She’s temporarily quit over “new levels” of abuse.

LILY ALLEN HAS temporarily handed over control of her Twitter account after she was subjected to “the most disgusting, sexist, misogynistic, racist shit”.

The row stemmed from tweets Allen sent in which she said she replaced the words ‘immigrant’ or ‘Muslim’ with ‘pensioner’ in order to make a point about prejudice.

The tweets, interpreted by some as a bona fide attack on UK pensioners, led to a torrent of abuse culminating in some truly awful exchanges about the death of Allen’s baby son in 2010.

Allen handed over control of her Twitter account to ‘Dennis’ yesterday evening, citing “new levels” of trolling and abuse.

She has promised to return to her account today.
