‘F**k off’: Bachelor star Sogand Mohtat hits back at ‘lockdown police’ who criticised her for exercising at the beach during Sydney’s lockdown


A Bachelor star has shut down ‘lockdown police’ on Instagram after being falsely accused of breaching Covid health orders by exercising at the beach in Sydney.

Sogand Mohtat, 32, a former civil engineer-turned-influencer, had shared photos to Instagram on Sunday of herself soaking up the sun after going for a swim.

But an overzealous critic accused her of simply enjoying a lazy day at the beach, and called her a hypocrite because she’d previously slammed lockdown protesters.

‘Wow! How hypocritical are you! It was only a couple weeks ago you were so outraged at people protesting out “in the fresh air” yet here you are doing the exact same thing – going against health orders,’ one troll wrote.

‘Sunbathing whilst we are hitting 1,400 cases daily is not essential, darling. How pathetic!’

Sogand shut down the troll, responding: ‘I went for a swim and sat in the park away from the crowd with a mask on. F**k off.’

People are allowed to leave their homes to buy food, to exercise and for outdoor recreation. If you live within five kilometres of a beach, like Sogand does, it is perfectly legal to exercise there.

Sogand made it to the final seven of her season of The Bachelor in 2019, before being eliminated in the eleventh episode.

Last March, she revealed her experience on the show gave her a ‘drinking problem’ and resulted in her losing her job as a civil engineer.

She made the admission on Instagram, posting a short video of herself downing a whole glass of wine and writing: ‘Although the show left me unemployed with a slight drinking problem, it was all worth it in the end.’

That same month, Sogand also revealed her career as a civil engineer often intimidated men and made it difficult for her to date.

‘The amount of times I’ve had conversations with guys and as soon as I say “I’m a civil engineer”, their face goes weird,’ she told The Daily Telegraph.

‘The funny thing is, I only did it because I enjoy doing mathematics. I don’t even enjoy working in the industry.

‘If a guy is intimidated by that, I don’t want him in my life.’
