Opinion: Has Megan Barton-Hanson's Instagram and nudes defined her?

Megan Barton-Hanson has an explicit Instagram page. She also had nudes that spread across the internet in a flash. Has this defined her?

When it comes to vicious labelling, no-one has suffered more than Love Island’s Megan Barton-Hanson.

At first, the U.K public aimed their scathing attacks at Laura Anderson. A 29-year-old in a villa of spring chicken 20-somethings, Laura was a sitting duck.

“Shut it, you old bag of bones,” – we said.

However, we soon realised that Laura has one of the purest hearts on reality TV. She gracefully renewed her friendship with Megan despite having her boyfriend prized away from her so-called ‘friend’.

Laura had the right to remain bitterly jealous for the remainder of series four, yet she let this younger, funner and more attractive female cause nothing more than a rare flicker of rage in her timid personality.

“You stupid slut,” – said Laura, to Megan.

And since then, we’ve never looked at Megan the same.

Supposedly, we hate Megan Barton-Hanson because she has dotted across men like stepping stones, and still hasn’t come to a final decision over Alex Miller or Wes Nelson.

Of course, Dr Alex George has attempted to woo equal amounts of people – Megan herself, Ellie Brown, Charlie Williams, Grace Wardle – yet because Megan’s ideal relationship is heavily built around sexual chemistry, we are not to cross Megan and Alex in the same train of thought, let alone put them in the same boat.

No. The problem with Megan Barton-Hanson is her image outside of the villa.

Anything Megan does inside the sunny pit of lounging Love Island partners is blown out of proportion, all because of the things we have seen or heard.

‘Banned as a Stripper’, ‘Countless Sugar Daddies’, ‘Plastic Surgery Queen’ – these are all just rumours.

Unfortunately, what we do have, glaring us in the face with full factual evidence, is Megan Barton-Hanson’s Instagram account. It’s a portfolio of raunchy photos.

 

There is a fierce emphasis on sex, with the art of teasing stripped down to the point where Megan is shooting without underwear. There are explicitly revealing images and almost x-rated suggestive shots.

Not forgetting the ‘sucking a dripping watermelon’ photo while in a crop top that says ‘Daddy’.

It feels like all rumours and all stories lead back to Megan’s clumsy Insta.

Megan really hasn’t done that much wrong inside the Love Island villa, besides play games, toy with emotions and keep potential love options open – AKA the basis of a dating game show.

However, from a few suggestive Instagram photos and both the general public and newspaper reporters have managed to piece together a whole new image of Megan.

It’s easy to absorb the photos and stories we see of someone online and to infuse them into a person’s character.

Honestly, it’s too late for Megan Barton-Hanson. But she can provide the symbol to be cautious with what you upload.

Remeber; Sex always sells, but not always in the right way.
