Lily Allen reports 'racist' Twitter user to Ministry of Defence


The Ministry of Defence is investigating after singer Lily Allen reported an online spat with a man claiming to be a serving soldier.

The row started after a Twitter user, who said in his profile he was in the Army, told the singer he had "just seen you bought shit I meant adopted a child from Africa".

Allen, who is a regular tweeter under her married name lilyrosecooper, reported the comment to the MoD.
