RIHANNA: Stands in Solidarity with Black Lives Matter

RIHANNA: Stands in Solidarity with Black Lives Matter

Rihanna has been avoiding social media lately, but she couldn’t remain silent over the death of George Floyd.

RiRi posted a heartfelt statement to Instagram. “For the last few days, the magnitude of the devastation, anger, sadness I’ve felt has been overwhelming to say the least! Watching my people get murdered and lynched day after day pushed me to a heavy place in my heart! To the point of staying away from socials, just to avoid hearing the blood curdling agony in George Floyd’s voice again, begging over and over for his life!!! The look of enticement, the pure joy and climax on the face of this bigot, murderer, thug, pig, bum, Derek Chauvin, haunts me!! I can’t shake this! I can’t get over an ambulance pulling up to an arrest, a paramedic checking a pulse without removing the very thing that’s hindering it! Is this that [effing] normal??? If intentional MURDER is the fit consequence for “drugs” or “resisting arrest”….then what’s the fit consequence for MURDER???! #GeorgeFloyd #AhmaudArbery #BreonnaTaylor “
