Rita Ora has called for social media users to think before they type in the wake of the tragic death of Caroline Flack.
Caroline was just 40 years old when she took her own life at her East London home.
She had been awaiting trial for assault charges – that she had always denied – against her boyfriend Lewis Burton.
Burton had also publicly stated he would not support the CPS [Crown Prosecution Service] with the trial.
Taking to Instagram, Rita shared a string of pictures of herself and Rita along with a heartfelt caption.
Rita said: “Caroline you were a true light to everyone you met I can still hear you laugh right now, everyone knew it’s was your laugh! Oh here’s Flackie!
