Controversial son of someone more famous deletes disgusting tweets
Giles Coren, the brother of the better-known Victoria and one of the better-known Alan, has been clinically and perfectly rightly taken apart on social media for two foul tweets about the death of the much-loved working-class journalist and writer Dawn Foster – apparently because she once mentioned he had a famous dad.
Coren first posted, then quickly deleted:
Within a few minutes, this had been replaced by the barely less disgusting:
Foster’s ‘crime’ was, apparently, this 2018 tweet – which now looks more accurate than ever:
Coren quickly trended on Twitter in an entirely negative fashion, as he, his privilege and his excuse for talent were dismantled:
The eviscerating responses are too numerous to list but can be viewed up-to-the-minute here.
Coren is no stranger to
being scum controversy. He has made abusive comments about Polish people, breached a privacy injunction and also was outed as having a second Twitter account under a false name – supposedly a Polish plumber – through which he accused of antisemitism people who criticised him.
He is a foul individual and clearly only as insecure about his ‘talents’ as he ought to be.
Dawn Foster died this week of a longstanding illness, aged only 33. Coren is not fit to lick her boots.
