Dappy In Trouble Over Down's Syndrome Tweet
Star in another controversy over reference to genetic disease...
Dappyhas been condemned over a tweet in which he insulted somebody with a reference to Down's Syndrome.
The former N-Dubz star lost his temper with a follower after a disagreement on social networking site Twitter, writing: "Ur a d**khead in your HOOD you've never BEEN KNOWN...I'll get your Face F***ed DOWN SYNDROME."
Although the message was deleted shortly afterwards, it has been attacked by the Down's Heart Group charity.
Information officer Sarah Smith told The Sun: "People with Down's syndrome have such a lot to offer.
"There will be a lot of Dappy's fans who have Down's syndrome who will not be happy he used that term as a form of abuse."
Dappy was also in the headlines recently after paying tribute to the killer of headmaster Philip Lawrence in a video - and later apologising for it.
