â€‹Hannah Barrett, X Factor contestant said that she has been receiving racists comments duing her stint on the show. She said that she ha been branded on twitter "too dark" â€‹
When asked if she has received much negative attention she responded (via Reveal) "I've received a lot racist comments on Twitter. People say I'm too dark to be a singer and there have been lots of references to how dark my skin is".
"People say, "You're black and ugly." And nasty things like that. The sad thing is that most of them are made by black people who just have lighter skin than me."
"I'm just like, 'Whatever'. I know they are talking rubbish."
Barrett feels "really blessed" to be on The X Factor: "This time last year I was working in Greggs, going to college and living by myself. Things has change soo much, now I'm living in a £5m house with amazing people, going to photoshoots and interviews and singing at the weekend."
