Fifth Harmony's Normani Kordei's made her return to Twitter with a powerful statement against bullying as she's announced as The Cybersmile Foundation's Diversity Ambassador.

Normani was forced to take a break from Twitter last month after she explained she'd been 'racially cyberbullied;' but now she's making a stand with her new Cybersmile role and encouraging everybody to promote some positivity and 'put an end to the hate' we're all sick of seeing online.

Chatting about her becoming the foundation's Diversity Ambassador, Normani said: "Unfortunately there is a lot of abuse and negativity online, by working with Cybersmile I want to raise awareness of the support that is available to people affected while playing my part in contributing to a kinder and more positive internet for everybody.

"I am making this announcement on my Twitter as a statement to never let anyone run you away!  No one has the right to make where you go or what you do uncomfortable.  It's important to stand up to all forms of bullying and it's even more important for those who are around you to be just as courageous and stand with you!  Together, we can put an end to the hate and promote only positivity and love. #positivity  <3 Mani"

Cybersmile's CEO fella Scott Freeman's well excited about it all, too. He added: "Everybody at Cybersmile is delighted to welcome Normani as our official Diversity Ambassador, to have somebody with real life experience of the damage online abuse can do combined with a determination to make a real difference makes her involvement a dream come true for us. 

"We're all very excited to start working together."

Back on August 7th, Normani wrote an open letter to fans explaining: "Over the past four years of being in the public eye I've learned to grow a thick skin to critics and those who may not like me.

"I've never been one to deny anyone of their opinions, but 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."

What d'ya make of that, then? Glad Mani's making a stand and embracing her new role as a messenger of positivity for Cybersmile? Give us a tweet over @sugarscape and don't forget to like us on Facebook while you're at it. TA.
