Lily Allen’s Twitter account appears to have been deleted after she claimed Boris Johnson’s general election victory is down to “racism” in Britain.

The singer posted a series of social media posts condemning the Conservatives’ victory on Friday (13 December) following a disastrous night for Labour.

Good Morning Britain co-presenter Morgan responded to a news article write-up of Allen’s comments on Twitter, writing: “I think I speak for Britain when I say if @lilyallen doesn’t like it here, why doesn’t she f*** off?”

On Instagram, Allen had written: “Some say it was Brexit, some day it was Jeremy [Corbyn], personally, and I know no one wants to hear it, I think that racism and misogyny runs so so deep in this country and that Boris won because of his attitude towards those things and not in spite of them.”

In tweets, Allen said greater attention should be paid to “unchecked targeted bespoke propaganda”, adding: “We need to start taking this seriously.”

After somebody replied calling her a “privilege-denying clown”, Allen fired back: “Oh f*** off I shout out my privilege every five mins. It’s because of my privilege and proximity to it that I know what inherently greedy c***s we all are. I KEEP TRYING TO TELL YOU.”

While her Twitter account is not active, with the message “This account doesn’t exist” appearing on her page, Allen’s Instagram is still up and running.

The singer’s last Instagram story reads: “So f***ing exhausted by the f***ry. People are so nasty.”
