The Block 2022’s Sharon Johal has called out trolls on Instagram who sent her private messages steeped in racism.
On August 31, Sharon shared two horrific DMs that she received by posting them to her Story.
**Trigger Warning: The racist content has been censored but may trigger some readers.**
One troll has over 1000 followers, while the other account appeared to have been just to message the Blockhead.
“You filthy cheating Indian c**t. Get out of our f*cking country,” an anonymous troll wrote before sending a second message.
“Dirty lying c**ts, both of you filthy f*cking grubby pieces of sh*t! Deny all you f*cking like; we all seen [sic] you search it on your f*cking phones. F*cking cheats, that’s all you two dogs are. F*ck off back to your own f*cking country, you s*rubber b*tch! Your day is coming, mole!”
While another said: “You probably should have stuck to cooking curry in the kitchen!”
Sharon shared both messages without censoring their usernames or comments.
Sharon Johal’s Latest TikTok Addressed Her “Cheating Scandal” on The Block 2022
Since The Block 2022 started airing in early August, Sharon and her husband Ankur Dogra have been thrown into the reality TV deep end.
The most recent “cheating” controversy occurred during the August 30 episode, after they searched for a “recipe” for Samantha’s Paddock wines and won $50,000 in the wine-making challenge.
The seemingly manufactured scandal seemed to be what sparked the latest onslaught of hateful messages.
The actress addressed the drama on TikTok, reminding viewers that “no cheating occurred”.
“There were no rules against using phones or researching – we all did,” she wrote on the video, before adding: “We told production and the winemaker we had tasting notes from the start.”

The Blockhead has also been addressing the various controversies on her shared Instagram account with Ankur.
After their recipe-Googling scandal, Ankur and Sharon captioned their Insta post: “Big kisses for the smart win. Hubby nailed it!”
They also directly addressed the drama, reminding viewers there were “absolutely no rules that we cannot use our phones or search the net/google anything”.
They added the hashtags “#smartmove #notcheating #somuchdrama”.
Unsurprisingly, the couple has turned off their comments on Instagram.
