Lily Allen Reports Twitter User To Ministry Of Defence

11 July 2012, 11:03

The 'Smile' star triggers an investigation after she says she received racist message on the social-networking site.

Lily Allen has contacted the Ministry of Defence after an apparent member of the army sent her a racist message on TWitter.

The singer reported the man, who claims on his account to be a serving solider, after she received the tweet earlier this week.

In his message, the man wrote that he had "just seen you bought s*** I meant adopted a child from Africa".

The Ministry of Defence has now launched an investigation into the matter, according to the Telegraph.

An Army spokesman said: "Racism of any kind is completely unacceptable and the Army has a zero-tolerance approach to all forms of harassment and discrimination.

Lily is currently in the recording studio working on a new album: 

"We are aware of the alleged offensive comments and are investigating the matter. It would be inappropriate to comment further while this is ongoing."

This morning (11th July), Lily has been re-tweeting comments from users who were upset that she reported the alleged army officer.

Meanwhile, Lily is reported to be expecting her second baby – although the star has yet to confirm the rumours.
