Robert Pattinson Responds to Racism Against FKA twigs

Robert Pattinson is opening up in a new interview with NME about his fiancee FKA twigs and the racism she faces.

The 29-year-old actor didn’t say much specifically about twigs, but did say she is “just an amazing, amazing artist.”

Rob also opened up about his anger over the racist messages that his love receives.

“I was talking to my dad about this and I bet him that if he looked up Nelson Mandela‘s funeral on YouTube, the first comment would be a racist one,” Rob said. “And it was, with like a million upvotes. What I don’t get is why. I think it’s because most normal people are not commenters – I’ve never met anyone who’s left a comment on anything. It’s just demons who live in basements. You have this weird thing where you end up trying to fight against this faceless blob, where the more you hate it, the bigger it gets, because it’s all in your head.”

    No, try again. If the opposite were true , you’d be saying “heard but not seen”. Give it up.

    He said he has crazies like you and this other chump following him around everywhere and online. That was the reason he gave and I believe him.
