FKA twigs took time to address the barrage of angry, racist tweets she's had to endure since the public learned she was dating actor Robert Pattinson.
The couple has been dating for some time now, which has made her the target of a lot of intense attention from people who simply hate the fact that Pattinson is dating a living human person. Unfortunately, a lot of people (racists) are also lashing out because He Of the Messy Bed Head Hair is dating a person who is not white. On her Twitter on Sunday, the singer posted two tweets commenting about the horrifying racist insults lobbed at her recently.
Some of the Twitter accounts sending the tweets are racist "fans" of Pattinson's and some are just racists who don't seem to be fans of much anything in particular other than being racist. There are a lot of racist tweets also apparently coming from die-hard fans (or trolls pretending to be die-hard fans for the LULZ) of Kristen Stewart, Pattinson's ex and Twilight co-star. People are hurling racist attacks at a woman because they can't fantasize about Robsten if he's in a real life relationship with another woman. I officially no longer understand the world.This is just a small sample of a few people from the past few days:
FKA twigs addressed being the subject of cruel taunts in her childhood in an interview with Dazed. "People said horrible things about something I had no control of, which was tough," she said. "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 colour of your skin, or your features. Half of my life I've had people staring at me because they think I'm funny-looking and ugly. The other half of my life I've had people staring at me because they think I'm fascinating."
