Fans have found problematic tweets from two other contestants

Jack Maynard's fans have hit back at the YouTuber's removal from "I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here" by unearthing problematic tweets shared by some of his former campmates.

Yesterday, Jack left the "I'm A Celebrity..." jungle after tweets from 2011-13 containing racist, homophobic and ableist language were discovered. According to a statement released by his agent, Jack left so he could respond personally to the tweets, and "have the right to defend" himself.

Lots of Jack Maynard fans feel that his departure from the jungle was unfair

In response, some fans began rooting through the other "I'm A Celebrity..." contestants' old tweets, unearthing homophobic tweets from contestants Amir Khan and Rebekah Vardy in the process.

They also found ableist and sexist tweets from Dan Wooton, showbiz editor of The Sun - the newspaper who broke the original story.

None of the other contestants involved have responded to the unearthed tweets.
