Laura Bileskalne of Below Deck Down Under has increased her support for co-star Luke Jones following his termination for a nonconsensual sexual encounter.
In last week’s episode of the reality show, the stewardess was dismissed for improper behaviour and mocking an event in which a nude Luke climbed into Margot Sisson’s bed while she was unconscious.
While Laura first apologised following major outrage, she has since hit back, stating that “haters gonna hate” and taking aim at show fans who have called her out.
She’s now released another post on social media, this time defending her former co-star despite his terrible acts.
‘I don’t take s*** from who[ever] has not actually watched it,’ she began.
‘Don’t make up a preditor [sic] from someone who gave a HUG to a girl who willingly kissed 25 min ago.
‘[Get] over yourself and your bs,’ she wrote on Instagram.
Then sharing a screenshot of a supportive message she’d received, Laura added: ‘I will stay loyal to myself and my friend @lukebonesjones I never do or ever will stand up for what is wrong.
‘And you can not bent [sic] me.
‘I am a hustler, and you have nothing on me. #hatersgonnahate. And that’s on you.’

Laura later said that she knew ‘what is wrong or right’ and that people would ‘not change my mind no matter how hard you try’.
The day prior, the former reality star posted a photo of her and Luke alongside the words: ‘You are not alone. #staytruetoyourself #beyou #donotgetinfluenced.’
Her words contrast sharply with her previous apologies, in which she singled out Adam Kostra after repeatedly making advances on him despite the deckhand’s protests.
‘My sincere apologies to Adam, I did not realise I made him feel uncomfortable and no one should be put in that position,’ she wrote in a post.
‘And to Margot to not been able to empathise. I was 29 when the show was filmed, 30 was my life-changer. I am 31 now and I am watching it as all of you, an entertainment show.’
Speaking to Margot after the incident, Laura had claimed what happened was a ‘joke’ and Luke ‘wouldn’t rape you or anything’, statements that contributed to Captain Jason Chambers letting Laura go soon after.
