"He knows he's a monster for what he did, and if you see him, maybe give him a hug even if he doesn't deserve it. Give him a hug, he's down bad."

After hearing Schwartz's comments, Kent took to her Instagram story to exclaim, "Did Schwartzy just say, "If you see Sandoval in the street, give him a hug"? We're atomically wedgie-ying his a*s. We're punching him straight in the d**k." The 32-year-old continued in another clip where she was walking around her home and said:

"Every time I sit here and say 'I'm over scandoval, I don't want to see it anymore,' one of those f**king people just meets another level of buffoonery. And here I am, here I am, having to school more mother fu*kers on life. What Schwartz said has made me need to smack my vape 500 hundred times."

The nickname 'Scandoval' originated from the scandal involving Tom's covert seven-month-long relationship with co-star Raquel Leviss. The affair was discovered when she stumbled upon a sexually-explicit video from the model on his phone during his concert in March. 

Since then, he has tried apologizing by releasing a statement, but The Blast reported that it was not received very kindly by Kent. The mother-of-one made sure to air her opinions on what she thought of the message and Sandoval.

"S*ndoval. Shut up. Employees, abort mission," adding, "Where's Ariana's apology in this? It's called narcissism … & and it's terrifying."
