Rihanna Calls Out Trump For Playing Her Music At Tennessee Rally
Rihanna is not having it.
The singer recently blasted Trump after hearing that he has been using her music during his rallies. Rihanna hopped on Twitter on Sunday (Nov. 4), announcing that the use of her music wouldn’t continue for much longer.
Rih found out about the situation after Philip Rucker, The Washington Post’s White House bureau chief tweeted about one of Trump’s rallies in Chattanooga, Tennessee on Sunday. “It’s been said a million times, but here’s a million and one — Trump’s rallies are unlike anything else in politics. Currently, Rihanna’s ‘Don’t Stop the Music’ is blaring in Chattanooga as aides toss free Trump T-shirts into the crowd, like a ball game. Everyone’s loving it,” the political analyst wrote.
Not amused, Rihanna responded: “Not for much longer…me nor my people would ever be at or around one of those tragic rallies, so thanks for the heads up Philip!”
Rihanna has gotten in a groove of making political statements. Most recently, she publicly backed Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum. She noted that Gillum has a strong stance on “critical issues” like minimum wage, criminal justice reform, and healthcare. She also reportedly declined the Super Bowl halftime show in support of Colin Kaepernick, who has been blacklisted from the NFL following his silent protests during the national anthem.
It doesn’t seem as though Rihanna’s team has delivered a formal cease and desist to Trump just yet, but it’s mostly likely coming soon.
