Most celebrities take criticism from fans, haters, and the media sitting down. Sure, sometimes there’s a press release response or maybe even a mildly defensive tweet, but more times than not, celebs are just plain old silent. However, some celebs are using social media to deal with public slams in a much more direct way and Rihanna is definitely one of them.
Buzzfeed.com presented a list of Rihanna’s most outrageous Twitter comebacks and we were surprised at just how fierce the singer’s digital bark was and we kind of dig it…well, some of it at least. Several of the comebacks listed crossed the line, for sure. Nasty name calling and bullying back is no way to deal with an online hater, but that’s not all of what she does. Sometimes she just puts these Twitter haters in their place in a way that feels right to us.
When one user tweeted, “ummm…@Rihanna u do know ur boobs r hanging out in like all of ur videos…right? #JustCheckin…,” Rihanna responded with: “ur welcome.” We love the way she confronted that without being confrontational.
Another hater tweeted, “So @Rihanna is giving out lap dances at her concert now what a f***ing whore.” The same day, Rihanna tweeted back, “lol, u could atleast find a more clever way of callin me something I already call myself! #HONAVY.” Way to address it and move on, Rihanna.
Not all of her comebacks were respectful responses though. One user said: “Wow, as I look through @Rihanna’s TL. I realise how unclassy she actually is. I see a lot of ‘c**** & f***. #NotCool #NotAttractive” Rihanna tweeted back to her, “F*** u C***!!!! #unclassyNavy.”
WDYT, gURLs? Are all of these comebacks crossing the line? Some of them? None? What would you do in her Twitter shoes? Discuss below.
