Made in Chelsea’s Alik under fire for tweet calling Louise’s kiss with Elliot ‘rapey’
Made in Chelsea's Alik Alfus has been causing a stir on Twitter following Monday night's episode in which his girlfriend Louise Thompson admitted to kissing Elliot Cross.
Alik (27) was seen taking the call in New York from Louise (25) in London as she revealed, "'Basically, apparently I kissed Elliot. God knows why! I don't even know the guy. It's all so weird."
"It's not like I make these decision consciously,' she added. 'I don't know why I risk my relationship with you. It actually breaks my heart."
Louise claimed to have blacked out and to have no recollection of the aforementioned kiss, prompting Alik to take to Twitter to blame Elliot.
"Nothing condones cheating and please correct me if im wrong but this s*** just seems rapey!!!" he said.
Alik later deleted the tweet after facing some backlash from fans. One, @KPatton79, wrote, "I think you are maybe straying into dangerous territory with this tweet!"
@Kirsty_Hawkins wrote, "@alikalfus far from rapey! She cheated and got caught out."
However, he posted another tweet, again taking a pop at Elliot.
"Not to excuse anything but only weak losers hu with drunk girls that are incapacitated, blacked out, and belong to someone else ..." he said.
This prompted more backlash as most fans blamed Louise for the tryst.
@BJulietC said, "@alikalfus sorry but no ✋ i dont condone either of them but hes single, shes the one who should have some respect and willpower!!"
Another, @KillianDoonan wrote, "@alikalfus not the 1st time she's "blacked" out like this Alik".
The kiss came to light when Elliot told Binky's new boyfriend JP that he had kissed Louise at a party at his house.
He said she had made the first move, but he felt guilty and put her to bed and went to sleep on the sofa.
Elliot retweeted a post from the official MIC account which read, "News travels fast in Chelsea @elliot_cross! #MadeInChelsea".
Alik responded with, "@elliot_cross @E4Chelsea especially when your the one telling everyone!!"
He then told Elliot to "grow the f*** up".
When Binky broached the subject with Louise, Louise responded with, "Oh my god yes because I fancy Elliot. Well the problem is it's his word against mine but I can't remember anything."
She added, "The thought of hooking up with Elliot makes me feel very unwell."
As the episode ended Alik pledged to get a flight to London the following day. A preview of next week's show sees him confront Elliot and accuse him of taking advantage of Louise.
