Old tweets from Zoella have been dug up online in which she mocks ‘fat chavs’ and gay people.
The tweets went out from her account in 2010, 2011 and 2012, however it is not known if Zoella, 27, sent them herself.
One now-deleted tweet from 2010 reads: ‘I find it funny when gay men spit…it’s like they’re trying to be a bit macho but never works…’
Another also deleted tweet reads: ‘”why are these clothes so expensive” because they’re designer you tramp, that there in your hand is a dress worth over £2000. Haha’.
She also referred to someone on The X Factor as a ‘fat chav’ and said that a woman – unidentified in her tweet – should ‘keep her legs shut’.
Metro.co.uk has contacted Zoella’s rep for comment. She is yet to address the tweets herself.

The unearthed tweets come as the beauty blogger comes under fire for her advent calendar, costing £50.
