Lily Allen posts scathing Instagram rant blaming social media for ‘spreading lies’

The singer, 34, deleted her Twitter account yesterday after a heated online bust up with Piers Morgan. Mr Morgan tweeted: “I think I speak for Britain when I say if @lilyallen doesn’t like it here, why doesn’t she f**k off?” The singer then signed off from the social media site before giving her reasons in a series of Instagram posts.

She said: “It’s been reported that I deleted my Twitter because I couldn’t handle the abuse and humiliation that I got in the wake of my comments.

“I deleted my Twitter because I really believe that these platforms have given a voice to the far right, and they use them to spread disinformation and lies, which will win them elections and ruin people’s lives.
