Many female Labour MPs have spoken out against the constant stream of abuse and threats of deselection they have received from some of Mr Corbyn's supporters.
The attack surfaced online last night around the same time as Ms Dugdale quit her post saying it is time to 'pass the baton' to someone else.
Nadeem Ahmed, who describes himself as a Corbyn and Momentum supporter, demanded that Ms Philips takes back the comments or face a putsch to kick her out.
The death of her close friend Gordon Aikman - a Motor Neurone Disease campaigner - had also led her rethink her priorities, she said.
In a statement she said: 'As chair of the party, I am writing to you today to resign as leader of the Scottish Labour Party.'It has been an honour and a privilege to have served this party in a leadership position for the last two and a half years, covering four national elections and one referendum.
