Married At First Sight's Hayley Vernon says she was called a 'tranny' on show - Daily Mail

Married At First Sight's Hayley Vernon accuses a GROOM of spreading false rumours she is 'transgender' and using a shocking slur at a dinner party

Married At First Sight's Hayley Vernon has alleged that a groom called her a 'tranny' during a heated argument at one of the dinner parties.

The 32-year-old finance broker told The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Friday that she suspected a co-star - who cannot be named for legal reasons - had started the false rumour she was born a man after he'd used the transphobic slur on camera.

'Tranny' is a deeply offensive term for a transgender person and is even considered hate speech by some organisations, including Facebook.

She claimed: 'I don't know if it's actually going to be played on air, but [the groom] actually said to me at one of the dinner parties, "Oh, that's okay because I've called you a tranny."

'I've never been called a tranny in my whole life. Who says that? Being transgender is not something that people should make a mockery of [and] it's not something that should be looked at negatively. It's not a life decision... it should be respected.'

The groom's supposed use of the term 'tranny' made Hayley suspicious that he might have also leaked the false rumour about her being transgender to the press.

Fortunately, she didn't let the alleged incident upset her. 

'People that point fingers and put names on you and labels, it says more about their insecurities than it does about yours,' she said.
