Lily Allen found herself in a racism row on New Year's Day, and revealed that she had been sexually assaulted by “white males”.

The Smile singer , who sparked nationwide controversy during an emotional trip to visit a migrant camp in Calais last year when she apologised “on behalf” of the country, but found herself in another clash this week.

Mother-of-two Lily clashed with former English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson over a newspaper article, in which the headline of identified the killer of the 39 people in a Turkish nightclub as a “migrant”.

Lily blasted the headline for calling the killer a “migrant” when his name and nationality at the time was not known.

Robinson waded in and dubbed the singer a “f****** idiot” and accused her of “virtue signalling”.

As other Twitter users got involved with their opinions, Lily and Robinson continued to exchange barbed comments.

Robinson revealed that he lived in a 'safe house because of Islam' and Lily was quick to ask if it was paid for by the taxpayer, which he denied.

Lily did however respond to a question about child sex exploitation, to which Robinson asked if she had “met or spoke to a victim of the Muslim grooming gangs”.

He also added: “You don't need to go Calais to hear horror stories.”

Lily replied: “I’ve only ever been sexually assaulted by white males so I feel slightly biased.”

Twitter users were shocked by Lily's tweet, as she was both applauded and lambasted for her honesty.

“If your trying to educate people that a race isn't at fault for everything why would you do that by blaming another race? @lilyallen #Racist (sic),” one critic wrote.

To which she responded: “Trying to point out that sexual deviants and murderers operate within every culture,regardless of religious persuasion”.

She later added: “People need to realise the reality of how white males and their attitudes towards our laws continue to threaten our values and communities.”
