Ex-Love Island star Danny Williams has revealed that he's contacted the police over a series of racist death threats made against him.

The 21-year-old model commented that the abuse he's been receiving has been "worse than you can imagine."

He told OK! Magazine: “I’ve had death threats, racism, people threatening to come ‘round to my house and hurt my family."

He continued; “As worse as you can imagine, I’ve had it all. And it’s still happening today. Daily.

“When it’s racist and it’s threats and you have to get the police involved that’s next level. And it got to that extent."

Social media has been a cesspit for death threats targeting reality stars;

“I'm going to bed at night I go on my phone like everybody else does, and you see some of the people saying they're going to come and kill me or, 'You're a horrible sick f' and whatever.”

He added: “Everyone’s entitled to their opinions, but there’s never an excuse for that kind of stuff. It’s horrible.”

Danny became an infamous Love Island character known as the 'travel agent', as every girl he liked ended up on a plane home.

His relationship with Jourdan Riane appears to be getting stronger by the day, at least.

During an interview on Capital Breakfast with hosts Roman Kemp and Vick Hope, the pair announced that they'd become official.

Roman quizzed the pair on their relationship status, asking: "Have you dropped the girlfriend/boyfriend question?"

Jourdan replied with a teasing comment; "Potentially…" However, Danny then confirmed: "Yeah we have, it's official."

Azealia Banks is a woman of controversy, and her career has arguably been stalled and stopped multiple times because of her numerous spats with famous faces.

While Paddy Power was taking bets on whether or not the Harlem rapper would even play her set at The Academy last night, the 27-year-old miraculously showed up onstage.

She dedicated her gig to "All the beautiful Irish women", much to the amusement of the crowd of beloved fans who admitted that their rap hero was 'problematic', but has such good tunes you forget about it.

Banks hit the headlines yesterday after an incident on board a flight from Gatwick to Dublin airport, which led to the artist having to take the ferry to Dublin.

She ended up having quite the rant on board the Aer Lingus flight, calling Irish women 'ugly' and launching into a tirade about our Celtic people.

“I’ve had enough of y’all oompa-loompa looking, spray-tanned, crazy-looking b****es tonight,” she raged, which was characteristic of her numerous feuds with other musicians.

“The girls have scurvy, they’re vitamin deficient, need some calcium tablets.”

Reviews of the show claim the rapper brought an impressive set to her debut Irish show, channelling talent which is arguably gone to waste as her Twitter arguments have only done her damage.

Fans know her attitude well enough to dispel any negative thoughts of her social media ranting, choosing instead to focus on her musical prowess, surprisingly soulful voice and explosive rap verses.

“I’m a rude b**ch nigga, what are you made up of?” she spits on her classic hit, 212.

The 'Queen of Ireland' doesn't make any effort to cover up her personality, so take her with a pinch of salt but don't try to deny that the gal has talent.

She's one-fifth of one of the hottest bands of the moment, but Normani Kordei has now quit social media following an outburst of disgusting, racist abuse. 

The Fifth Harmony singer shared a lengthy message with her fans and revealed she's been bombarded with unwarranted message in recent days.

"Over the course of this last week and especially over the last 48 hours I've not just been cyber bullied, 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," the 20-year-old explained to her 1.72million followers.

"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!" she continued.

Among the horrifying attacks she received in recent days is a despicable photo that appears to show her face photoshopped onto a lynched African American, as well as a tweet referring to her as "narmonkey."

However, Normani concluded: "I'm not the first black female celebrity to deal with this and I'm sure I won't be the last," she penned. "I want to take this moment to say Love goes much further than hate in this world."

A new t-shirt being sold in Zara has caused consumers to question whether or not the ‘white is the new black’ slogan is a racist slur.

One person tweeted the retailer asking: “With all the uproar about cultural appropriation, did you really think it was a good idea to print a "White is the New Black" shirt?”

Another tweeted: “Dumb, why would you think creating a shirt that says "White is The New Black" would not be controversial”

Of course, it’s very possible that the slogan was just an innocent use of the well-known fashion phrase, or even a reference to the hit series Orange Is The New Black – but the real question is, how did nobody spot how it could be misinterpreted before it hit the shelves?

