Fifth Harmony star quits Twitter after receiving racist abuse

Fifth Harmony singer Normani Kordei has left Twitter after suffering racist abuse.

The singer took to the social networking platform on Sunday (August 7) to reveal her disgust at the "horrific" comments.

She said in a note: "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 cyberbullied with tweets and pictures so horrific and racially charged that I can't subject myself any longer to the hate."

Kordei rounded off her post by saying she has "nothing but love for everyone" - even her bullies.

The singer was recently forced to take to Twitter to deny that she had bad blood with bandmate Camila Cabello.

Fans attacked her online after she described the singer as "quirky" and "cute" in an interview, despite lavishing praise on the three other Fifth Harmony stars.
