They're claiming that Dani is being "emotionally abused."
Last nights show of Love Island had it all.
From games, kisses and tears. But one person got put through a pretty painful ordeal on the show, and the public aren’t happy.
Dani and Jack have been the It couple from nearly the very beginning. They get on like a house on fire and the kind gestures and sweet things they say to each other has warmed everyone’s heart.
Last week, the lovebirds made it official after Jack asked Dani to be his girlfriend (sob), and it seemed like nothing could crack this couple. That is until the boys were sent to a separate villa, Casa Amor, and six new girls were sent their way and six new boys went in for the girls.
In a state of shock, Jack realised his ex Ellie was one of the newbies. Everything was up in the air as we all waited with held breath in hopes that he’d remained loyal to Dani. But there was a communal sigh of relief as we saw Jack sleep on the daybed every night and confess to the boys that he was in Love with Dani.
Just when we thought nothing could go wrong, the producer decided to send the girls a compilation video of what the boys had been up to in the villa. They showed Adam and Alex smooching new girls, Wes sleeping alone, Josh getting excited about his new interest and finally, Jack reacting to his ex coming into the villa.

Immediately after seeing that Dani, burst into tears asking the girls why do these bad things always happen to her as soon as she’s happy. Dani painfully sobbed in the confessional, thinking Jack had done the worst and saying she didn’t want to see him. But the video didn’t show any of the good things he had done since, like avoiding all the girls including his ex and professing his love for her.
So why did the producers do it? That’s the question everyone is asking. Twitter fans have come out in their droves to criticise the Ofcom producers who they accused of “emotional cruelty” towards Dani.
It saddens/angers me that the love island producers could fuck with Dani’s emotions that much just for ratings. It’s bordering on emotional abuse because the lads done nothing wrong and they know it they just wanted her to flip for the camera.

It’s the fact that the love island producers have literally went and purposely made Dani sad & think her relationship jack was too good to be true, when he’s sleeping outside on a SWING so he’s sleepin alone and has just said he LOVES HER, mental , emotional ABUSE #LoveIsland

I was really enjoying @LoveIsland like I forgot how toxic manipulative reality tv was, but that Dani stunt was so twisted I don’t know if I can continue to watch a show that encourages the deterioration of someone’s mental health. Love Island wants people to be mentally unwell.

#LoveIsland🌴 you are brutal. Breaking Dani’s heart like that and not even showing how Jack said he is in LOVE with the girl and how he has been sleeping outside every night and how he has NOT stopped talking about her.. he’s a changed man and she needs to be reassured😥

People pointed out that following the death of former Islanded Sophie Gradon, they shouldn’t be playing with the contestant’s emotions and causing unnecessary hurt.
#LoveIsland after Sophie Gradon's death, the love island producers assured us that the islanders' mental health was their top priority but then they go and deliberately cause dani to get upset and completely mess with her mental health JUST FOR THE DRAMA? not acceptable.

I’m not being funny, but doesn’t anyone learn? A lovely young girl has died that was on love island due to mental health and now they are messing with a young girls head? Why send the video of that?! Why not a video of jack saying he loves her? #LoveIsland

Here’s hoping that Dani gets to see how good Jack has been and they go back to being national treasures.
