More about: Lorde
'Royals' chart-topper Lorde has become the victim of a hate campaign on Twitter, with fans of rival stars writing cruel messages regarding her, and her relationship with boyfriend James Lowe.
The attack was seemingly sparked last week (6 December, 2013), when Odd Future star Tyler, The Creator posted a photo of the couple on Instagram, with the caption 'Hhahahahahah', poking fun at the unflattering picture of the pair.
Since then, however, Lorde has faced a barrage of abuse from cruel Twitter users, many of whom have singled out Lowe's ethnicity for racist attacks. One Direction fans have been blamed in the most part, after Lorde reportedly called members of the boyband 'ugly' (which she didn't).
Some of the most offensive include the following:
Peeta Mellark: "your boyfriend can suck my doesnt exist dick he's so damn ugly ew you couldnt find better?"
Yourmother: "Oh wait, your boyfriend is 7 years different from you 0_0... Oh hell no, Lorde. You'd scored a scrawny asian sugardaddy."
dxisychainzayn: "Lorde: "All of One Direction are ugly."Come back to us when your boyfriend doesn't look like PSY gone wrong."
Stripper: "lorde can choke on her boyfriend's cock...oh but he doesn't have a cock big enough for that"
A number of images were also shared of Lorde and Lowe - as well as an image with One Direction singer Harry Styles stood next to an unknown Asian man.

Lorde is yet to respond to the online abuse, however what makes it all the more tragic and depressing that she never even called Justin Bieber or One Direction ugly in the first place. She actually called 1D 'overrated' and added: "I feel like the influences that are there in the industry for people my age, like Justin Bieber or whatever, are just not a very real depiction of what it's like to be a young person."
