FKA Twigs: Stop Sending Me “Disgusting” Racist Messages!
FKA Twigs has been bombarded with vile online messages in recent days, and the singer has had enough. The performer, who is currently dating Robert Pattinson, took to Twitter on Sunday to speak out against the hate she’s receiving. “I am genuinely shocked and disgusted at the amount of racism that has been infecting my account the past week,” tweeted FKA Twigs. She went on, “Racism is unacceptable in the real world and it’s unacceptable online.”
Born Tahliah Debrett Barnett, the British star worked as a backup dancer before pursuing a singing career. Her debut album, LP1, was released in August. Earlier this month, it was shortlisted for the Mercury Prize, which honors the best British Album of the Year.
FKA Twigs was first linked to Pattinson over the summer. They were photographed engaging in a little PDA last week in Venice Beach.
