Fifth Harmony member Normani Kordei has quit Twitter after receiving disturbing racial abuse from trolls. 

Kordei took to Twitter with a final note to fans explaining her decision to leave, writing, "I've been racially cyberbullied with tweets and pictures so horrific and racially charged that I can't subject myself any longer to the hate."

"I’m not the first black female celebrity to deal with this and I’m sure I won’t be the last." Kordei said. "I want to take this moment to say Love goes much further than hate in this world. Hiding behind a computer and putting people down, especially for the color of their skin doesn’t make you cool, it makes you a coward!" The singer also thanked Twitter for jumping in immediately after they were alerted of the situation.

The abuse comes after rumors of discord within the group and on the heels of an interview that fans believe shows Kordei throwing shade at fellow Fifth Harmony member Camila Cabello.
