Lily Allen is taking a break from Twitter after becoming the target of crude trolls online.
The 31-year-old shared a post on Saturday (25Feb17), announcing she is stepping away from the social media site following a series of abusive remarks – some of which focused on her giving birth to a stillborn son in 2010.
“My timeline is full of the most disgusting, sexist, misogynistic, racist s**t,” the Grammy-nominee said. “Really, new levels. I’m no masochist so I’ll be back.”
The Smile singer has been open about losing her son following a painful labour six months into her pregnancy, revealing she suffered from post traumatic stress disorder after the tragedy. This prompted one Twitter user to respond: “Can I just ask, how did you get PTSD?”
