Former Spice Girl Praises Margaret Thatcher, Deletes Tweet After Wave of Hate Messages
So much for girl power.
Former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell tweeted out a positive message regarding former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, who the singer once dubbed the "first Spice Girl," to honor the late leader's legacy earlier today.
Liberal social media users quickly engulfed Halliwell with hateful tweets, using the kind of language normally reserved for the worst of the worst.
Rather than stand up for Thatcher or defend her decision to salute her, Halliwell deleted the tweet and offered a meek apology for speaking her mind in the first place.
