FKA twigs was no holds barred when she detailed having been through racial bullying at the hands of ex-fiance Robert Pattinson's fans. For the unversed, the ex-couple started dating in 2014, got engaged a year later and eventually parted ways in 2017. During a recent appearance on Grounded with Louis Theroux podcast, twigs recalled how people called her the most hurtful, ignorant and horrible names on the planet.

"He [Pattinson] was their white Prince Charming, and they considered he should be with someone white and blond," FKA stated. Essentially claiming it to be "bullying," the 33-year-old singer confessed, via Just Jared, how if affected her psychologically and that it was "really deeply horrific" at a time, where she felt she couldn't really talk about it. If she were to have gone through it now, twigs feels she would have been able to talk about it and do some good with it. FKA isn't sure if it was to do with her age, the social climate or being Black from Cheltenham, from a low-income family and having to "genuinely work twice as hard at everything I do to get a seat at the table."

Referring to the fans' comments as "mean-spirited" and "deeply racist," FKA recalled, "Say if I was wearing a red dress, they would have a monkey in a red dress, or I was on a bike, they would find a monkey on a bike."

While at the time her confidence was affected due to the mean comments, twigs revealed that eventually, she learned to ignore the haters and just love herself. the Don't Judge Me singer concluded to Theroux that she now loves how she looks and is very confident.
