Fifth Harmony Star Takes Twitter Hiatus After Racial Abuse

Published: Sunday 7th Aug 2016 by Sam

After taking trolls to task yesterday, Normani Kordei has reached her boiling point.

The Fifth Harmony star has been subject to an onslaught of vile comments from cyber-bullies following unfounded rumors of a rift with bandmate Camila Cabello.

Indeed, despite the latter actually vouching for her group member, the negative comments persisted. Many of which were of the racist persuasion.

In an open letter to fans, 20-year-old Normani announced that the severity of the situation has left her no choice but to take a break from Twitter.

Her words await below…

Sigh.

Some may be quick to cite the “artists should have thick skin” line, but the fact folk can fix their fingers to type racist comments (and think it OK) is both sad and alarming. There’s no excuse or justification. At all.

The news comes after ‘Ghostbusters’ actress and comedienne Leslie Jones took a temporary hiatus from social media last month after also being racially insulted.

UPDATE: Here’s what Camila had to say in full:

i stand by the words “love only”, meaning I won’t tolerate on my timeline any kind of hate, racism, or discrimination towards ANYONE. period

You don’t have to hate on somebody else to support me- I don’t appreciate it and it’s not what I’m about.. Be kind or move on.

I never go on rants like that but there’s so much cruel stuff going on in the world right now- let’s be part of the healing, not the problem.

darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.

Your thoughts?

    This is a hot damn mess. The darker the skin, the more disproportionately hated you become. It sucks. But I love Normani (even though I think 5H is a corny group). I just think she’s gorgeous and the best performer. I hope things go better for her and she can just have a very successful solo career. Those hoez are holding her back.

    It’s the internet. If all you can call me is a racial slur that is hundreds of years old, then you lost already. That’s only a surface attack. Everyone is different, but I think the best way is to not see it or at least not let them know you read it. Twitter is just a joke itself, everyone is just trying to crack jokes for retweets and followers. How sad?

    • ???????Chile, take this “Itty Bitty Piggy” to the market and make sure you hold her hand while crossing the street!??????? August 7, 2016

        He look Mexican here. Like he was Imitator Tard’s navigator when him and his family swam across to America.

      • HailLegendBeysus August 7, 2016

        OOPS!!! CLOCK A TON!!!!

      • Mark111 /.\ August 7, 2016

        Where’s the racial slurs?

      • Kiii August 7, 2016

        i can’t find it but i saw you called matt “dog eater” or something along those lines, don’t act like you didn’t

      • Kiii August 7, 2016

        Stop trying to play this off, your game been peeped

      • Mark111 /.\ August 7, 2016

        Never call Lil Kim a dog eater. In fact I never call anyone that. Why? BC it’s a same ass dig. You dug up old commets, yet non proved your argument, meaning you have none. So take the L and run while you can. Or find the old comments of me calling them racial slurs.

      • Kiii August 7, 2016

        I didn’t say racial slurs, that was YOUR dumbass that did so can try to evade what i said which was RACIST SH!T. Take YOUR L and sit the f*** down with your pathetic ass

      • Mark111 /.\ August 7, 2016

        “is that why you’re always saying racist s*** to @abel minaj and matt?”
        .
        Making fun of one’s poor face job and the other’s nationality does not = racist comments. And I pointed that out and you went on to find old comments with no proof of me calling them racial slurs. You know you messed up and have nothing, take the L with pride and leave. 🙂

      • Um. August 7, 2016

        Associating a certain job with a specific race is racist. I’m sure you also found Kelly Osbourne’s comments about Mexicans cleaning toilets non-racist too, right? But never mind your racist ways that we all have witnessed on multiple occassions, Are you aware that racist comments do not have to contain racial slurs? Or have you no idea what racism is and how it’s perpetuated??

    • TurkeyNoodleSavage August 7, 2016

      Agreed , it’s not only on Twitter tho , it’s all over the net including this site ! people say some of the most stupidest and hurtful things just to get ” likes ” …it’s so sad . ! I wouldn’t give a damn what anyone had to say about me . especially if I’m living my dream .

  4. Usual Observer August 7, 2016

    She’s a beautiful girl. Stay strong, doll!

  5. Rey August 7, 2016

    It’s a shame the entire group didn’t show solidarity and take a break from Twitter to support their music sister…

    • Ces August 8, 2016

      The girls Did!!! Lauren did!!!! Check her media on twitter

  6. No favs, just here for the music August 7, 2016

    She’s absolutely gorgeous and my favorite in the group. This whole situation is just so f****** disgusting and vile. Honestly all racists need to be euthanized and that will clean up this world considerably. Normani has so much class what a sweetheart

  7. Danzou August 7, 2016

    Ok but yall do it too everyday in these comments so don’t come with all this fake deepness please. These comments can really be a cess pool of thought. Keep it.

    • IWISHABITCHWOULD August 8, 2016

      I agree! the comments on here over everybody’s “Fav” are some of the worst I read online, but now everybody has compassion and understanding. That s*** is hella fake. Either change a 100% or save your fake sympathy.

  8. FC/JC August 7, 2016

    So disgusting…

  9. SMH August 7, 2016

    I called it way back in the beginning. Now where’s all the delusional wussies that were saying not even 24 hours ago in the first post that this “wasn’t about race” and “her skin has nothing to do with it”?

  10. stardom August 7, 2016

    Even Camilla didn’t say there was no bad blood btw them(or at least pretend).
    I feel the group don’t have good personal relationship with each other especially towards Camilla as she does too much but they all should have commented on the situation.

  11. ow Reddish tran ivy blobukz Need UK timely Ukuyiji August 7, 2016

    This is a hot damn mess

  12. Brazen Beauty August 8, 2016

    I am so sick and tired of these insecure racist, and twitter bullies. I am so fed up with the killing of our people by all white racist police. Now they have resorted to killing mothers and children (Baltimore). So why is it always a bunch of white and Hispanic police officers on hand during these senseless murders?

    • Fancy BISH August 8, 2016

      Speak that truth!

  13. sleazy August 8, 2016
