British singer-songwriter Anne-Marie has put the Ku Klux Klan and racists in general on blast in a series of tweets.
The “Don’t Leave Me Alone” songstress shared a number of passionate tweets to her 545,000 followers, using her platform to express her views.
“The KKK can really suck my d***. They really still out here? Dumb af,” the “Ciao Adios” songstress shared on Twitter.
“I am so sick of people being racist. Are you dumb?! Well, of course, you are. You are stupid. If you hate someone purely on the color of their skin you are actually thick,” she continued.
The tweets were met with thousands of likes and were engaged with many replies from those who agreed with her.
“PREACH IT GIRL,” one fan replied in capital letters.
“SAY IT LOUDER FOR THE PEOPLE IN THE BACK!!” another said.
“People are beautiful regardless of their skin color,” a user stated.
