‘You can’t say anything these days!’ Alan Carr reveals he quit Twitter three years ago amid cancel culture fears after being savaged by woke millennials over a takeaway CURRY

  • The star is back on the road with his postponed National Trinket tour and reflected on his social media absence while onstage in Leeds


Comedian Alan Carr has revealed he quit Twitter after social media snowflakes roasted him in a row over a common CURRY.

The Chatty Man star, 45, hasn’t posted on the platform for more than three years and he told an audience that he turned his back on the platform to avoid offending woke millennials and risk harming his career.

The comic said he feared falling victim to the toxic rise of cancel culture, a modern form of ostracism whereby individuals are excluded from social or professional circles for saying something that is deemed offensive.

He said: ‘It’s the cancel culture. You can’t say anything these days. That’s why I came from Twitter. 

‘I tweeted that my curry was 25 minutes late and I got people telling me “oooo, first world problems.”‘ 

The star is back on the road with his postponed National Trinket tour and reflected on his social media absence while onstage in Leeds.

He added: ‘Yeah, it was. I wasn’t like I’d just walked 25 miles for water or posted “had a shit harvest…just slaughtered my first born.”‘ 

Last year he also revealed during an interview on Good Morning Britain today with Ben Shephard and Ranvir Singh that he used to find the platform funny.

He explained: ‘It’s just something I thought that when I started was very fun. It felt like a bit like a community.

‘But then you moan, you moan and moan and it all just got like Speaker’s Corner towards the end. Everyone was just moaning.

‘And I worked for four years in a call centre so my days to listening people moaning are well over.’ 

Alan is also adamant he has no interest in becoming a dad after marrying husband Paul Drayton in January 2018. 

Setting the record straight on whether he planned a family, the funnyman quipped: ‘I am so not broody. I don’t have a fatherly bone in my body. I struggle with two dogs, I forget to feed them sometimes, let alone a baby.

‘Plus, everyone who has kids looks terrible. I see people and say, ‘Are you on crack?’ and they’re like, ‘No, I’ve got two kids’. Paul luckily isn’t into kids either.’
