Honey G enrages X Factor fans as she tweets during Remembrance Sunday's two-minute silence


The X Factor's Honey G has enraged fans of the show as the rapper posted on Twitter during the two-minute silence on Remembrance Sunday.

While much of the country was keeping quiet for the silence, held annually at 11am on the Sunday nearest to November 11 to remember our fallen heroes and veterans who fought for the country, the X Factor contestant posted on the social networking site.

The divisive north London rapper wrote a plea for her followers to vote for her to keep her in the ITV programme for another week, with the time stamp on the post showing 11.01am on Sunday morning.

Followers of the performer - whose real name is Anna Georgette Gilford - condemned her for posting during the silence.

One wrote to her, in a series of messages: "Tweeting during the 2 minutes silence, how sick can you be. These men and women fought for the country and all you want is for people to vote for you when you don't even deserve it. But all you do is say "Honey G" right, can't even be silent to respect your country.

"You disgust me, you don't deserve to be on x factor, or in this country."

Others dubbed her "disgusting" and "insensitive" for the post, while another added: "@The_Honey_G so disrespectful tweeting for votes during the 2 minute silence #RemembranceSunday."

Later in the day, during the live X Factor results show, the remaining contestants joined together for a rendition of Andra Day's Rise Up in honour of Remembrance Sunday.

But Honey G was criticised online again for her "gangster moves" during the group performance, while others commented on her keeping her sunglasses firmly on her face throughout.

Honey G hit headlines once again over the weekend as she confessed to struggling with drug addiction.

In an interview with The Sun, she brushed off the criticism she has received over recent weeks, and said she has experimented with class A drugs.

"I'm hardcore and I'm totally real. I did class A drugs," she told the newspaper.

She said she has "struggled with addiction" but does "not do class A drugs any more".
