The TV farmer believes trolls find it easier to say mean remarks online, as they can “hide behind their screens”.
He continued: “They are hiding behind their screens, being really quite vicious towards me.
“Making all sorts of assumptions and using language that is totally inappropriate. I find that, not hurtful, but really frustrating.
“Surely we need to have a sensible, adult conversation. I’m quite prepared to change my views, but I’m not going to do it if people are vicious,” he stated.
