Rihanna Blocks Fan Who Tweeted a Photoshopped Image of Her as a White Woman

Avatar • Mar 9, 2016

A couple days ago a Rihanna fan set out to make the point that the stunning pop star looks better as a white woman. She tweeted a photoshopped image of Rihanna with whitened skin with the caption, “You can call me a cracker and all that but this is undeniable proof that the whiter the more beautiful.”

The ghastly image was retweeted hundreds of times and caught the attention of Rihanna or a member of her team, who responded by blocking the fan.

Rihanna is the spitting image of her mother, Monica Braithwaite.

And she is similar in complexion to her father, Ronald Fenty.

It seems the superstar is not here for folks trying to erase her heritage. Ladies, what are your thoughts?

White people are weird. And Riri looked like a fucking alien in that picture. Creepy and unattractive. If anything, this was proof that black is beautiful. But delusional whites will say anything to make themselves feel better.

Seriously that stupid chick is blind or something because I actually got scared when I saw the “white” version of Riri! WTF?! The white version is not as beautiful, actually far from it.
She actually proved the opposite of what she stated. I guess that’s why plenty of them take the risk to have skin problems by tanning… HA!!

It is so sad that she doesnt even realize she is racist! Her post was wrong in so many levels. Racist + Rihanna looks terrible white. It is sad that this girl cannot see how beautiful Riri’s skin color is. Also disturbing that she finds the need to photoshop someone to proof her racist point of view.

Actually, she KNOWS Rihanna’s skin color is beautiful. That’s why she did it. People do not concern themselves with things that are “less than”. They fixate on things that are better than and since she can’t have it, she hates on it. Epic FAIL!

She doesn’t strike me as someone who’s super proud of her heritage. She claimed to be mixed race although both of her parents identify as Black. It’s nice that she blocked her and didn’t interact with this racist fan, but seriously Rihanna isn’t an example of being Black and proud by any measure.

Mixed race doesn’t necessarily mean half black and half white. She could be half Amerindian. They are the natives that inhabited the Island of Barbados before the devil showed up with African slaves.

Rihanna’s grandmother (her father’s mother) is a white Bajan. Unlike many of the other Caribbean islands, Barbados was actually uninhabited at the time of European arrival (although there had been Amerinidian settlement on the island before).

To call our Ancestors slaves is to dehumanise them. They were innocent men and women who were kidnapped and forced into slavery. It was the role of the European and Arabs to treat us less then human.

Everything I’ve seen indicates that Rihanna is proud of her racial and cultural heritage. I’ve seen her refer to herself as black many times. And if she does refer to herself as mixed race, that’s also true. Her granny (dad’s mom) is a white Bajan. Is she not allowed to acknowledge that?

The definition of being mixed in the Caribbean is not the same as in the U.S. A large proportion of West Indian folks have mixed race ancestry, but are still black. For instance I have Asian & white ancestry, I am considered half-caste in Jamaica, but that doesn’t take away from being black. In this country you are only mixed race if you have a white parent. Different places, different definitions.

Y’all need to get over the LIE that she ever referenced herself as mixed. She people would pick on her by calling her mixed and white in high school when they knew damn well she’s black. In that vein she said she could relate to someone like mariah carey, NOT that she herself is biracial.

Besides her father is biracial, so if she ever decided to call herself mixed she wouldn’t be lying. Rihanna has always been proud of being Bajan, of being Black.

I am pretty sure she wouldn’t be accepting the black girl’s rock star award if she wasn’t proud to be black or didn’t indetify herself as one. The only time she referred herself as mixed when she was bullied herself and that is why she could relate a bit to Mariah, but she is a black woman and I don’t know where you get that she isn’t proud, Especially when she represents her culture all the time and she called herself black on multiple occasions.

Ok, as someone who delights in the fact that they are so pale that they literally glow in the dark (once while hiking during a new moon around one in the morning, the guy behind me said he could only find the trail because he could see my hands and neck and nothing else) — I gotta say, Rihanna is beautiful just as she is and that casper abomination is terrifying. Not pretty at all.

It’s funny… I know this isn’t the point of the article, but I’m white and I’m often jealous of darker skin tones. The original picture looks much more beautiful. On the other hand, I don’t go to tanning booths. I embrace my pasty complexion for what it is 🙂 For me, being this pale makes me feel close to my heritage (my father and grandmother are the same way), and I imagine it must be similar for Rhianna. Both are beautiful… or self-pride is beautiful. Let’s go with that.

I can believe that. I was bullied at school by white girls who actually admitted they wished they had my colour. Later patronised by white colleagues at work who ‘complimented’ me on my ‘nice’ shade, whilst telling me if I was darker it’d be horrible. Talk about back-handed compliments. They seriously thought they weren’t being racist. Sad but true.

Did you guys forget how Rihanna looked when she first started out? She had a much deeper complexion. Her mother has been photographed with a popular bleaching product in her native country. Rihanna bleaches on and off. She looks much better with her naturally darker skin.and she doesn’t look white on the edited pic. Just like an albino version of herself.

Y’all tripping, This is what she looked like promoting Music of the Sun fresh outta Barbados. She has been caramel the whole damn time, she might get tanned here and there, but the only thing that really changed was her hair color. Now her mama was dark back in the day, she may have been using some skin lightener.

What makes Rihanna beautiful is her bone structure and the shape of her features. Her natural skin tone is also beautiful, but even in that ridiculous photoshop, she’s still gorgeous. Whoever felt the need to tweet that is at best a completely thoughtless lackwit, at worst an out and out white supremacist.

because the technique used to lighten the skin lightened everything. It bleached away natural blushes, and flows of color. the touched up photo looks like an unfinished maniquinne.

Makes you wonder if Beyonce’s increasingly euro-centric look is simply a commercial response to what the (white) fan-dollars want to see; and what they can best ‘appreciate’ as beauty. Always find it interesting the differences between her and her sister.

#Blockanna is not playing with these children. Lol! I don’t understand the point this “fan” was trying to prove by lightening the photo or writing that caption. She’s lucky all Rih did was block her arse. I wish #Clapbackanna would’ve responded with something like that infamous “…b**ch, I’m black” tweet before she blocked old girl.

The point the so-called fan was trying to prove was a white supremacist bull shit idea that white people & white skin is more beautiful. And she used Rihanna image & manipulated it diminish Rihanna’s identity and original beauty.

it is interesting the comments people make about Beyonce and Rihanna and their different shades of skin.People forget, black people do tan as well and secondly being caught by flash light under the wrong conditions and can make you appear ten shades lighter/darker with the person having done nothing to their skin or make up.

Why can’t black be beautiful and white too? Why the “white ain’t right” talk? If you want to end racism, you have to stop being racist yourself. Your comment, tbh, makes you a racist just as much as the girl who posted that picture was.

That girl is probably crazy (and racist and creating beauty standards). Her parents obviously didn’t teach her properly, heck they probably follow those messed up standards too.
I think that Rihanna looks really pale and ill in the 2nd picture. It’s scary. ‑_-
Love your skin people! You’re beautiful just the way you are! <3
