Allen made the comments as part of a debate on Twitter about child sex abuse in wider British sport.
Lily Allen has triggered yet another Twitter storm, this time by taking to the social media platform to call for the sport of football to be banned for British children.
The frequently outspoken singer, 32, made the remark as part of a larger discussion around ways to prevent children from being sexually abused. She shared a link to a report regarding Operation Hydrant, a police probe into child sex abuse in sport, and suggested that it was “time we talked about banning sports in this country”.
Lily, a mother of two young daughters, made the comment in reply to a different poster who had written: “I’m quite tired of people who think rape or sexual assault is just this special evil problem that only Muslim blokes do to us poor Westerners, when it’s a problem in pretty much every society thanks to toxic masculinity.”

Allen had taken to Twitter to argue that the family renting the London property from her were refusing to leave.
The day after a significant social media backlash when she complained that she and her family might be “homeless at Christmas”, Lily Allen looks like she might be getting her home back after all, after removal vans were spotted outside her London property.
The 32 year old also altered her security settings on Twitter, the day after she used the platform to complain that tenants who were renting her property had refused to leave, after she and her two daughters had left their house in the Cotswolds to return to London.
However, it seems that the tenants are now on their way, with removal vans being pictured outside the £1.5 million property in Notting Hill on Wednesday (December 6th), so it seems as if Lily will get her way.
She can't move back into her flat, and some people are unsympathetic about the situation.
Lily Allen has the nation divided after a posting social media message claiming that she could be homeless this Christmas due to her rich tenants refusing to leave her flat. While plenty of people saw the tongue-in-cheek aspect of the post, many were outraged by her suggestion of poverty.

Apparently, there are people who believe that since Lily Allen is a celebrity, she doesn't have the same rights as anyone else. She complained about a family of foreign diplomats who preached 'diplomatic immunity' when their tenancy on her flat ended, which means that she was unable to move into her own property.

The singer was recalling a 2008 interview were the pair shared some very suggestive banter.
The ‘Late Late Show’ host had been a guest of the singer on her short-lived BBC Three chat show 'Lily Allen and Friends' back in 2008.
And on Twitter, Thursday, a clip of the interview resurfaced, causing Lily to claim she wasn’t receptive to James’s flirting but instead she’d gone along with the banter so she wouldn’t be branded 'cold' or ‘snobbish’.

She said his attitude towards the boxing mascots was 'misogyny'.
Lily Allen isn't new to an internet feud, but her latest one is one of her most unlikely yet. She slammed boxer Chris Eubank Jr for making what she believes were sexist comments about the ring girls in a social media post featuring a post-match interview.

It started with Chris Eubank Jr posting a video from 'The World Boxing Super Series Live' with a caption playing on Liam Neeson's famous monologue from 'Taken'. The video showed his famous father shooing away some ring girls who had appeared in the shot, and blocking the camera's view of them.
Allen was told she was being replaced on 'Newsnight' just after giving a controversial interview on Channel 4 News where she accused the government of "micromanaging" the fall-out of the blaze.
Outspoken pop star Lily Allen has said that her scheduled appearance on ‘Newsnight’ following the Grenfell Tower fire disaster was “cancelled” with just hours to go.
The 32 year old singer had been due to appear on BBC Two’s politics show on Thursday night (June 15th) to discuss the fall-out of the Grenfell Tower blaze this week, which has claimed the lives of at least 17 people and likely dozens more.
Just a few hours before, she had appeared on Channel 4 News in a controversial interview with Jon Snow, saying the government was trying to “micromanage” people’s grief as well as suggesting that the true number of fatalities had been “downplayed”.
The singer takes to Twitter to explain her devastating inspiration.
Lily Allen tugs at heart-strings as she explains the true meaning behind her new song for the 'Pan' soundtrack, 'Something's Not Right'. The singer is well known for her love of family values, which only made this latest revelation all the more overwhelmingly sad.
Lily Allen pays tribute to her son
'Something's Not Right' is a slow, melancholy ballad, which Allen has just revealed was written in tribute to her stillborn son who died in 2010. The pregnancy was her first, and ended after just six months; and it's not something she has often openly discussed with her fans.
The 'Air Balloon' singer is said to have collapsed in the VIP area at the festival last weekend, but quickly recovered.
Lily Allen was reportedly treated by paramedics at Glastonbury after partying a bit too hard over the weekend. The 30 year pop star, who is a regular attendee at the annual music spectacular, received medical attention after collapsing backstage on the Saturday night (June 27th).
According to a report in The Sun on Sunday (July 5th), Lily was with her husband Sam Cooper and a number of friends in the VIP area when she passed out having sat down on the grass to take a breather. Witnesses told the paper that she was “out of it” for about 45 minutes, as concerned friends took her to a nearby car and called paramedics, who after supplying her with oxygen decided that she needed no further attention.

