Tommy Robinson supporters bombard personal trainer with racist abuse after she advertises fitness class for Muslim women

A personal trainer who started a fitness class for Muslim women was bombarded with abuse from Tommy Robinson supporters, according to reports. 
Bianca Jade, 30, claims she was subjected to death threats after Tommy Robinson shared a poster for her 'Muslim women only classes' on social media. 
Ms Jade, from Nottingham, said she had been getting 250 calls a day since Robinson's post on Monday, the Independent reports. 
She claims she has received texts, calls, and messages over social media, as well as people trying to FaceTime her.
Ms Jade said she was called a 'p***', *b****', and the n-word. She added that the volume of abusive phone calls made it difficult for her to talk to her own customers.
'They have been calling me racist names and saying that I should go back to my country. I'm British. I was born here. I'm not Muslim. I've had death threats,' Ms Jade said.
Ms Jade, who has been a trainer at PureGym for three years, said she decided to start the classes because she noticed Muslim women feeling uncomfortable doing certain exercises in front of men in the gym.

'I'm doing these classes so women can take off their hijab and feel comfortable while working out,' she said. 'But people are seeing all the stuff going on the media about the Muslim girl Shamima Begum and they are stereotyping Muslim people. They are very ignorant.'
The trainer said the classes have always been open to any women. 
She put the poster up for the classes three weeks ago and her tyres were slashed the following day, she claimed.  
Ms Jade says she reported the abuse to the police.
