James Arthur has quit Twitter after a number of rants and his account is now being looked after by his management team.
James Arthur has quit Twitter.
The 2012 'X Factor' winner has posted his last message on the site after posting a number of controversial comments and a rap song featuring a homophobic slur which got him into hot water.
Today (17.11.13) signed off with: ''#LOVE to my fans but I'm coming off twitter for good. HQ will be doing all my tweets from now on. PEACE!''
The 25-year-old apologised for calling DJ Micky Worthless a ''f***ing q****'' during a rap battle.
He said: ''I have to say I'm extremely disappointed in myself for being so naive with this diss track I made for an unknown rapper recently.
''I would just like to make it completely clear that it was not meant in anyway as a reference to homosexuality.
''I realise where the term has come from in meaning... But used in the context of the rap battles I have grown up with it has come to mean something completely different.. That said, I understand why it could cause offence and that definitely wasn't my intention.''
The 'You're Nobody 'Til Somebody Loves You' singer added that it wasn't a reflection of his true character and he has ''many, many gay friends''.
He left Twitter in the hands of his management after a number of rants, including one aimed at boyband One Direction.
James also had one last row with comedian Frankie Boyle, after the stand-up star tweeted: ''Sorry, I beef with playas only.
''I'll leave you to the battle rap scene and getting hit so hard your teeth go normal.''
The singer hit back, writing: ''Haha how original with the teeth thing. Note to self: sort teeth! Must sort teeth!! Your (sic) an old washed up nerd with poor jokes.''
