Lily Allen has accepted an apology from the soldier she reported to the Ministry Of Defence over what she believed to be a racist remark made on Twitter.
Harry Wilson was investigated by his bosses after making a remark directly to Allen over rumours she was due to adopt a child from Africa. However, the incident appears to be over after Wilson made his apology.
Posting online this afternoon (July 12) Allen wrote: "I have just received some flowers and a hand written apology from Harry Wilson, which I accept. I hope we can all now move on. Thank you."
The whole incident started after Wilson originally Tweeted: "All the best with your new family just seen you bought s**t I mean adopted a child from Africa."
Lily Allen notified the Army online, in a tweet which has now been deleted, saying: "Do you condone (these) racist comments? He needs disciplining."
Issuing a statement earlier in the week, the MoD said: "Racism of any kind is completely unacceptable and the Army has a zero-tolerance approach to all forms of harassment and discrimination. We are aware of the alleged offensive comments and are investigating the matter. It would be inappropriate to comment further while this is ongoing."
