Callmeholland.com is a website in which an AI will read any text out in a celebrities’ voice. The website is powered by LionRocket.
The website was intended to be used by fans who wanted a message from the singer.

However, trolls have started using the service to make it seem that Holland is saying racists and homophobic statements. One even claimed that Holland did blackface and said the n-word, and tried to use this service as “evidence.”
Harlings! Mass report and block this account/tweet. They abused the callmeholland website to create an awful video which is the reason why Holland tweeted what he did earlier pic.twitter.com/pFx2z0HMqi

In response to this, Holland said in a now-deleted tweet,
sorry, but f**ng racists and homphobia can’t be harling 🙂
The accounts did not appear to be apologetic when called out, however. They took to Twitter to share these tweets. The accounts have since been suspended.
Many fans have rushed to Holland’s defense and have shown their love for the singer.
