Lily Allen receives apology from soldier
Jul 12, 2012, 15:03 GMT
Lily Allen has received an apology from the British soldier who sent her a racially abusive message on twitter.
The 'Not Fair' singer reported 20-year-old Harry Wilson to his army bosses after he tweeted her a message reading 'just seen you bought s*** I meant adopted a child from Africa (sic).'
Lily - who is believed to be expecting her second child with husband Sam Cooper - was then subjected to a barrage of abuse for reporting the serviceman, but she now wants a line drawn under the row after Harry sent her a heartfelt apology.
She tweeted: '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.'
It seems Harry's apology arrived at the right time after Lily threatened to take a break from twitter earlier today because of the abusive messages she had received from 'trolls'.
She wrote: 'OK I'm leaving twitter for a few days, hmmmm maybe hours, we'll see. The stupidity of some people on here is astounding.'
Harry had claimed his comments were intended as a joke and 'harmless fun' before his twitter account was removed.
