Lily Allen recently reported a self-claimed army sniper to the Ministry of Defence for sending her a racist message over Twitter.
The singer received a comment from serving soldier Harry Wilson reading, 'just seen you bought s*** I meant adopted a child from Africa", which sparked her informing his employers. The MoD are currently investigating the remark with one Army spokesperson stating: "Racism of any kind is completely unacceptable and the Army has a zero-tolerance approach to all forms of harassment and discrimination". He added, "We are aware of the alleged offensive comments and are investigating the matter. It would be inappropriate to comment further while this is on-going".
Allen, who Tweets under her married name Lily Rose Cooper, has since received a barrage of abuse from Harry Wilson supporters, many of which were retweeted by the popstar. "Good morning you piece of low life scum! HarryWilsonIsNotRacist harrywilsonisahero suelilyallen stranraerfamily", and "Harry been told the top dogs in the army want him discharged! a hope ur f**in happy ya coke head b****** ?harrysnotaracist?' and "We're doing a gig for Help The Heroes in Stranraer was wondering if you want to help.... Oh no wait you want them sacked..!!'",were but a few of the angry comments.?
