Rihanna Blocks So-called Fan on Twitter for Photoshopping Her Skin Lighter

Did this “fan” really think that was going to go over well?

Published March 10, 2016

Take a brief scroll down through the Twitter profile of user @flopstar and it’s clear we have yet another racist troll on our hands.

It’s a safe assumption that whoever is behind the account made a desperate ploy looking for some attention, but Rihanna, for one, was certainly not going to shine any spotlight her way.

While the bio on the page reads, “I really love Rihanna and I have her album. I APOLOGIZE” Rihanna still has no words for her, after her — or her team — caught wind of the ghastly Photoshop work of this so-called “fan.”

Alongside a caption reading, “You can call me a cracker and all that but this is undeniable proof that the whiter the more beautiful,” the user posted an original photo of RiRi with a photoshopped version whitewashing the stunning singer. 

Get. All. The. Way. Out. Of. Here.

Rihanna handled the situation perfectly, simply by blocking the user and moving on with her fabulous Barbadian self, while members of The Navy fired back demanding that the Twitter user do everyone on this planet a favor and delete her account permanently. 

RiRi doesn’t have time to play, and the fact that she hasn’t clapped back or address this Photoshop travesty at all makes us love her even more.
