It was reported that UK singer and DJ Boy George had quit Twitter after the service reportedly failed to help the star after a string of homophobic attacks on the microblogging site on the 23rd April.
Twitter has yet to respond to the matter, however, we can confirm that THEGAYUK has put in a formal request for a comment on homophobic abuse on the site.
In a tweet the Culture Club singer and DJ said:
“I’ve taken my homophobic spam issue to my lawyers and the police now!! Someone is going to get done!! Don’t let it be you!!”
Boy George has over 200,000 followers on the service.
