Martin Lewis accused of 'lying' about his nine-year-old daughter in vicious attack by trolls | The Sun

MARTIN Lewis has been attacked by trolls accusing him of "lying" about his nine-year-old daughter.

The Money Saving Expert had shared a sweet conversation he'd had with his little girl, Sapphire, about politics.


But within just five minutes, disgusted Martin deleted the tweet after being bombarded with hurtful abuse.

He originally wrote: "Just been blown away by mini MSE (aged 9).

"I asked her if she knew what the government's job is.

"She simply replied: 'The government's job is to help shape the country.'"

Martin was quickly defended by fans, with one saying: "Take no notice Martin!. Some people will always be vindictive just for the fun of it. Post your earlier comment back up."

Another added: "That's so sad, I must admit I've noticed a lot more hateful and nasty replies in the last few weeks on a lot of tweets, if people could only be kind or just scroll by if it's not for them."
