Alison Moyet has left Twitter after a controversy surrounding transgender rights and fans are tweeting their reaction to the news.
The All Cried Out singer was quite active on the site, with her tweets often going viral with users.

WTF Next they’ll be saying little Johnny can’t smoke fags neither.
She left after signing a letter criticising LGBT charity Stonewall for supporting transgender rights.
The 17 signatories of the letter asked UK charity Stonewall to, “commit to fostering an atmosphere of respectful debate rather than demonizing as transphobic those who wish to discuss, or dissent from, Stonewall’s transgender policies.”
After backlash from the letter, Moyet tweeted an apology for any offense caused and revealed she was going to leave the social media platform.
Some fans, however, are sad to see the pop star go and have tweeted their upset over Moyet leaving.
I will certainly miss you, I have found your tweets inspired great debate. The hostility of twitter means unfortunately we can’t always say the things we want to say. I hope to see you back soon xx— Linda Riley (@LindaRiley8) October 4, 2018
