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.
