FKA Twigs is fed up with the ignorant and hurtful comments written on social media about the color of her skin and how she looks. The gorgeous, English singer-songwriter who is currently dating Robert Pattinson, lashed out via Twitter on Sunday night and addressed being a target for racist trolls.
“I am genuinely shocked and disgusted at the amount of racism that has been infecting my account the past week,” she wrote. “Racism is unacceptable in the real world and it’s unacceptable online.”
Social media users have called the singer a number of disgustingly offensive words, from “n*gger” to monkey, but according to the 26-year-old, whose father is Jamaican and whose mother is English and Spanish, racism is always something she’s dealt with. “I never really saw anything wrong with how I looked, it was more that certain people pointed things out to you about yourself. Either your hair’s different, or the color of your skin, or your features,” she said recently told Dazed magazine.
Twigs added, “Half of my life I’ve had people staring at me because they think I’m funny-looking and ugly,” Twigs added. “The other half of my life I’ve had people staring at me because they think I’m fascinating.”
Twigs and Robert, who met through mutual friends, made their romance public earlier this month.
Reality Show Curse Strikes Again? Lyrica Anderson & A1 May Be Searching For A Storyline, Not A Separation
Here we go again. Another reality TV couple bites the dust … or gets hella dramatic on social media in order to secure a new storyline. You decide!
Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood star Lyrica Anderson had everyone talking when she took to Snapchat to post this little message.
The singer/songwriter outed her husband A1 Bentley as a cheater and vowed that she was #single … all on Snapchat. We’re calling BS, and here’s why — Princess Love. This whole “my man is cheating so I’m outing him on social media” must be in the Love & Hip Hop playbook. Ray J’s wife pulled the same stunt just a few weeks ago and we all know how that ended … with them back together. Honestly, this happens every season, and every season we fall for it. Well, no more.
Lyrica, we know you just put out new music and you want everyone to hear it, but this ain’t the way, sis. And A1, nice try with the whole, “I’m going to delete all her pics on IG” move, but we’ve been here, done that. We not falling for these antics anymore so it would be really dope if y’all would stop playing games and just be a happy married couple. Save the forced drama for Joseline Hernandez.
