Britain’s Got Talent’s David Walliams defends Tom Daley and Peter Waterfield after insults and threats
After Tom Daley and Peter Waterfield slipped up yesterday (on their fourth dive Waterfield kicked early and over-rotated, Daley kicked high) social media went into overdrive insulting and even threatening the pair.
Daley suffered the worst, and after sending him an abusive tweet which read ‘@TomDaley1994 you let your dad down i hope you know that,’ a 17-year-old was arrested for the abuse last night.
Daley received a lot of support after the slurs hit the news, with journalist Dan Wootton leading a campaign to get the vile abusers banned from Twitter.
Olympic ambassador David Walliams joined the growing chorus as well, tweeting:
“Tom Daley & Peter Waterfield did brilliantly in the Men’s 10m synchronised dive. They just missed out on a medal but they are still heroes!”
Tom’s support for his team-mate whose error may have cost them the Bronze Medal was inspirational. It showed Tom is a man and not a boy.”
Meanwhile, it was revealed this week that David new book “Ratburger” will be rushed released in September due to massive demand. It will be published on Wednesday September 19th, with its arrival celebrated with a week of promotions and events, dubbed ‘Walliams Week’.
