The devastating attack by Imogen was a reaction to Tegan who announced that she would be the official ambassador for the 2019 Melbourne Cup Carnival.
& # 39; Glad to announce that I am the Melbourne Cup Carnival Ambassador for 2019, & # 39; Tegan wrote on Instagram next to a photo of himself posing with a horse.
& # 39; The carnival has always been a favorite time of the year for me and with only 55 days to go it will be a great season, & # 39; she added.

Tegan's & # 39; s post was greeted with a lot of congratulations from other celebrities, including Keira Maguire, Anna Heinrich, Erin Holland and Elyse Knowles.
However, Imogen was less impressed by the news and criticized Tegan's decision to support the annual event.
She started by insisting that the two women were friends and wrote: & # 39; I love you, but I am a minute & # 39; that person & # 39 ;, what I hate. & # 39;

& # 39; You (Tegan) look beautiful and that horse is beautiful & # 39 ;, she added. & # 39; But the Melbourne Cup is bad. & # 39;
Imogen went on to say that she and Kyle have first-hand experience working with horses that are barely able to walk & # 39; after a lifetime of racing.
She then described the Melbourne Cup as a & # 39; terrible and barbaric event for the poor, beautiful, defenseless horses involved in it & # 39 ;.

She even claimed that the horse Tegan was pictured with & # 39; could be flogged and shoot at the end & # 39; of the race.
Imogen decided by telling Tegan she didn't blame her personally, but she wanted people to know the reality of horse racing.
& # 39; It's not your fault honey, & # 39; she wrote. & # 39; You just do work, but I just wish people would recognize what it really is for these poor horses: pure and utter torture. & # 39;

This is not the first time that Imogen is critical of the Melbourne Cup.
Last year she had provocative words for the horse racing industry prior to the annual race.
Imogen argued at the time about Instagram and claimed that the industry & # 39; really f ** ked & # 39; was, before he attacked drunk race visitors who signed an event & # 39; that is killing horses & # 39 ;.
& # 39; The number of horses being beaten, bones, or cardiac arrest is really terrible, & # 39; she wrote.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Tegan and Imogen for comments.
