FKA Twigs Recalls “Horrifying Racism”

Most of the hateful comments came from ex fiance Robert Pattinson’s fanbase.

She was often compared to a monkey, and had the monkey emoji photoshopped over her face whenever she was seen with Robert Pattinson.

“He was their white Prince Charming and I think they considered that he should definitely be with somebody white and blonde and not me,” she said. “Whatever I did at that time, people would find pictures of monkeys and have me doing the same thing as the monkeys.”

“I remember it had this massive, dysmorphic effect on me for about six months to a year, where every time I saw my pictures and photographs I would think, ‘Gosh, I look like a monkey, and people are going to say I look like a monkey. So I need to really try and hide this monkey-ness that I have, because otherwise, people are gonna come for me about it,’”
