James Blunt targets Twitter trolls with witty put downs

James Blunt has waged war on Twitter trolls by targeting them with witty one-liners.

The singer has been known to re-tweet and respond to negative comments, exposing them to his fans.

One such comment included "James Blunt just has an annoying face and a highly irritating voice," to which he replied, "And no mortgage."

Blunt told BBC Radio 5 live's Richard Bacon: "Twitter is a pretty ugly cycle of people just being horrid to each other... I'm just trying to have fun with it."
