Professor Green has caused online controversy by claiming that bulimia is "an intelligent eating disorder" on Twitter.

In a tweet posted on July 28, the Hackney rapper said: "bulimia is quite an intelligent eating disorder… it'd be easier just to chew food and spit it out but still, you get to eat whatever you want and stay skinny. #winning"

He then added: "queue all the people who start telling me how insensitive i am and how bulimia jokes aren't funny yadda yadda yadda… i'm just trying to find a way to be in New York and not become a fat b*stard." He also quoted a line from Nas' 'Queens Get The Money', writing: "'i'm over they heads like a bulimic on a sea-saw'."

The comments made by the hip-hop star – real name Stephen Manderson – resulted in a number of his Twitter followers branding him 'sick' and 'disgusting', reports Metro, while clinical nurse Dan Round told The Sun: "There is a lot of stigma and misunderstanding surrounding eating disorders. They are not just about food and wanting to be thin".
