FKA Twigs details racist online abuse during Robert Pattinson relationship



FKA Twigs has described racist abuse she suffered online while she was in a relationship with R. Pattinson.
They began dating in 2014 and parted ways in 2017.

[TW for abuse]
Whatever she did at that time people would find pictures of monkeys and have her doing the same thing as the monkey. If she was wearing a red dress they would have a monkey in a red dress or she was on a bike they would find a monkey on a bike.


“I feel like if I was going through it now I would be able to talk about it and do some good with it. But I don’t know whether it was to do with my age or because of the social climate or being black and from Cheltenham and from a low income family, and having to genuinely work twice as hard at everything I do to get a seat at the table. People talk about black excellence but that is because we have to be excellent to be considered everage. I worked so, so, so, hard just to get a little seat at the table and then I got there and people just called me the most hurtful and ignorant names on the planet.”

“He was their white prince charming and I think they considered that he should definitely be with somebody white and blonde and not me."
