Lewis Capaldi Hits Back After Being Shamed For Boozy On-Stage BRITs Appearances
Lewis Capaldi has hit back at an angry Twitter user who attempted to call him out for his boozy BRITs appearance.
The person wrote on Twitter: "We have an unhealthy relationship with alcohol in Scotland. This doesn't help." Both sentences were then repeated twice more in the post.
Twenty-three-year-old Capaldi responded, saying: "Imagine having a drink on my first night off in months after winning two Brit awards, can you believe it?!"
Backing the Scottish singer, one fan said: "In Portugal you drink to celebrate, you drink to mourn, you drink to cry, you drink to laugh, you drink on work and outside and people who don't drink alcohol are seen as weirdos. Maybe *we* have a drink problem."
Another added: "You tell them chief. The Scottish cringe is bad with some. Enjoy your awards & yer tipple," while a third supported him saying: "You keep doing what you do mate, enjoy your success and leave the lemon sucking to other folk."
Capaldi, who also performed at the star-studded event which took place at the O2 in London, took to the stage to pick up his first award for Best New Artist with a bottle of Red Stripe in his hand.

He made a speech - which ended up getting bleeped out by broadcasters - in which he said: "Thank you very f**king much, see you in a bit. Good night."
Taking home his award, Capaldi beat fellow nominees that included Dave, Aitch, Mabel and Sam Fender.
A bit later on in the night, it came to the award for Best Song and he was up again, this time taking to the stage while clutching a bottle of Buckfast.
This time, he decided to speak for a little longer than previously (we bet the ITV producers were delighted), saying: "Thanks very much.
"Many people think this song is about my ex-girlfriend who you can now see every night on Love Island.
"But it's about my grandmother who sadly passed away. I hope that ITV don't contact her to be on a reality TV show."
