Lipa told ITV News: “It feels like out in the open we’re very much pro-women, supporting each other, looking after each other, sisterhood, and then there’s kind of a darker side when you go on social media.

“It feels like the same people that are preaching for all this equality and looking after each other it doesn’t feel so equal online.

“It always feels like because people can hide behind a computer screen they can also say whatever they want.”

The Brit Award-winner added that some are “very hypocritical” for making public proclamations in support for women, but then go online to make comparisons between two women.
