LILY Allen has been slammed for glamorising drugs after sharing a story about accidentally taking ketamine at an awards bash on Twitter.

The 33-year-old singer from Hammersmith, west London, told her 5.9million followers how she was thrown out of the Glamour Awards after taking a line of what she "assumed was cocaine".

It turned out to be horse tranquilliser ketamine which has killed at least 93 people in the UK, according to Vice, though the real number could be much higher.

Some shocked social media users said they were "disappointed" that Allen, a role model to many young girls, was sharing the story publicly.

She was responding to an open question from New York Post journalist Brooke Rogers who asked for the "best reason you've been kicked out of an event".

Allen even shared two pictures of security guards passing her over a railing and putting her into a taxi at the 2008 event.

 Allen tweeted this in response to an open question asking people for the most embarrassing reason they have been chucked out of an event

Her tweet read: "Someone gave me a line of what I assumed to be cocaine... but it turned out to be ketamine.

"I was thrown out (passed over some railings) of the Glamour awards for being in a k-hole.

"They put me into an empty taxi and then the paps caught wind so my assistant shouted, 'go go go'."

She later explained how her assistant, who got separated in the chaos, followed her in another car alongside comedian Alan Carr.

Carr, 41, confirmed he was following with her brother Alfie, adding: "We somehow got there before her but then she was put straight to bed.

"I remember helping myself to a vodka and chatting with Alfie and @samsparro most of the night."

While Australian singer Sam Sparro described the night as "hilarious", many on Twitter weren't amused.

"Is this really something to glamorise / be proud of?" asked Amy G - to which Allen replied: "Probably not, do you have a point?"

Amy continued: "There are people responding to this with phrases like 'goals' and 'hilarious'... my point is that could have a damaging affect and glamorising drug taking could be dangerous."

"What a brilliant role model you are!" wrote AC. "I certainly wouldn’t want any child of mine to look up to you or be inspired by you."

While Andy Applewhite said: "How disappointing then that you tweet comments as earlier. Do you not even comprehend your role in many young girls lives.

"Tweet your loving thoughtful and generous moments NOT your flaws in future."
