In the tweet Ms Allen, pictured, wrote that she was unable to move back to her London flat because her tenants are claiming diplomatic immunity
Lily Allen has sparked a furious Twitter backlash after claiming she is unable to move back to the London flat she owns because her tenants are claiming 'diplomatic immunity'.
The row has seen the singer accused of 'profiteering' by renting out the property to wealthy foreigners instead of taking in refugees as she had previously pledged.
In the now-deleted tweet, Ms 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 plea comes after the mother-of-two – the daughter of actor Keith Allen and sister to Game of Thones star Alfie Allen – sold her £4.2million Cotswolds mansion last year after she was hit by a hefty tax bill.
Miss Allen’s tweet sparked a flurry of angry responses from fans, with many branding her a ‘champagne socialist’. Others started using the sarcastic hashtag ‘PrayForLily’ to poke fun at the star.
Twitter user Paul Watson commented: ‘Why do you have paying tenants in your flat, Lily, when you could be housing Syrian refugees?’ Eleanor Black wrote: ‘Welcome to the real world. One major difference, you’ve plenty money – go buy another house.’
Another user said: ‘Just sing outside their front door, that’ll get them shifted in under an hour.’
If we learn from our mistakes, why aint I a genius, If you educate the masses where's the advantage for the few?
