LeBron's Biggest Fan Rihanna Posted This Hilarious Long Live the Lion King Spoof Tribute

Bad Gal and other fans also congratulated KD.

Published June 13, 2017

By now, you should know that Rihanna is a die-hard LeBron James fan. Let's not forget how she completely took over Game 1 of these NBA Finals by doing everything from staring down Kevin Durant to bowing to King James. Or how about the time last year, when a bikini-clad Bad Gal wrote Bron's No. 23 on her stomach with sunblock? Thirst trap!

Well, needless to say, watching her beloved LeBron lose the NBA championship to KD and the Golden State Warriors last night didn't sit well with RiRi.

That could explain why she jumped on the 'Gram and posted this hilarious "#LongLiveTheKing" spoof tribute to LeBron, including herself, King James and KD in a classic scene right out of the classic movie The Lion King. With it, she reiterated "#KingIsStillKingB***h" while bringing herself to still congratulate Durant.

Just more reasons to love Rihanna. Here's Bad Gal's hysterical homage to LeBron, how she poked fun at herself and her fans' reactions to these antics. 

  1. Rihanna's IG Post Straight out of 'The Lion King' Is Just Too Funny!

    We're dead. Rihanna is too real.

  2. And when she caught wind of IG putting the Michael Jordan crying meme on her face, she took the L like a champ

    😢 #childish

    #Childish? Yes. But it's the obligatory move when you went so hard for Bron and his Cleveland Cavaliers lost.

  3. And her fans are deliriously here for all of this, including her congratulating KD

    RiRi is undefeated out here, not to mention loyal.
