Twitter trolls targeted the singer, who is of Jamaican, Spanish and English descent, calling her a “monkey” after she got together with the Twilight film star.

But she told the Sunday Times Magazine she was most upset when trolls racially taunted one of her fans, who was dying of cancer.

Twigs, real name Tahliah Debrett Barnett, was replying to a friend of the fan who tweeted a picture of them at the hospital, when they were subjected to a barrage of online abuse.

She told the magazine: “They all started attacking her. Within 20 seconds it was just like ‘n*****, monkey, ugly, die b****,’ all this stuff on his feed.

“It broke my heart … this lady who is really sick and is probably going to die.”
