was “ashamed” that it had happened to her.

The reality TV star had been celebrating the end of the pandemic lockdown with her friends in London when things took a turn for the worst.

“I was so ashamed of what happened to me that I never planned to talk about it. There is so much victim shaming out there and I didn’t want other people to judge me. But I have this platform now where about 90 percent of me is followed by young women, and last year stories about injection spiking came out,” Sharon explained.

“I thought if I could normalize sharing our stories, more women might feel empowered to come forward and then we could actually challenge the abusers.”

Recalling the incident – which took place in July 2020 – Sharon admitted she had “a few glasses of wine” and was “completely sober” before passing out.

After getting up to go to the bathroom, Sharon’s friends became concerned when she never returned to their table.

The reality TV star explained that the last thing she remembers was a drink in her hand – and then everything went black.

“The last thing I remember was having a drink in my hand and after that I have no memory at all,” Sharon said The sun.

“I went to the bathroom but didn’t come back, so two of my friends went to look for me. The booth was locked, they didn’t get an answer and that’s when they panicked.”

An ambulance arrived at the restaurant after Sharon’s friends took action and called for her.

However, paramedics dismissed the star as “drinking too much” when they told her friends to take her home and give her water.

Despite the paramedics’ advice, Sharon’s friends insisted that since she hadn’t been drinking that much, something must have gone seriously wrong.

Hours later, Sharon woke up on an IV in the hospital and she had absolutely no memory of how or why she was there.

When she was released, Sharon knew she must have been vaccinated as she felt “over anxious” afterwards.

“I realized I must have been vaccinated because it didn’t feel like a hangover. I was hyper-anxious and I don’t suffer from anxiety. It was like having a heart attack. I couldn’t really breathe and jumped onto my own shadow. I also had a bump on my head where I fell,” she said

“I haven’t left my house for a week or wanted to see anyone or speak to anyone. I wasn’t feeling safe so I knew it wasn’t the two glasses of wine – I know how I’m like the morning after and it wasn’t even close.”

Since speaking about her experience, Sharon has faced “slut-shaming” comments, but she is determined to keep speaking up on this incredibly important issue in order to change laws in the UK.
