A Twitter troll mocked Gary Barlow’s stillborn child – sparking outrage on the social media site.
The stream of abuse was handed out by a user called @MrKennethTong - the same name as a former Big Brother contestant.
It came after Barlow’s wife Dawn delivered a child stillborn in London last Saturday.
A series of tweets referenced lyrics from a number of Take That songs, many of them penned by 41-year-old Barlow.
He also posted a picture of a child’s coffin accompanied by more sickening comments.
fellow X Factor judge Louis Walsh was among those calling for Tong to be banned from the microblogging website.
He wrote in a tweet: “How DISGUSTING. This man should not be allowed on twitter. RETWEET this if you want him banned!”
He added: “Kenneth Tong shouldn’t be allowed to tweet such horrible things. His tweets to Gary Barlow are horrific & disrespectful to the lowest level.”
