AdeleAdele has sparked an online backlash over her recent comments surrounding the amount of tax she has to pay.

In a recent interview with Q, the 23-year-old ranted about having to hand over 50 percent of her earnings to the tax man.

She said (via Metro), "I'm mortified to have to pay 50 percent! [While] I use the NHS, I can't use public transport any more. Trains are always late, most state schools are s**t and I've gotta give you, like, four million quid -- are you having a laugh?"

She added, 'When I got my tax bill in from '19' [her debut album], I was ready to go and buy a gun and randomly open fire."

However, that attitude isn't sitting well online, with many taking to Twitter to voice their disgust.
