White Dee, the star of Benefits Street and Celebrity Big Brother, has moved away from the home made famous by the Channel 4 documentary series after her children suffered racial abuse online.I’m not sure how changing your physical address helps with online abuse, but then I’m not a dolescrounger who’s appeared on CBB, I guess …
Her manager, Barry Thomas (Ed: Seriously..? FFS!), confirmed to the Huffington Post UK that she had relocated from her house on James Turner Street in Birmingham to a new residence in the city.
"It just got a bit silly," he said. "The abuse has got bigger and bigger. She's been getting quite a lot of hateful stuff on Twitter, and it's clearly going to get a lot worse."The abuse ‘got bigger’? How? Did they start typing it in all caps?
Thomas went on to tell the publication that while White Dee is currently staying in a "secret bolthole", she doesn’t plan to leave James Turner Street permanently.
"I did try and get her to move five months ago, and told her it would only get worse," he said.
"But she didn't want to - she loves the street. Dee is Dee, she loves sitting on that front wall having a fag and drinking a cup of tea, talking to people."Well, it beats working…
"We've had people throw eggs at the house, and there's been a brick thrown on one occasion when she was here doing an interview.
"It's just the small proportion of nut-jobs and idiots – 90 per cent of people love her."Hurrah! I’m finally one of the 10%!
