Robert Pattinson‘s rumored girlfriend, singer FKA twigs, is reporting a disturbing “amount of racism” being hurled at her through Twitter comments since the couple’s relationship gained publicity earlier this month.
“I am genuinely shocked and disgusted at the amount of racism that has been infecting my account the past week,” the 26-year-old English singer-songwriter, whose real name is Tahliah Debrett Barnett, tweeted Sunday. “Racism is unacceptable in the real world and it’s unacceptable online.”
The offensive tweets appear to be coming largely from Pattinson’s fans, as well as those of Kristen Stewart, the “Twilight” co-star he famously dated for years before Stewart’s public cheating scandal with “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders ended their relationship.
Twigs, a former backup dancer, released her first full album, “LP1,” in August.
