When it comes to singer-turned-fashion icon Rihanna, branding is key. From her illustrious sportswear collaboration with Puma to her well-received makeup line, Fenty has easily become a household name. 

But in the case of some of RiRi's so-called "fans," the correlation between her real last name and the names of her makeup and fashion line were not so readily apparent. 

As any true member of the RihNavy is well aware, Rihanna's full name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, but this revelation came as a shock to many social media users. The truth behind Rih's ingenious branding even led a handful of publications to marvel at the internet's hilarious reactions. 

But that's the thing about the internet, particularly Black Twitter: once you prove your ignorance, prepare yourself to get dragged unforgivingly. Take a look at the hilarious roast session below. 

But perhaps the best clapback of all came straight from Rih herself. Shortly after catching wind of the chaos on social media, the "Consideration" singer took to Instagram early Friday morning (Sept. 22) to throw shade of her own. 

Check out Rihanna's hilarious response to the Fenty madness below.
