Lily Allen has decided to quit Twitter after online trolls attacked her over the death of her son.
The singer said she had post-traumatic stress disorder after her son died while she was giving birth to him in 2010.
Lily was targeted by trolls when she responded to a fan who asked when her mental health issues began.
She replied: ‘when I lay in a hospital bed with my deceased son stuck between my legs halfway out my body for 10 hours’.
One Twitter user replied: ‘are you saying that a British hospital left you, with a dead baby “stuck between your legs” for 10 hours? Liar!’
Another user said: ‘Not to be a d**k but I very highly doubt it was 10 hours’. Lily replied: ‘You are a d**k. And it was. I was there, you weren’t.’
A further user wrote: ‘maybe if you didn’t pump your body full of drugs you wouldn’t have miscarried’.
She also posted a since-deleted Twitter poll asking: ’15-35 year olds who do you feel more marginalised by?’
Lily later tweeted: ‘My timeline is full of the most disgusting, sexist, misogynistic, racist s**t. Really, new levels. I’m no masochist so I’ll be back.’
On Friday, a message was posted from the singer’s account which read: ‘Hi, I’m Dennis, I’ll be looking after lily’s twitter for a while. I can only communicate in gif form, and I’m going on a hate blocking spree.’
It’s not known if Dennis is a friend of Lily’s or Lily herself under a different persona.
Since leaving the social media site, she has been chilling out with her daughters Ethel and Marnie as a ‘wake up call’.
Lily has previously spoken about a song she wrote about her stillborn son, called Something’s Not Right.
‘I delivered a beautiful baby boy, but sadly he didn’t make it,’ she said at the time.
Lily Allen’s rep has been contacted for comment.
