Friday, 18th December 2020, 12:30 pm David Greig, currently artistic director of the Lyceum Theatre in Edinburgh, said it was “embarrassing” to find abusive comments directed at Len Pennie, aka Miss PunnyPennie, on social media. His comments come after the 21-year-old poet published a post on Twitter revealing the various insults she received this week including “trollop”, “harlot” and “pompous little minx.”
