We all know Rihanna has the potential to be an outspoken individual, and she’ll basically say whatever’s on her mind — as is true with most celebrities. Recently, Rihanna unleashed a tweet that said #FreePalestine; however, either she or someone on her team realized it might not be wise to get so involved in international politics because the message was deleted approximately 8 minutes later. A similar situation occurred with Dwight Howard: he tweeted the same note and also deleted it.
Unlike Rihanna, who left the situation alone after deletion, Dwight apologized for inserting himself into the touchy international affair, saying, “Previous tweet was a mistake. I have never commented on international politics and never will. I apologize if I offended anyone with my previous tweet, it was a mistake!”
What do you make of Rihanna’s decision to tweet out this message and quickly delete it? Do you think there’s a problem with celebrities such as these two getting involved with international issues? I mean, it’s not necessarily out of the norm and we hear about a lot of celebrities commenting on things. Do you think Rihanna should’ve at least issued a statement/note explaining the reasons behind her deleting the post? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below. We’d love to hear from you!
