(TRIGGER WARNING: Death wish, disturbing imagery & comments)
What caused the media to misread Normani's comments and fans to unleash this barrage of abominable, vile and deplorable behaviour to her? Was it really just because she called Camila cute and quirky?was Normani the victim of a misguided attempts to paint her as a bully because of something you and the media thought or wanted to hear?
In a recent interview with Galore Magazine, when asked to describe her fellow bandamtes, Normani described Camila as "very quirky and cute"
(Lauren, Dinah and Ally also described Camila as "cute" and "quirky" in the past. Camila calls herself that). She wore fairy wings, tweets like a relatable account and since the beginning, her whole shtick was "being the baby of the group". Quirky and cute it is
. Normani gave an answer she felt, an honest answer. She was incredibly respectful to Camila, unlike Camila's fans are to her. Or Camila is to Fifth Harmony as a brand, as a group.
Somehow this time, the media twisted and managed to make Normani look like the "angry black girl" using images like this one:( Collapse )( Collapse )
Hollywire also came out to defend Camila when some fans were calling her out for her shady solo deals, for calling her bandmates n**gers and still using the n-word a few months ago in a video.A lot of media were quick to call Normani compliments "shady". The same media who were quick to jump to Camila's defense because Normani called her cute and quirky are now mute when Normani is getting racially harassed.Normani adressed the situation in a letter she posted on Twitter
stating that "she has love and respect for all four of her bandmates"
. Somehow, some people (including ontd members) saw the letter as a way for Normani to get some attention (Because I guess a black women trying to adress a situation that's been blown out of proportion cannot be honnest? If she calls the media out, she's looking for attention. If she's not, it must be true or she's a coward. Simply put, she cannot win).
"if Lauren called C quirky and cute y'all would be having orgasms over camren being real"( Collapse )( Collapse )
As a result, Normani wrote a letter to her fans explaining why she's taking a break from twitter.let's be clear here: the assholes attacking her are not 5H fans. 90% of them are Camila's and Camren's fans. Normani leaving twitter because of the extreme racism disgust me. nobody took the initial attacks she's been enduring for years seriously because they were "trolls", belittling all the comments. she's been the victim of microagresions since the formation of the group, since she's 16. because people stayed silent and kept minimizing the problem, it only got worse. ignoring it allowed it to fester.
and I see some of you so quick to post anything negative about 5H (even completely innacurate stories) for a few extra comments and because hating on the girls is the new trend here. miss me we that shit and even don't bother commenting you two faces bitches.
