Appleton took to Instragram once again in an attempt to explain the situation.
"Let me clear something up," she wrote. "I don't want this attention, I have no desire to become known in the slightest. If the account is fake then it needs to be removed, if it's real then he is a hideous human."
"I regret posting it because for what it's caused but at the same time (if it's real) then it shouldn't be covered up, there are too many young, vulnerable girls that this industry exploits," she continues. "Thank you for the kind messages and that's the end of it."
