Robert Pattinson Girlfriend FKA Twigs Harassed with Racist Tweets
Musician FKA Twigs spoke to Rolling Stone recently about the hateful, racist comments she received on Twitter, mostly from ignorant Twihards upset about her relationship with boyfriend Robert Pattinson. The 26-year-old singer and performer responded to the obscene messages with her own anti-racist statement: "I am genuinely shocked and disgusted at the amount of racism that has been infecting my account the past week. Racism is unacceptable in the real world and it's unacceptable online."
Although that didn’t stem the tide of disgusting and offensive messages, the singer took a more effective step recently, by deleting both Instagram and Twitter from her phone. She suggested others follow suit, saying that removing yourself from social media has several upsides. “[Y]ou start reading books more and you start texting your mom more and your life goes back to normal."
The British singer’s most recent album, LP1, was released in August of this year.
