Sinead’s fans filled the replies with love and support for the singer.

“Sinead, we don’t love you because you sing, we love you because you are a wonderful human being. You are probably one of the kindest people on the planet. I cannot imagine what you are going through. We love you,” one follower wrote.

“Sinead; I wish you could see yourself through our eyes, even for a minute,” another said.

“If I could take your pain away Sinead I would but I can’t. Please know you are loved and the world is a better place with you in it. Sending you love and strength,” a third said.
