Kerry Katona's daughter slams 'disgusting' Fathers4Justice for claiming singer 'has blood on her hands' after ex-husband George Kay's death
Campaigners Fathers4Justice faced criticism from Kerry Katona's daughter after they claimed the former Atomic Kitten star had "blood on her hands" after the death of her former husband George Kay.
The 39-year-old rugby star died from an apparent drug overdose on Saturday, Daily Mail reports. He was married to Katona from 2014 to 2017.
Fathers4Justice tweeted at the mother-of-five on Sunday, saying she had "blood on her hands" in connection with Kay's death, leaving several social media users furious.
"Tragic news about the passing of George Kay who came to Fathers4Justice for help. He was heartbroken after @KerryKatona7 denied him access to daughter Dylan-Jorge," the tweet read. "Katona's not 'heartbroken'. She has blood on her hands. Matt O'C #RIP"
In addition to the aforementioned tweet, the campaigners also posted a letter claiming Kay desperately wanted to see his daughter Dylan-Jorge, 5, but was repeatedly denied.
In response, Katona's daughter Molly, 17, criticized the controversial tweet, calling it "disgusting" and "extremely insensitive."
"I suggest take this tweet down, how dare you make statements this disgusting at such a vulnerable time, your accusations are inaccurate and extremely insensitive," she wrote.
"I truly hope you never find yourself in this kind of situation. Vile words from a vile person you should be ashamed," she added.
Fans also chimed in to criticize Fathers4Justice, urging them to take down the tweet.
"What an awful thing to say blood on her hands, disgusting comment," one wrote.
"Wow I'm no fan but that is harsh tweet to make," another commented.
Another Twitter user said, "This tweet should be removed immediately...what a nasty, horrible thing to say and tarnishes the reputation of your organization! He was a troubled man, clearly. I don't doubt he was heartbroken but to blame his ex who knew the extent of his troubles is horrid."
In a conversation with The Sun, Fathers4Justice founder Matt O'Connor said: "The last time I spoke to George he was in a bad way. George was clearly unwell but the heartbreak of not seeing his daughter will have exacerbated the problem. Your mental state is going to suffer. When you're alive but can't see your children it's like a living bereavement. It's a tragedy for his daughter."
Katona's Instagram was inundated with condolences from fans after she posted a video of her daughter dancing to 'Heaven' the day after Kay's death.
Five-year-old Dylan Jorge was seen moving to the emotional number by Todrick Hall who sings about being "here today and gone tomorrow."
Kay, 39, was pronounced dead upon arrival at a hospital on Saturday. He had had a long history of drug abuse.
That said, it is unclear whether the youngster knew her father had died when the video was being recorded.
