  • Sinead O'Connor has converted to Islam and changed her name to Shuhada Davitt

Irish singer Sinead O'Connor (now Shuhada' Davitt) took to social media on Tuesday to express her disinterest in spending time with "white people". "Just as not all Muslims will treat you well", one user wrote, with another reminding her that "no one's ethnicity makes them disgusting, no matter which individuals you've encountered".

The 51-year-old "Nothing Compares 2 U" singer announced last month that converting to Islam "is the natural conclusion of any intelligent theologian's journey".

"Dear Sister, whoever is "teaching" you about Islam, seems to be trying to lead you astray".

Posting the comment - which she herself described as "so racist" - on Twitter today, Sinead said: "I'm terribly sorry".

O'Connor began her Twitter rant by apologizing for saying "something so racist", explaining she never thought it was something she could ever feel. In a tweet this morning, the singer revealed that she never wants to "spend time with white people again (if that's what non-Muslims are called)". Not for one moment, for any reason.

From there, she digresses on a range of topics, mostly revolving around the hypocrisy of Twitter, the danger of President Donald Trump, the ignorance of the American people, society's perceptions on Islam, and why women will "sing the devil to sleep".

While Davitt's Tweets generated a large amount of controversy from both fans and onlookers, she closed out her series of Tweets by noting how her critics will likely refer back to her previous struggles with mental illness.

O'Connor's most recent tweet on the matter read, "Final word. Then by all means, spank my ass and call me Fruity loops".
