FKA Twigs Details Horrible Racist Hate She Faced Just For Dating Robert Pattinson
FKA Twigs has a strong fan base who adores her and her music. However, she has had a rough past few years in both of her relationships.
Before she dated Shia Labeouf, she was engaged to Robert Pattinson.
Up until he was announced for the new Batman movie (and even right now), he was most notably known for being Edward from the Twilight saga movies.
Robert and his Twilight co-star, Kristen Stewart, dated for some years during and after the movies but had a very dramatic breakup when Kristen cheated with another man.
Kristen opened up about some of the intense hate, including death threats, she received from superfans of the movie.
When FKA and Robert started dating, she was hated only because of the color of her skin. She recently opened up about the racism she faced just for being in an interracial relationship with the coveted vampire actor.
‘It was really, really deeply horrific and I think it was at a time where I felt like I couldn’t really talk about it. If I was going through that now, I feel like I’d be able to talk about it, and do some good with it. But I don’t know whether it was because of my age or whether it was because of the social climate or whether it was because being Black … [but] people just called me the most hurtful and ignorant and horrible names under the planet.’
She went on to explain: ‘He was their white Prince Charming and they considered he should be with someone white and blonde and not me. Whatever I did at that time, people would find pictures of monkeys and have me doing the same thing as the monkeys.’
Unfortunately, the relationship she had with Shia Labeouf was no better. She revealed the abuse she suffered while she was with the actor which included being purposely exposed to an STD, physical harm, and even kidnapping at times.
Hopefully, the artist is able to sort out all if the horrible trauma in therapy.
