Putting it behind her: Lily Allen has accepted an apology from a man who attacked her on Twitter
Lily Allen is no stranger to Twitter spats having been involved in a few in the last few years.
But her latest one with a man claiming to be a serving soldier has ended amicably after she accepted an apology from him along with a bunch of flowers.
The singer was embroiled in a row on the social network when she received a Tweet from a man called Harry Wilson who told the singer he had 'just seen you bought s**t I meant adopted a child from Africa'.
Allen, who Tweets under her married name @lilyrosecooper, reported the comment to the Ministry of Defence.
But this action opened her up to a heap of abuse from her followers and other Twitter users, who slammed her for reporting the message to the MoD.
One, called WilltheGer, said: 'What a rancid b**** you are! Trying to get a hero fired over banter.Of course you'd be ok if you didn't work with Daddy etc.'
Another added: 'We're doing a gig for Help The HEROES in Stranraer was wondering if you want to help…. Oh no wait you want them sacked..!'
And one called CallumAustin15 wrote: 'have you taken the hint that no one likes you and that your accusation is outrageous Hope harry sue's you for every penny'
But she also had a few people take her side with one who said: 'If what he said was misunderstood then that's for army to investigate. Your not sacking him, Get a grip Harry's friends'
And another added: 'Don't remember @lilyrosecooper being
linked with any adoption before squaddie t*** brought it up. Lots of
d**** seem to be missing that.'
Accepting his apology: Lily has asked her followers to 'move on' from the incident
Lily has deleted the offending text and yesterday she took to her page to announce: 'I have just received some flowers and a
hand written apology from Harry Wilson, which I accept.
'I hope we can
all now move on. Thank you.'
Two years ago, Lily got involved in a row with Cheryl Cole and last year, she took to her page to snub Piers Morgan's offer to appear on his Life Stories series.
