Sinead snubs ‘dis­gust­ing white peo­ple’

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

ODD­BALL Sinead O’Con­nor has sparked out­rage on Twit­ter by claim­ing she no longer wants to spend time with “dis­gust­ing white peo­ple” – af­ter con­vert­ing to Is­lam.

The Ir­ish star ( above) – who now refers to her­self as Shuhada’ Davitt – apol­o­gised for her “racist” tweet, but said: “I never wanna spend time with white peo­ple again.”

She branded “white peo­ple” or “non-Mus­lims” dis­gust­ing, adding: “In­ter­est­ing to see if Twit­ter bans this.”

How­ever, the 51-year-old, who has bat­tled with her men­tal health over the years, was met with a fu­ri­ous back­lash from both Mus­lims and non-Mus­lims.

One user replied: “You’re dis­gust­ing too then, be­cause you’re are also white.”

And an­other wrote: “Don’t stereo­type – peo­ple are dif­fer­ent re­gard­less of colour!”
