Lorde just became one of the hottest trending topics on Twitter… and no, it’s not because of her four Grammy nominations! It’s for something far more personal.
Lorde is known to be super anti-mainstream and very vocal about her opinions on pop stars like Selena Gomez, Nicki Minaj, Drake, and more!
And now, some Beliebers and Directioners have made a target out of her, for allegedly calling Justin Bieber and the lads of One Direction ugly! Although there is no official quote of that anywhere, the 17-year-old New Zealand singer and her boyfriend James Lowe have been receiving so much hate on Twitter!
It’s no secret that internet trolls love throwing around hateful comments and racial slurs, and some of the vile tweets include, “’Justin Bieber and One Direction are ugly’ but Lorde your boyfriend looks like he should be delivering Chinese takeaway to my door!” and “What the f—is Lorde and that Chinese sort of ostrich boyfriend anyway.”
Even Tyler the Creator jumped in by posting a photo of Lorde and James with the caption, “Hhahahahahah!” Lorde responded, “Was this supposed to make me feel something?” and the Odd Future rapper slammed back, writing, “NOT AT ALL. IT MADE ME LAUGH.”
Another awful human being tweeted, “Come back to us when your boyfriend doesn’t look like PSY gone wrong.”
Whoa! What’s with all these racist remarks? Are people really acting like these two folks violated the social contract because they truly like each other? We’ve already seen so many interracial couples in Hollywood… like Shia Labeouf and Karolyn Pho, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez, and Zoe Saldana and Marco Perego.
What do you guys think about Lorde and her Asian boyfriend? It shouldn’t be any different that an Asian guy is dating a white girl. I fully support their relationship. Beliebers, Directioners, and people! Can’t we just all get along? Hit the comments below and tweet us @PopStopTV.
