Ri­hanna, Banks feud over Trump

The Star Early Edition - - NEWS -

AZEALIA Banks has posted Ri­hanna’s cell­phone num­ber on In­sta­gram amid a so­cial me­dia feud, and has slated the Work hit­maker for try­ing to use her fame to in­flu­ence the pub­lic.

The 25-year-old singer em­barked on a dig­i­tal feud with Ri­hanna over the week­end, which saw her screen­shot a pic­ture of the 28-year-old vo­cal­ist’s per­sonal con­tact de­tails and share it with her al­most 500 000 In­sta­gram fol­low­ers.

The 212 mu­si­cian cap­tioned the post: “Bombs away! (sic)”

How­ever, Banks has since deleted the up­load, and the num­ber has been dis­con­nected.

This news comes af­ter Banks slammed fel­low celebri­ties for us­ing their fame to “stir” and in­flu­ence the pub­lic, fol­low­ing US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s or­der to ban cit­i­zens from sev­eral coun­tries from en­ter­ing the US for the next three months.

Ba­jan star Ri­hanna spoke out against the new leader, and tweeted: “Dis­gusted! The news is dev­as­tat­ing! Amer­ica is be­ing ru­ined right be­fore our eyes! What an im­moral pig you have to be to im­ple­ment such BS!!”

To which Banks re­torted: “As far as Ri­hanna (who isn’t a cit­i­zen, and can’t vote) and all the rest of the celebri­ties who are us­ing their in­flu­ence to stir the pub­lic, you lot re­ally, re­ally need to shut up and sit down.

“Stop chastis­ing the pres­i­dent. It’s stupid and pa­thetic to watch. All of th­ese con­fused peo­ple con­fuse other con­fused peo­ple.”

But Ri­hanna didn’t take the com­ment lightly and re­tal­i­ated with an in­di­rect com­ment about Banks, who re­cently claimed she was a witch and was in­volved in mur­der­ing chick­ens as part of a spir­i­tual rit­ual.

Along­side a pic­ture of Ri­hanna sport­ing just a black piece of fab­ric to cover her am­ple as­sets as she pouts for the cam­era, she wrote: “The face you make when you an im­mi­grant. #stay­awayfromthechick­ens #iheart­nuggets #saveourhens. (sic)” – Bang Me­dia
