Singer and reality show star Fantasia Barrino isn’t letting some racist fool get her down.
The celeb site TMZ reports that Barrino – spotted recently in Atlanta while filming her reality show “Fantasia For Real” – received a disturbing missive after finishing a performance of “The Color Purple” in Los Angeles the other day.
It was “peppered with threats of violence and racial slurs — including the N-word,” the TMZ report said.
Barrino contacted security at the theater where she was performing as well as the Los Angeles Police Department. Authorities are investigating, but Barrino is reacting with her trademark spunk.
“I will not be defeated by one isolated person’s hatred,” Barrino told TMZ in a statement.
