The 17-year-old rapper, whose mother’s family are romany travellers, was last night on the receiving of cruel twitter taunts sparked by Channel 4 documentary series Big Fat Gypsy Weddings.
Yesterday’s episode of the hit show, which aims to give insight in to the closely-guarded gypsy community, touched upon the low life expectancy of travellers due to poor health care.
One Twitter user wrote: “Gypsy life expectancy is 50. That probably means we have another 33 years of Cher Lloyd.”
Another posted: “Ho I swear I just seen half ur fam on channel 4” and another said: “Shouldn’t you be preparing for your big fat gypsy wedding?”
But Cher took the insults on the chin, replying: “Keep chuckin those gypsy comments in, I’ll tarmac ya drive and trim ya hedges for ya if ya like? No shame in me :L”
The teenage pop star is currently working on her debut album with hip-hop producers The Runners and RedOne.
