Australian cricketer Aaron Finch's wife Amy Finch recently took to social media to reveal that she has been receiving threats of violence and sexual assault over Aaron Finch's poor performance on the field of late.

Frustrated that she has been receiving vulgar messages for far too long, Amy Finch wrote, "Part of me doesn't want to give this individual the satisfaction of a response, but this kind of crap happens far too often! I don't appreciate it, neither does my husband who is battling and doing everything he possibly can to get back into the runs. Honestly, these keyboard warriors need to go and get a bloody life. This isn't even one of the worst that has come my way, but I've had enough!" Amy mentioned that she has been dealing with such comments for years and also asked trolls to stop calling themselves fans and unfollow her. "Comments of this nature have popped up for years now. It's nothing new and it's certainly something I've gotten used to," she wrote.

"I have a pretty thick skin and can generally ignore them but recently there have been direct threats of violence and sexual assault towards me, my husband and members of our family. You name it, I've heard it. It's gotten to a point where it needs to be called out because ignoring it doesn't stop these people. NOBODY deserves that sort of language to be directed at them!! If you happen to be a fan, how about lending some words of encouragement and support. Otherwise, don't call yourself a fan and please, do me a favour and press the unfollow button! A touch of kindness can go a long way," Amy concluded.
