Rihanna and her fans have responded to a ‘racist’ tweet online – after a follower told her she would look better "if she was white".
According to OK!, a follower decided to Photoshop four of Rihanna‘s pictures to whiten her skin. The person in question posted four heavily edited pictures online, showing the songstress with a much lighter skin tone.
Alongside, the follower in question wrote, “Rihanna would look so much more beautiful if she was white,” with a heart-eyed emoji. And fans were horrified by the post, with one writing: “That is the most disgusting edit I’ve ever seen,” while a second said the comment was “racist”.
The Man Down singer, 29, hit back at a follower who decided to Photoshop four of her pictures to whiten her skin. Rihanna swiftly blocked the follower from appearing on her timeline.
The action didn’t go unnoticed by the fan, who wrote: “Rihanna blocked me how did she even see it?”
That’s really funny how white people stay assured that everyone must envy their skin color when Black stars like Rihanna just enjoy their gorgeous Blackness.