They say all publicity is good publicity, but we’re not so sure in this case!

High street store Topshop, is facing some strong criticism from its customers, after one of its shoppers found a necklace that displays 19th century racist depictions of East Asians.

Apparently the customer questioned the store manager about the necklace, who then defended the jewellery design, saying it was “vintage” and, therefore, not racist.

The customer soon shared their complaints on Twitter, where many agreed that the said necklace shared racist depictions of the Asian community.

The necklace and matching earrings have since been removed from Topshop’s website, but images of necklace are still floating around on many social media sites.

It’s a sad thing to note that racism is still prevalent in today’s society. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s little baby girl was the recent target of a racial outburst.

Khloe Kardashian’s latest wardrobe choice has really not gone down well with her fans.

The reality star wore a traditional Native American headdress at little North West’s ‘Kidchella’ themed first birthday celebrations, and the snaps were posted to Instagram.

“Ray of clouds. Chirping of birds. Gurgling of water. Granting desire. One with water. #Kidchella my first Coachella!!!” Khloe captioned the photo that shows her sitting cross-legged next to a small teepee.

Little sis Kylie Jenner posted another snap with Khloe in the headdress.

And then the backlash began!

“NO KHLOE NO. Take 30 seconds to Google whom and WHY someone would wear this headdress. 30 seconds,” one follower wrote.

“Insensitive much?! And racist! Not cool Khloe,” wrote another.

In the Native American culture,  the headdress or feathered war bonnet is reserved for honoured Plains Indians men. In the past, the war bonnets were worn into battle, but today are worn mainly for ceremonial occasions.

This isn’t the first time Khloe has gotten into hot water over her choice of costume.

She first posted a photo wearing a similar headpiece in 2011 and captioned it, “I love playing dress up.”

One follower seemed to remember this and wrote, “This is the 2nd time she’s done this! And it was explained to her the 1st time it is disrespectful and hurtful so this is flat out racism!”

Yikes!

15 year-old Justin Bieber told a racist joke to his friends back in 2011. The video picked up by TMZ has only started to circulate over the weekend. Justin has apologised to his fans profusely. Apparently TMZ has had the video in their possession for years but chose not to publish it due to his age.

The popstar said: “I thought it was ok to repeat hurtful words and jokes, but didn’t realize at the time that it wasn’t funny and that in fact my actions were continuing the ignorance. I’m very sorry. I take my friendships with people of all cultures very seriously and I apologize for offending or hurting anyone with my childish and inexcusable mistake. I was a kid then and I am a man now who knows my responsibility to the world and to not make that mistake again. Ignorance has no place in our society and I hope the sharing of my faults can prevent others from making the same mistake in the future.”

Justin Bieber has apologised for his behaviour after a video was leaked in which he told a racist joke.

The pop star said he made a “reckless and immature mistake” and says he will never do it again.

In the clip, the now 20-year-old singer was filmed saying the N-word five times.

He asked,” Why are black people afraid of chainsaws?’ before making the noise of a chainsaw and adding, “Run n*****, n*****, n*****, n*****, n*****.”

In a statement released yesterday, Justin – who was 15 when the footage was taken – said, “As a young man, I didn’t understand the power of certain words and how they can hurt.

“I thought it was OK to repeat hurtful words and jokes, but didn’t realise at the time that it wasn’t  funny and that in fact my actions were continuing the ignorance.”

“Thanks to friends and family I learned from my mistakes and grew up and apologised for those wrongs. Now that these mistakes from the past have become public, I need to apologise again to all those I have offended,” he said.

“I’m very sorry. I take my friendships with people of all cultures very seriously and I apologise for offending or hurting anyone with my childish and inexcusable mistake. I was a kid then and I am a man now who knows my responsibility to the world and to not make that mistake again,” he added.

The clip was filmed as part of a tour documentary and Bieber’s team of publicists reportedly offered to buy it for a huge sum to keep it from being released.

The clip was met with a huge backlash on social media yesterday.

Writing on Twitter one of his fans said, “Bieber is actually disgusting. Man’s gone too far this time.”
