Rihanna is angry, really angry.
Rihanna jumped on Twitter to launch a series of expletive-laden updates about a man who she alleges made racist slurs towards her and her friends.
The singer tweeted from her Lisbon hotel, “I just met the most racist c#nt ever. This man said the craziest shit about black women, calling us dogs, sluts, we don't look like sh#t and we don't belong in the same hotels.'
The singer continued to rage in a series of tweets.
“Needless to say, the #NIGGA in me came out! Bajan accent and all! Lol! Turns out the hotel manager's black. Oh and he had the NERVE to diss black people in his tighty whitey's!!!! SMH (shake my head)…and tbh (to be honest) a lil' black wouldn't hurt him.'
Rihanna also took the time to address the Dutch magazine editor who offended her. The editor has since claimed the whole thing was “a joke' and will “be corrected.'
“@evajackie I hope u can read english, because your magazine is a poor representation of the evolution of human rights! I find you disrespectful, and rather desperate!! You ran out of legit, civilized information to print! There are 1000′s of Dutch girls who would love to be recognized for their contributions to your country, you could have given them an article. Instead, u paid to print one degrading an entire race! That's your contribution to this world!
To encourage segregation, to mislead the future leaders to act in the past! You put two words together, with the intent of abasement, that made no sense…'NIGGA BITCH'?!….Well with all respect, on behalf of my race, here are my two words for you…F#CK YOU!!!'
The shocking slur appeared in the latest issue of Jackie, and sparked an immediate outcry from readers.
Editor-in-chief Eva Hoeke said there was no racist motive behind the statement – and claimed it was meant as a joke.
I don't think it's very funny.
