After Example’s no-show at Grad Ball due to illness, it’s not surprising that some students took to social media to express their disappointment. But what might not have been expected was Example’s bombardment of rude tweets in response.

Firstly, he apologised to students at the University in a rather calm and collected tweet

But this soon turned nasty.

Example has in fact since deleted many of the abusive tweets, for example those in which he told students to f**k off, but the problem with social media is that posts can be saved, even if they’ve then been deleted.

What a nice guy!

Sam Ling, Union President, made a statement about the possibility of a refund or some sort of compensation, as students paid £49, only for the headline act to pull a sickie.

It’s not exactly professional behaviour from an A-List celebrity is it? What do you make of Example’s twitter backlash? Did Example tweet you? Let us know below.
