@NicoleScherzy @paulaabdul go die.

@PaulaAbdul and @nicolescherzy you two deserve all the hate. You both made a selfish decision and should be ashamed of yourselves!!

Sources said that Abdul and Scherzinger are shocked at the hateful messages they are receiving.

'Paula and Nicole have been really shocked by the reaction they have had, immediately after the show they were being bombarded with messages angry fans who supported Drew, another source told The Daily Mail.

'It seems a lot of people were as upset for Drew as Simon was. She's a young girl and was visibly upset, but like Astro a lot of Drews fans are online and they are very vocal.

Supposedly, X Factor creator and fellow judge Simon Cowell was also not pleased with the ladies.

TMZ reports that Cowell gave the two the cold shoulder after the show, as he was furious with their decision.