The pop star burned part of the flag after she spotted it walking round the Glastonbury camp site.
The owner of the anti-Kanye West flag that was strategically burned by Lily Allen over the Glastonbury weekend has hit back at the pop star, saying she had “every right” to make the banner and told her not to vandalise people’s things.
Allen, 30, who attended the three-day festival in Somerset last weekend but wasn’t one of the performers, posted a series of videos to her Instagram account that showed her burning the flag that read “F*** off Kanye” so that it simply read “Kanye”.

The rap megastar at the centre of the Tidal streaming re-launch has removed his debut album from Spotify.
The much discussed Tidal revolution seems to already be taking effect. Having purchased the new streaming service as part of a joint venture and re-launching it as an “artist friendly” business model, Jay Z has removed his 1996 debut album Reasonable Doubt from Spotify.
The rapper removed his album overnight between Monday and Tuesday, and it is currently unavailable to stream in the US and Canada. It is, for the moment, still accessible for UK users. Instead, North American fans can find it on – you guessed it – Tidal.

Yesterday's re-launch of the streaming service Tidal has got the entire music industry talking, but Lily Allen believes that the business model might inadvertently drive fans back into the arms of illegal downloading sites.
The biggest music news of the last few days has been the launch of the subscription-only streaming service Tidal, and the stars have been lining up to give their differing opinions on the controversial business model.
Jay-Z re-launched the service at a star-studded press conference including the likes of Kanye West, Rihanna and Daft Punk on Monday (March 30th), promising that Tidal would be a “better experience for both fans and artists”.
Lily Allen has expressed concern about Tidal's business approach
The British singer immediately went on a lengthy Twitter rant after reports began to surface that claimed she gave up alcohol to "grow up."
Since Lily Allen had already stated several years ago that she has had issues with alcohol abuse, the British singer was more than annoyed when several reports surfaced on Tuesday (Dec 8th), claiming that she was "giving up alcohol" in order to "grow up."
Allen fired back at reports that claimed she recently gave up alcohol to "grow up"
In one alleged false report, she was quoted at the British Fashion Awards apparently saying, "I'm sober tonight. In fact, I haven't had a drink for a month. It's been hard not drinking, but I'm trying to grow up. Finally."
Lily Allen has described the Band Aid 30 single as "smug", and made by a "success club" of musicians.
Lily Allen has revealed that she turned down the opportunity to sing on the new Band Aid 30 record because she considered the project "smug". In an interview in the Mail On Sunday's Event magazine, Allen quite rightfully suggested she would rather donate the money herself than sign up for what she dubbed a "success club" of celebrities.
Lily Allen has branded the Band Aid 3 single "smug", saying she would rather donate the money herself
"I got an email asking me to do it," she explained. "It's difficult to explain why I didn't do it without sounding like a complete ****. I prefer to do my charitable bit by donating actual money and not being lumped in with a bunch of people like that."

English singer/songwriter Lily Allen left her old management shortly after the release of her third studio album. Now, she has revealed who's managing her future.
Lily Allen, the English singer/songwriter known for her single, 'Smile', has reportedly gotten new management. This comes in the form of AMA Manager of the Year, Scott Rodger, and Henry Village from Stack House Management. The news was first revealed by Billboard when they reported a cover story on a collection of UK managers that have teamed up to create Maverick, a new managing group, of which Rodger is a member.
Allen left Rocket Management in June, and has just signed with two new managers.
In June, 2014, Music Week released a story confirming that Allen had left the Rocket Management company after six and a half years. Despite having her third studio album, 'Sheezus', reach the number one spot on the UK album chart, Allen was apparently unhappy with the choice of what songs were released as singles, leading to her departure.

It's in the genes! Parents whose children have followed in their famous foosteps
News executives in America were left surprised when news anchor Brian Williams took time out of his NBC Nightly News bulletin last Wednesday to happily announce the appointment of his daughter, Allison Williams, as Peter Pan.

It's been a big week in the life of Sam Smith.
Besides a promising musician, Sam Smith’s debut record has also shown him to be a savvy businessman – but not enough. In an effort to boost US sales and get the album to Number 1 on the Billboard 200, Smith’s management kept In The Lonely Hour off Spotify. The album did well, selling 166,000 copies in its first week, but ultimately fell short of Lana Del Rey’s sophomore effort Ultraviolence. The sultry pop record sold 182,000 units for Capitol Records, making it the biggest (bigger) debut of Lana’s career.
Despite Smith's Spotify gamble, this round went to Lana.
Still, it wasn’t a bad week for Smith. Besides the respectable debut of In The Lonely Hour, the singer-songwriter also discovered a lost connection recently. The saga of Smith’s relation to Lily Allen and her brother, Game of Thrones actor Alfie Allen unfolded over Twitter, when Smith tweeted at the Sheezus hitmaker that, according to his parents, they were third cousins. To his surprise, Lily quickly responded, confirming his suspicion.
