Lily Allen has sparked a furious Twitter backlash after claiming she is unable to move back to the London flat she owns because her Italian tenants are claiming ‘diplomatic immunity’. She even claimed that she and her family will be homeless for Christmas! Only last year, she sold her £4.2million Cotswolds mansion.
The couple from Italy later branded the claims ridiculous and explained how they merely wanted an few extra days on their lease.
The singer was accused of hypocrisy for renting out the property to wealthy foreigners instead of taking in refugees as she had previously pledged.
In the now-deleted tweet, Lily Allen wrote: ‘Meant to be moving back into my flat this week, but my tenants just dropped that they can’t find anywhere to go up to their standards.
‘Then they said they’re diplomats and have diplomatic immunity and there’s nothing I can do about it.
‘So, who fancies a family of 3 for Xmas?’
Her tweet sparked angry responses, with many branding her a ‘champagne socialist’. Others started the sarcastic hashtag ‘PrayForLily’ to poke fun at the star.
Last year, on the BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire show, when asked by the presenter if she would take in an unaccompanied child, she replied: ‘100 per cent. Who wouldn’t?’
Lily Allen added: ‘These children are being displaced – [if] there’s room for people in my house, I’m going to take them in. I think anyone would.’
She also previously suggested housing poor people through the requisition of rich landlords’ empty properties.
Lily Allen has been very quick to forget her promise! She’s a professional virtue-signaller, at least while the cameras are near. But just like Bob Geldof and others, she reverts to her true self-interested self when the cameras have gone. She’s like another Bono, telling other people how to live and what to do with their money while making sure her money/assets are only used for her.
In the last few hours, she has set her Twitter account to private, so only approved followers can now see her tweets.
