The death of one of Britain's most famous TV stars, “Love Island” host Caroline Flack, has sparked a debate over the behaviour of the tabloid press and whether social media companies need to do more to remove toxic content. The 40-year-old Flack, the former presenter of the hugely popular reality show “Love Island” and a winner of Britain's version of “Dancing with the Stars”, was found dead in her London flat on Saturday after she committed suicide. Friends of the presenter have accused the tabloid press and social media trolls of hounding her after she was charged with assaulting her boyfriend in December, a charge she denied. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s spokesman called her death a tragedy and said social media companies needed to do more to make sure that robust processes were in place to remove unacceptable content.
