IPSWICH: A love affair that turned sour led a man to leave a message on his ex-girlfriend's Facebook page calling her a "bunny-boiling freak".
Today, Jason Preston, of Oxford Road, is awaiting sentencing after admitting sending a malicious communication through the social networking site.
South East Suffolk Magistrates' Court heard it was also believed the 36-year-old was in breach of a conditional discharge for breaking a civil injunction from a court in Barking, Essex.
Prosecutor Lesla Small said Preston had been with Charlotte Davidson for around two-and-a-half years before their relationship ended.

He replied: "Why the **** do I want to do that."
He then said: "Leave my mother alone. You have got until November 20 to get your **** out of the farm. If not, I will have something sorted and you really don't want that."
Preston later called Ms Davidson a “bunny-boiling freak”.
The court heard Preston claimed he meant he would be dumping Ms Davidson's belongings at her mother's home.
Mark Holt, mitigating, said the pair's relationship ended more than a year ago and Preston, who has a five-week-old daughter with his new partner, had become frustrated that Ms Davidson was taking advantage of his mother's kindness.
Magistrates adjourned sentencing until December 1 for reports and to find out more about the civil injunction.
