A Daily Mail Australia reporter has been sacked over the closing line of her story about Bachelor in Paradise cast member Florence Alexandra, in which she called the show's contestants "vapid cunts".

The story, with April Glover's byline, was based on an Instagram post about a cosmetic procedure Alexandra had used, and finished with: "But most people who were educated at a high-school level know these vapid cunts only go on the shows to find mediocre Instagram fame and make a living promoting teeth whiteners and unnecessary cosmetic procedures."
