It amazes me how many different platforms celebrities can use to to get into fights with people. Just look at how Rihanna attacked Liz Jones on Instagram.
Look, to be fair, Liz Jones said dumb stuff about Rihanna first. She wrote an article in The Daily Mail claiming that:
I don’t care if she has the voice of an angel and is self-made, feisty and confident.
All these qualities pale to nothing when we know she went back to her abusive boyfriend, Chris Brown, who pleaded guilty to assaulting her in 2009; that she promotes drug-taking, drinking and the sort of fashion sense on stage that surely invites rape at worst, disrespect at least.
Nothing you wear invites rape. You can be walking through the streets naked as a jaybird, and it does not give people an excuse to rape you. I will continue saying that until I am blue in the face.
Speaking of which, Liz Jones ran a picture of Rihanna after she was beaten, which was INCREDIBLY INAPPROPRIATE. That was not something that Rihanna did that was bad. That was something terrible that happened to her.
Rihanna responded on Instagram, claiming that:
LOL!!!! My money got a bad habit of pissing people off!! If you sincerely wanna help little girls more than their own parents do, here’s a toxic tip: don’t be amateur with your articles, you sound bitter! What’s all this about hair and nails and costumes and tattoos?? ….That shit ain’t clever!!! That shit ain’t journalism! That’s a sad sloppy menopausal mess!!! Nobody over here acts like they’re perfect! I don’t pretend that I’m like you, i just live… My life!! And I don’t know why y’all still act so surprised by any of it!! “Role Model” is not a position or title that I have ever campaigned for, so chill wit dat! I got my own fucked up shit to work on, I’ll never portray that as perfect, but for right now it’s ME!! Call it what ya want!! Toxic was cute, Poisonous Pop Princess had a nice ring to it, just a lil wordy! And P.S. my first American Vogue cover was in 2011…APRIL!!! #ElizabethAnnJones
You know, I don’t agree with all of Rihanna’s choices, but in this instance I’m going to say that story checks out.
