Adele’s baby boy is just two days old (and her parents are yet to release an official statement) but he has already become the subject of a Twitter troll campaign.
News that the “Rolling in the Deep” singer had given birth on Friday prompted a storm of congratulations on the social media network – but some individuals used it as an opportunity to publish hurtful messages.
Vanessa Bieber (@PerfFemale) tweeted: “Aw Adele gave birth to a baby : ) is it fat and handicapped lol just murder it already lol.”
Other tweets included “Adele better not steal Bruno's Grammy for LOOH or I swear I’ll go see her in the UK." And kill her baby” from Brunos BOKinjay.
