Solange Knowles quits Twitter after deleting rant against white supremacists

Solange Knowles has quit Twitter after deleting an expletive-laden rant about white supremacists.

The singer, 31, launched a powerfully worded tirade following the deadly white nationalist march in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend, in which one young woman was killed.

In the now-deleted post, she wrote: 'F** white supremacist. F*** nazis. F*** your stale ass bland ass monuments. F*** asking folks to be graceful.'

The musician added that her son Daniel, 12, had his first day back at school had been tainted by seeing the horrific images of the violence in Charlottesville.

Solange added: 'My son’s first day of school has been in the midst of seeing these bulls**t images that still tell him this system was built to be against him.

'How mofos supposed to have a fresh start with education, seeing this s**t?

'Thinking about demanding he not be required to take American History because its deep dark rooted ugliness continues to live right now, right before our eyes.'

Solange - the younger sister of Beyonce, shares son Daniel, aka Julez, with ex-husband Daniel Smith.

Announcing she was bowing out of the micro-blogging site, she wrote: 'Deleting my twitter soon, but before I dip when we gonna pull up? & what we got to do to get my new hero Takiya Thompson free?'

Takiya was among the counter-protesters arrested for helping to take down a Confederate statue in Durham, North Carolina.

White supremacists had hit the streets to protest the decision to remove many statues commemorating soldiers who fought for the losing Confederate army during the American Civil War from 1861 to 1865.

Riots have crossed the country, most tragically in Charlottesville, Virginia, where one woman died when a car driven by white nationalist James Fields, 20, ploughed into a crowd of counter-protesters on Saturday.
