Lily Allen reports Twitter user to Ministry of Defense
Pop star Lily Allen has reported a man claiming to be a solider to the British Ministry of Defense after he allegedly sent her a racist message on Twitter.
NME reports the man, who said he was a sniper for the British army, tweeted the remark (which has since been removed) based on rumours that she had adopted a child: "All the best with your new family just seen you bought s*** I mean adopted a child from Africa."
The singer then alerted her followers and tweeted at the Ministry of Defense, "Do you condone (these) racist comments? He needs disciplining."
She added: "How do you report someone on here? That guy I retweeted should be banned."
An army spokesperson confirmed that the incident is under investigation: "Racism of any kind is completely unacceptable and the Army has a zero-tolerance approach to all forms of harassment and discrimination. We are aware of the alleged offensive comments and are investigating the matter. It would be inappropriate to comment further while this is ongoing."
Allen recently confirmed that she is pregnant with her second child and that she's back in the studio working on the follow-up to her 2009 album It's Not Me, It's You.
