Normani Kordei, 20-year-old singer from the Music Group Fifth Harmony, has decided to stay away from Twitter by quitting after she received horrendous comments from her critics. She posted a statement on her account-
“Over the past four years of being in the public eye I’ve learned to grow a thick skin to critics and those who may not like me. I’ve never been one to deny anyone of their opinions, but over the course of this last week and especially over the last 48 hours I’ve not just been cyber bullied, I’ve been racially cyber bullied with tweets and pictures so horrific and racially charged that I can’t subject myself any longer to the hate.”
She slammed the ‘horrific’ comments by writing, “I would like to address an issue that has been completely blown out of proportion. It is a shame that after four years together as a group I have to address foolishness manufactured by those that have absolutely no idea what goes on. I have shown nothing but commitment for the success of Fifth Harmony even promoting on my days off but yet I always find myself as the target of unjust hate and slander. It’s just not right.”
She further reveals, “I’m not the first black female celebrity to deal with this and I’m sure I won’t be the last. I want to take this moment to say Love goes much further than hate in this world. Hiding behind a computer and putting people down, especially for the color of their skin doesn’t make you cool, it makes you a coward!
“I have nothing but love for everyone, even my haters and I hope I can lead by example. I also want to thank Twitter for immediately jumping into action when they were alerted to the situation. I love you all!”
Hashtag, “#WeLoveYouNormani,” has been trending lately in Twitter and celebrities have been supporting her by tweeting comforting words.
