Rihanna Gets Surprised Backlash Over Her Statement On Israeli-Palestinian Crisis

Rihanna Rihanna is facing backlash after her seemingly neutral stance on the Israel-Palestine conflict.

Weeks of tension between Israel and Palestine have erupted into what the United Nations has framed as a potential “all-out war” as airstrikes have begun to befall the lives of innocent people. The highly controversial political warfare has brought many voices to social media, sharing updates on the tragedy as well as influencers condemning the violence. Recently, Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot came under fire for her tweet that called for Israel to “be free”. The actress who served in the Israeli army was accused of spreading “propaganda” and later had to disable her comments.

Rihanna is the latest celebrity to be bashed for her response to airstrikes taking to Instagram to say “I stand with humanity!” The singer and beauty mogul wrote a statement for social media saying, “My heart is breaking with the violence I’m seeing displayed between Israel and Palestine! I can’t bare to see it! Innocent Israeli and Palestinian children are hiding in bomb shelters, over 40 lives lost in Gaza alone, at least 13 of whom were also innocent children!

“There needs to be some kind of resolve! We are sadly watching innocent people fall victim to notions perpetuated by government and extremists, and this cycle needs to be broken!” she added. The Fenty Beauty CEO was accused of taking a neutral stance in a matter where many believed there was an aggressor and a victim. Some even say Rihanna was pulling the “all lives matter card,” which did not go over well.

Other celebrities did share posts expressing their solidarity with the Palestinians and calling for an end to their suffering. Supermodel Bella Hadid was among those whose post called out those who take a diplomatic approach to their statements out of fear. “Future generations will look back in disbelief and wonder how we allowed the Palestinian suffering to continue for so long. A human tragedy unfolding right in front of our eyes,” Hadid wrote.

“Politicians stutter neutral words in fear of being reprimanded, whilst the world remains silent to avoid offending the wrong people. History has taught us to speak up. You are either on the right side or you are not. It’s that simple.” Her post has since been shared multiple times, including by Grammy-winning singer Dua Lipa.

The ongoing bloodshed has seen the death toll rise above 70 in just three days. This isn’t the first time Rihanna has publicly commented on the Israel-Palestine conflict, albeit the first time was said to be inadvertent. In 2014, the singer tweeted a “Free Palestine” hashtag that sent Twitter into a frenzy.

This was exacerbated when she deleted the tweet and replaced it with what was also perceived as a neutral statement, “Let’s pray for peace and a swift end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict! Is there any hope?” she wrote. A source told TMZ that the singer accidentally made the initial tweet after clicking on a link.

So let me guess Biden said the jews have the right to defend their selves, it does not matter how many children and women they are killing, about 1000 private citizens wounded and 120 are killed including women and kids, that is coming from a f***** president who said he will unite people.

When Trump was president he tried to work with those countries, they started to male agreement even doing business together, these days you have to be part of a group in order to be like and live the way men want you to live, you have to be democrat if you want to be like by every one politically, you have to be gay in order to be someone who loves every one and be accepted as the best person, you have to be a catholic in order to praise peacefully but still do what every one else are doing.

The bible says it, if you are weak you will surrender your rights and believe and follow every one else, if you have strong and is a true believer of God you will be tortured and persecute in order to denounced your belief and God, its happening in countries like China as we speak, in America you cannot pray in school, they are trying to keep the churches close.

These days you cannot speak your own opinion, you have to speak like every one else, they will either try to keep you silence by making your life a living hell, or they will kill you, for people like Rihanna its even worse if they depends on the powerful, so she cannot speak her own opinion, as long as its the jews they can do as they please and any n***** who supports that is nothing but a f*****, a hateful slave n*****, like f***** ass Al sharpton an old sell put n*****, when the last time the jews came to black peoples assistance for as long as you have been going through struggle in America, do they care?

The democrats have one their goals, they want to take away power from any one who arw independent and make them rely on government so they can control the public, they want to take away God so the people can rely on them, those are the true devils, the true slave masters, you niggers on here need to do your history, i have more to say but ill wait for one of those ignorant niggers to say something so i can educate them and embarrass them, dont come at me if you dont have facts, its 2021 i dont do the n***** talk, if i cant learn from you, we have nothing in common, this is why i speak, to share information and learn as i grow so i can understand this world better

Religion is s***. All gods are imaginary. Human earthlings. Inviting all to think logically.
