Robert Pattinson recently started dating again after his very public breakup with Kristen Stewart, first seen out with his with his new girlfriend, 26-year-old British singer-songwriter FKA twigs last month. FKA twigs (birth name Tahliah Debrett Barnett) is interracial — her father being Jamaican and her mother half-English and half-Spanish — so here’s your friendly reminder that Twilight fans are still psychotic little goblins because the young musician is now getting bullied online.

Ms. Twigs tweeted the following this weekend because of the overwhelming amount of racial harassment she’s received on Twitter since news broke last week that the couple were “officially an item.”

It may not be very much consolation, but for what it’s worth — anyone capable of spewing racism and hatred to a stranger online due to an obsession with an actor/movie franchise is probably not overall a very happy or well balanced person, and, in all likelihood, will probably die alone. So good job at finding something even worse than deranged Twilight fans, deranged racist Twilight fans.
