Telly star Alan Carr has revealed he quit Twitter after snowflakes roasted him in a row about a curry.
The Chatty Man star hasn’t posted on the platform for more than three years and he told an audience that he turned his back on the platform to avoid offending woke followers and risk harming his career.
The comic said he feared falling victim to the cancel culture.
He said: “It’s the cancel culture. You can’t say anything these days. That’s why I came from Twitter.
“I tweeted that my curry was 25 minutes late and I got people telling me ‘oooo, first world problems’.”
The star is back on the road with his postponed National Trinket tour and told fans Leeds: “Yeah, it was. I wasn’t like I’d just walked 25 miles for water or posted ‘had a shit harvest…just slaughtered my first born.’”
Last year he also revealed during an interview on Good Morning Britain with Ben Shephard and Ranvir Singh that he used to find the platform funny.
He explained: “It’s just something I thought that when I started was very fun. It felt like a bit like a community.
“But then you moan, you moan and moan and it all just got like Speaker’s Corner towards the end. Everyone was just moaning.
“And I worked for four years in a call centre so my days to listening people moaning are well over.”
