There have been many reactions from Karl’s fans showing their support to him. Ira Losco herself has reposted Debono’s post on both her Facebook and Instagram accounts.

This story comes after many claims concerning injustices with the results and that accusations of bias and undue pressure was taking place with people claiming to have received messages from Schembri’s parents asking them to vote for him as well as the elimination of some of the viewers’ favourites in the last two shows. On behalf on X Factor’s production, it was made clear that there will be no tolerance concerning such cases if these are proven true.
