Imelda May has spoken out online against trolls who have been abusing her on Twitter.
Sharing to the social media platform she said; “Any chance @Twitter could cancel anonymous accounts and make these assholes/cowards who are trolling me put a name to their nasty?”
Earlier this year the 46 year old released a poem called You Don’t Get to Be Racist and Irish an it has received a phenomenal response. The poem which supports migrants, travellers, disabled people, the LGBTI+ community and marginalised women has been part of a national campaign.
Quotes from the powerful poem have also been displayed on billboards around the country.
However, due to the divisive nature of some of the poem, the singer-songwriter shared that she has received lots of abuse about it. One pose in particular accused Imelda of having “blood on her hands” and she shared;
“Reposting to give you an idea of what I’m getting daily since my anti-racist poem. This isn’t even the worst of it.”
“Thought I’d spare you those. @Twitter doesn’t care. You block them they open up another account and start again.”
