British singer Lily Allen has spoken of her shock after a magazine cover displaying Sir Elton John with his partner and his baby son was covered up in a supermarket.
Bosses at an Arkansas grocery store placed a plastic “Family Shield” over last week’s Us Weekly, which featured the Rocket Man and David Furnish showing off their little boy, Zachary.

A spokesperson for the Harps shop claimed the couple’s family photo was hidden after it sparked complaints from offended shoppers.

The move has prompted outrage from gay rights campaigners, and Allen has taken to her Twitter.com page to express her dismay.

Allen posts a link to an article about the issue, before writing: “Speechless about that Elton thing.”

The two singers famously fell out while appearing onstage at a London awards show in 2008 when Sir Elton criticized Allen for being tipsy and drinking onstage.

She later took aim at the veteran star in her Who’d Have Known music video, which sees an Elton lookalike kidnapped and forced to declare his love for her, but the pair has since settled its differences.
