Confirmation of their relationship had mixed reactions on social media the couple says.
The Bachelor Australia got a huge twist this year when contestants Megan Marx and Tiffany Scanlon met on the show and instead of falling for bachelor Richie Strahan, they fell for each other instead.
The gossip was fueled by speculation until the couple went public last week about their relationship, something the women say has been met with instances of online hate.
“There’s always trolls,” Marx told The Fix, with Scanlon adding: “I don’t understand that at all.”
The couple have moved in together; Scanlon leaving Perth to live with Marx in Geraldton, Australia.
The couple say that some social media followers are describing them as “dammed.”
“I got told by someone a quote from (The Bible) that I was going to hell today,” Marx said, according to Yahoo News.
“But you know you’ve just got to laugh it off,” she adds.
