West London singer Lily Allen claims a black cab driver refused to let her in his taxi before telling her "find an immigrant to drive you you stupid tart".
And on Friday (October 28) the Sheezus artist, who reportedly lives in Brent, took to Twitter to say that a black cab driver refused her service when she was out with her kids following the fallout.
She said the driver told her: "Find an immigrant to drive you you stupid tart."
She then added: "Having lived a life of privilege, that interaction has given me a tiny glimpse of what it feels like to be discriminated against".
And just moments later, she tweeted to say: "There is so much work to be done. But we can do it.
"Let's stamp out this stupid horrible ignorance together. #takeourcountryback."
She then faced accusations of deceit, with one person asking her why she did not record the number plate.
But the musician, who faced a seven-year stalking ordeal before a man was convicted, said this was not possible because she "had both my hands full with children, couldn't get to my phone fast enough."
Steve McNamara, general secretary of the Licensed Taxi Drivers Association, said: "The Licensed Taxi Drivers Association (LTDA) represents 11,000 black cab drivers – about half of those in London.
"Whilst it is not clear whether the driver in question was an LTDA member, we take any allegation such as this extremely seriously and would condemn any cabbie who treats anyone with such disrespect and uses abusive language in this way.
"The driver in question has put their license in jeopardy with this appalling behaviour, and we would urge TfL as the regulator for our industry to undertake an investigation."
