LILY Allen has launched a bizarre attack on “luvvie” Lawrence Fox after his Question Time racism row.
The singer said the actor “shouldn’t rant about things you don’t anything about” in a bizarre Instagram post.
She also moaned about being “sick to death” of “luvvies” like Fox who are “forcing their opinions on everybody else”.
It came after Fox’s appearance on BBCs Question Time where he criticised those who said the Duchess had been subjected to racism and instead claimed it was racist to be called a white, privileged male.
Rachel Boyle, an academic at Edge Hill University on Merseyside, was in the programs audience and addressed the British actor, saying: “It’s racism, she is a black woman, and she has been torn to pieces.”
Mr Fox shut the claim down, saying: “It’s not racism. We’re the most tolerant lovely country in Europe.
“It’s so easy to throw the card of racism at everybody… and it’s really starting to get boring now.”
Their exchange quickly became heated, and Ms Boyle asserted: “What worries me about your comment is you are a white privileged male.”
Rolling his eyes, Mr Fox sternly hit back: “I can’t help what I am, I was born like this, it’s an immutable characteristic.
“So to call me a white privileged male is to be racist. You’re being racist.”
The star of ITV drama Lewis has divided social media over his comments, with some hailing him as a ‘hero’ and others slamming him as ‘contemptuous’.
Among those outraged with his comments was British singer Lily Allen, who wasted no time in sharing her thoughts on Mr Fox with her 1.2 million Instagram followers.
She wrote: “Sick to death of luvvies like a Lawrence [sic] Fox going on TV and forcing their opinions on everybody else, when he’ll never have to deal with what normal people have to deal with in his gated community.
She went on: “BBC should be ashamed, this is not what we pay our TV liscence [sic] for.”
“Stick to acting mate. Instead of ranting about things you don’t know anything about.”
Following the Question Time episode, Mr Fox wrote on Twitter that his social media feed was “like Christmas come early” and added: “Speak truth to nonsense.”
Today, tweeting screenshots of Lily Allen’s Instagram stories to his 115,000 Twitter followers, he appeared to mock the singer.
He wrote: Lily Allen is the most stunningist and bravery artist in the whole wide
His post has since been liked almost 10,000 times and has attracted a strong of supportive comments.
He has ended a number of tweets with the same Stunning and brave hashtag, in what is thought to be a cynical nod at so-called political correctness.
