The 54-year-old TV star - who is the mother of models Gigi and Bella Hadid - has called for increased censorship of social media platforms such as Twitter and Instagram, admitting it's impossible for the people being abused to escape the nastiness.

Yolanda explained: "The bad side to social media is that there's so much pressure, hate and judgment. These kids are being watched 24/7 under microscopes.

"There needs to more rules over the death threats and nastiness. No matter how strong your psyche is, that stuff will rock you."

Yolanda - who is a former model - revealed she tries to take her daughters away from the drama of social media when the abuse goes too far.

In fact, the blonde star explained that she's tried to put up a "barrier" between her daughters and the people who direct the abuse towards them.

Speaking to Harper's Bazaar magazine, she shared: "When the kids are upset, I take them back to the farm, connect them to the earth and remind them of who they are.

"When I see them riding horses and working on the vegetable patches, that's who they are and people don't know that person. You have to put a barrier up so that they can't penetrate through. It's something we need to pay more attention to."
