RPattz and English singer-songwriter FKA Twigs are a thang. May we introduce to you the most heart-stoppingly cool couple…ever. Twigs, who we've been crushin' on for months and whose real name is Tahliah Barnett, has been dating Edward, I mean, um, Rob for a month now.
But, ever since the couple have decided to be seen out together more, FKA Twigs has been bombarded with vile online messages because, like they say, the way to a man's heart is through racist attacks on his current girlfriend...
Twigs took time to address the barrage of angry, racist tweets she's had to endure since the public learned she was dating RPattz. After being called a "black bitch" and a "monkey," the singer has had enough:
Her response to so much disgusting trash is the classiest thing I've seen all day.
What I hate most is that this story doesn't surprise me. At this point, Rob needs to come out publicly and say something in order to shut these horrible racists down. Personally, I find FKA Twigs beautiful, I love her music, and I think she's going to kick butt at the Grammys. But if her music sucked, this racist bullcrap still wouldn't be okay.
Do YOU think that Robert Pattinson now needs to step in and protect his girlfriend?
