Ruby Tuesday Matthews is STILL being trolled for her ‘oystergate’ scandal three months ago – as she vows to delete ‘scummy messages’ every day
It’s been three months since Ruby Tuesday Matthews was infamously branded ‘entitled’ for holding up a Jetstar flight to eat oysters.
But the Byron Bay influencer, 27, says she’s struggling to move past the saga, as she’s still receiving ‘scummy comments’ from social media trolls to this day.
As reported by Perth Now, the mother-of-two admitted that she now deletes snarky comments about the oystergate scandal on a daily basis.

‘Still going. Every day deleting scummy messages from hateful people,’ she wrote on Instagram recently.
However, Ruby appears to be fighting a losing battle, as a plethora of negative comments are still visible on her Instagram page.
On Tuesday, the model uploaded a photo of herself posing at the gym, but it wasn’t long before trolls swamped the post with unkind comments.

‘Gotta work off them oysters’: Ruby once again received an onslaught of comments referring to the ‘oystergate’ saga on Tuesday
‘Gotta work off them oysters,’ one user commented.
‘How were the oysters? Glad you could enjoy them while you ruined everyone else’s day,’ another wrote.
Ruby was due to fly from Byron Bay to Sydney on a 5pm flight in October last year, but a technical issue caused the plane, flight JQ461, to be delayed.

‘Flight delayed f**k my life’: While most other travellers remained at the terminal and purchased food from the cafe at the airport, Ruby and her travel companion decided to leave the terminal to grab a bite to eat instead
The budget airline asked travellers to stay put while waiting for an engineer, and told passengers the new departure time would likely be about 7.30pm.
But Ruby and her travel companion left the airport to grab a bite to eat at a beachside restaurant, leaving passengers waiting on the tarmac for 30 minutes for the pair to return.
Ruby was heckled by passengers when she eventually boarded the plane. She later slammed the airline upon her arrival in Sydney for allowing her to be ‘bullied’.

Jetstar released a statement saying they had ‘kept customers informed’ throughout the delay, and asked them ‘not to leave the airport should the flight be able to get away ahead of the revised time’.
But Ruby claimed there were a number of other passengers who left the airport and arrived after the rescheduled departure time.
‘It’s just crazy now,’ she said following the airline’s response.
‘This is so minor this s**t. I actually think it’s a joke and it’s annoying that it has to waste so much of my time.
‘Jetstar made a complete joke of themselves. They let that harassment happen.’
