Less than a fortnight ago, Sinead O'Connor revealed that she has converted to Islam, changing her name to Shuhada' Davitt.
Now, the Irish singer-songwriter has announced that she doesn't want to spend any more time with 'disgusting' white people.
While she was tweeting about her practice of Islam, the 51-year-old said something which she admitted was 'so racist I never thought my soul could ever feel it'.
I'm terribly sorry. What I'm about to say is something so racist I never thought my soul could ever feel it. But truly I never wanna spend time with white people again (if that's what non-muslims are called). Not for one moment, for any reason. They are disgusting.

Many people responded to the 'Nothing Compares 2U' singer.
One said: "Don't apologise if it's how you feel. Although try to remember there's good and bad in all walks of life regardless of ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation etc. I hope you find peace without hating the other.. that's where all problems begin."
Another added: "Wow. Way to lump an entire race of people into one sweeping category. I thought better of you than that. I just sang your praises recently. So disappointed."
And, offering a helping hand, a third commented: "Not all non-Muslims will mistreat you. Just as not all Muslims will treat you well. As a revert myself (over 22 years), I have experienced prejudice from Muslims who have very narrow minded views about reverts.
"Don't give up on ppl. This is all new to you. Remember, our speech and actions are a Dawah- we LIVE Islam we don't segregate ourselves from different races or beliefs."
She followed the tweet up with another: "Interesting to see if Twitter bans this when it allows people like Trump and Milbank spew the satanic filth upon even my country."
Before adding: "Forgive me. Sometimes the Lord needs dirty workers ; ) #NotAsFuckinCrazyAsSheLooks ; )"
According to the Metro, Sinead was ordained as a priest by the Irish Orthodox Catholic and Apostolic Church in the late 1990s, and practised Christianity for years.
She confirmed to the Daily Mail that she would be collaborating with Ronnie Wood from the Rolling Stones, Irish actor Cillian Murphy from Peaky Blinders, Pink Floyd's Nick Mason and singer Imelda May for a new EP.
The EP, One More Yard, will commemorate the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day.
According to the MailOnline, the song is inspired by around 90 letters home from young Irish soldier called Lieutenant Michael Thomas Wall, who was killed at Flanders Fields during the conflict, which ran from 1914-1918.
It also takes words from other soldiers' letters which used the phrase.
