KATIE Price has lashed out at a follower, telling her to “stop sending abusive messages” and threatened to “call the police” if they continue.
The former glamour model took to her Instagram stories to call out the social media troll, who she claimed had been abusing her online.

Katie, 43, posted to her 2.6million social media followers that she was being targeted by one fan, who she claimed was sending “abusive messages”.
Screenshotting the profile of the follower, the media personality named and shamed them as she threatened to “report” the messages.
“Please stop sending me abusive messages constantly or I will report you to the police,” mum-of-five Katie captioned the hit-back post.
“So now she has changed her name and profile picture but I’ve screenshot everything,” Katie followed up. “This is why I’m pushing for #HarveysLaw.”
Last year, Katie began campaigning to British MPs for a law that would crack down on “faceless keyboard warriors” behind troll social media accounts.
It came after her disabled son Harvey, 19, who suffers from Prader-Willi Syndrome, autism and blindness – was targeted in a sick video.
She blasted “unacceptable online abuse” after a man who shared a video mocking teen Harvey was cleared by a judge as it was a “joke“.
It showed a woman pretending to be Katie, asking her partner: “If someone says something horrible to Harvey, what do we say?”

Following the video, Katie who has been campaigning for “Harvey’s Law” to make online abuse a specific offence, urged the government to take “urgent action”.
“Trolling and online abuse is unacceptable, Harvey’s Law and Track a Troll are steps towards the much needed regulation of online behaviour,” she wrote.
Katie’s fiance Carl Woods also hit back at trolls this week after in a furious rant after they slammed him for continuing to drink despite her sobriety.
Carl, 32, made it clear he was not joining wife-to-be Katie, 43, in giving up alcohol for Dry Jan weeks after she was cleared in court following a drink-drive smash.
A source exclusively told The Sun that the ex-glamour girl, who dodged a jail term for overturning her Range Rover last year, had “vowed” to give up booze.
“Usually, Katie would have a few drinks over Christmas but she has knocked that on the head and will be doing Dry January to get her mind right,” they revealed.
Despite this, Carl filmed himself knocking back a series of different beers as he relaxed at home with Katie – with their Christmas tree still up in the background.
“We’ll start with this one, and then we will move onto the Sol and see what’s happening,” he told his following as he chugged from a Corona bottle.
However, Katie’s fans were quickly up in arms to complain that Carl wasn’t going to join her in her sobriety this month, and called for him to be more “supportive”.
“He’s drinking in front of her? Wouldn’t call that supportive,” one woman lashed out, as a second chimed in: “How about Dry Jan in support of your wife to be?”
“Disgusting behaviour,” a third scathed, as a fourth wrote: “My thoughts exactly. Just goes to show how seriously they are taking things.”
Carl headed to the comments on his latest Instagram post to hit back at the trolls, reminding them that him giving up booze before “didn’t make a difference”.
“How about I done all that before and it didn’t make any difference?” he lashed out as he continued: “How about you look at her GMB interview from the other morning…”
