Amid rumours of their crumbling relationship, Robert Pattinson has hit out at racist FKA Twigs haters. In a recent interview to a British entertainment magazine, the 29-year-old actor expressed his anger on the harsh online abuse his fiancée has been facing.
When asked about her Twitter trolls, the actor said: “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. And it was, with like a million up votes.
“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.”
Pattinson started dating the Two Weeks singer in September 2014.
