With security like this, Bad Girl RiRi is free to do whatever.
As the star danced her way into the launch of her latest Fenty Beauty collection in Milan, an over zealous fan made a grab for her. Not to worry though, the “Umbrella” singer’s security detail was right behind her. Rihanna seemingly didn’t even notice that someone was reaching for her.
With “Lemon” blaring in the background, a video posted on The Shade Room‘s Instagram shows Rihanna in an all black, form-fitted, strapless, leather Versace dress, swaying and twirling into the function to launch Fenty Beauty’s Body Lava. As she made her way past a crowd of fans, one had big dreams to touch the starlet, but… Ri’s security guard wasn’t having that.
Seemingly without even thinking, he blocked the fan from Rihanna and kept walking. “When security won’t let you be great,” TSR captioned the post.
Fans were glad to see the singer in a good mood, after Snapchat led her to clap back at a “distasteful” and “disgusting” ad. Posting her lengthy message on Snapchat itself, she responded to the app’s insensitivity towards domestic violence victims. “You spent money to animate something that would intentionally bring shame to DV victims and made a joke of it!!!” said Rihanna.
The Navy had Ri’s back 100%. “If Rih says we’re deleting Snapchat, WE’RE DELETING SNAPCHAT,” stated a fan.
“Now SNAPCHAT I know you already know you ain’t my fav app out there! But I’m just trying to figure out what the point was with this mess!” the “Work” singer began. “I’d love to call it ignorance, but I know you ain’t that dumb!”
She went on, “This isn’t about my personal feelings, cause I don’t have much of them…but all the women, children and men that have been victims of DV in the past and especially the ones who haven’t made it out yet…you let us down!”
“Shame on you. Throw the while app-oligy away,” she added.
It seems like ever since the app’s latest update — which was collectively slammed by users — it’s been all down hill. The app’s stock took a big hit after Kylie Jenner voiced her distaste for its latest update on Twitter, now that it has upset hip-hop’s beloved Rihanna… Things are really bad off for Snap.
Trust and believe… It did not take long for Snapchat to hear that it had been called out again. The company quickly released a public statement, apologizing for the advertisement.
“This advertisement is disgusting and never should have appeared on our service,” Snapchat’s statement read. “We are so sorry we made the terrible mistake of allowing it through our review process. We are investigating how that happened so that we can make sure it never happens again.”
Regardless of its apology, the company has left a bad taste in users’ mouths. “Snapchat you’ve been cancelled since that update,” an Instagram user posted. “To all those that have something negative to say about chrisbrownofficial who made a bad decision and moved from it , look in the mirror,” wrote another.
Just last year, Chris Brown gave fans an in-depth look into his side of the night that forever changed his and Rihanna’s lives. Brown infamously assaulted the pop star on the night of the Grammys in 2009. He revealed that the violence stemmed from him being unfaithful and Rihanna’s reaction to that.
