It can get frustrating to see experienced media outlets post beefs between black women fueling cattiness between some of the most influential women of color in the industry.
We have so many obstacles to break through we really do not need any help from our own platforms and followings. With that said celebrities are starting to speak up when dragged into mess and this week Rihanna did just that.
Rihanna found herself in a bit of a Twitter storm when she liked a picture that promoted competition between herself and Beyonce over the Grammy nominations. Beyonce has 9 nominations and Rihanna has 8, read what one of her NAVY followers posted:
Rihanna actually liked the picture but did not read the caption until all hell broke loose because people assumed she cosigned the message.
Rihanna decided to put things to rest:
“I never actually read your caption, thought the pic was funny and moved right along! Til I seen it pop up over and over! I’m petty af, yes. But this is just unnecessary! I wish y’all would drop this topic and see things from the bigger picture! We don’t need to be putting black women against each other! We deserve to be celebrated, and the Grammy Academy agrees!”
I wish they would stop too!
