Lily Allen and Katie Price Vs the Sunday Papers

Singer Lily Allen and model Katie Price both found themselves embroiled in legal battles last month after attacking British journalists on Twitter.

Firstly, Katie Nicholl infuriated Allen by writing a story in the Mail on Sunday that claimed the recently-bereaved singer was planning ‘…a New Year wedding to ease her baby grief.’

How are we sure the article offended Allen? Her Twitter response: ‘Katie Nichol you’re a lying c**t, leave me out of your shitty column, you know nothing.

‘There’s a time and a place for disrespectful, badly researched or just made up journalism. It’s not now,’ she added.

Later, Allen replaced the post with a slighter tamer version after Nicholl threatened legal action.

Even more bizarrely, the following week, Katie Price accused News of the World showbusiness editor Dan Wootton of making up a story and then found herself at the centre of legal row.

She later re-tweeted – accidentally she claims – a message from another user, which said: ‘If I was U, I’d start writing on Twitter Dan Wootton has HIV.’

Although Price apologized and deleted the offending message 90 minutes later, the newspaper is threatening to take her to court.

Surely, it’s absurd that journalists can write fictitious stories and then threaten legal action if they respond with an offensive tweet? But that’s how the cookie crumbles in modern media.
