Kirstie Allsopp – Twitter backlash, Controversy

In September 2018, Kristie Allsopp told Channel 5's Jeremy Vine that she had smashed her children's iPads after they broke her rules about screen time! 

She revealed during her interview:

 "This is the first time I've said this publicly. In June I smashed my kids' iPads, not in a violent way. I actually banged them on the table leg. There is a game called Fortnite and another PUBG and I decided... we had made all sorts of rules and all sorts of times when we said you can't play them and all those rules got broken and in the end I said: 'Right that is it, I have to physically (break them)."

Some users applauded her actions while others did not think her actions were mature enough saying she should have donated it to others as many other “children in the world who go without such things" as their parents are not able to afford such luxury.

Following the backlash, Allsopp left Twitter! Presently, she is back on Twitter!
