A Labour MP has hit back at trolls who called her a “slapper” and suggested she had been “banged over a wheelie bin” because she wore an off-the-shoulder dress in the Commons.
Shadow culture secretary Tracy Brabin, 58, has been subjected to abuse on Twitter after she wore the black dress while attending a debate in parliament.
Some of the insults included “looks like she’s on the morning after a walk of shame” while others called her a “tart”.
The former Coronation Street actress replied to a social media user who shared a picture of her wearing the outfit along with the caption: “Is this really appropriate attire for parliament?”
Ms Brabin replied to the tweet:
“Sorry I don’t have time to reply to all of you commenting on this but I can confirm I’m not….
“A slag, Hungover, A tart, About to breastfeed, A slapper, Drunk, Just been banged over a wheelie bin.
“Who knew people could get so emotional over a shoulder…”
