Fifth Harmony Singer Normani Kordei Announces Break From Social Media Due To Racism Team Curtains August 10, 2016 One member of Fifth Harmony has hit a sour note with social media. Singer, Normani Kordei announced this past weekend that she would be taking a break from twitter after being “racially cyber bullied.” This news comes after the ‘Work From Home’ singer spoke with Galore Magazine in a Facebook Live interview, where she was asked to say something nice about each of her band mates. When the time came to address lead singer, Camila Cabello, Normani paused and said “She is … let’s see. Camila. Very quirky. Yeah,[…] Very quirky. Cute.” Her response left many to believe that she was actually being shady. Despite dispelling the rumors of any girl group drama between she and fellow band member Camila, Kordei was bombarded with a mirage of hateful comments/tweets from fans of Cabello, most of which were racially charged. Having had enough of the attacks, Normani decided to take a break from twitter. Check out what she had to say after the jump: To my fans: pic.twitter.com/7yICp10G5Z — NormaniKordei (@NormaniKordei) August 7, 2016 “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. I give 110 percent on and off stage because I am true to myself and the artistry. We learn in life that evil spirits exist and people don’t always treat you fairly but you continue to love anyway. I have love and respect for all four of my bandmates whether you choose to believe it or not.” Celebrities such as Zendaya and Keke Palmer have even spoken out to support Normani Stay strong baby girl, so much love for you😘👏🏽👏🏽 https://t.co/N59jCEFSyW — Zendaya (@Zendaya) August 7, 2016 The sad part is that it's so common, that type of racially charged hate as black woman in this industry, you deserve so much more sis. — Zendaya (@Zendaya) August 7, 2016 It’s disappointing that this is our reality in 2016. We are Team Normani all the way and definitely want to see her come back and clap back when it comes to social media. Normani is such a beautiful representation for all women of color and as we move forward in the world we can only hope that this type of behavior doesn’t continue to prevail.
