Rihanna claps back at troll asking if she's a US citizen

Rihanna sets the record straight to a troll who questioned her US citizenship on Election Day.


Rihanna is an immigrant from Barbados who’s trying her best to encourage US citizens to vote. So when one fan questioned her authority, the singer didn’t hesitate to give the troll a dressing down.



On Election Day, Rihanna posted a list of 15 states that allow same-day registration and reminded her followers to vote.

“It’s ELECTION DAY America!! The most important day for the rest of your lives...all you have is right now! TODAY!!”

The singer added,

“If you’re tired of complaining about the state of the country and government, get up and do something about it!!! #VOTE ... simple!!! You have no excuse, and If you live in any of these states it’s not too late to register today!! C’mon man, LETS GO!!!!!”


Rihanna’s enthusiasm seemed to have confused one follower who asked Rihanna point black,

“Are you even a US citizen? Honest curiosity.”

In all honesty and with a little bit of sarcasm, the “Work” singer replied,

"Nah I'm an immigrant tryna get yo country together. Did u vote?"



Regardless of her status in the country, Rihanna is steadfast in using her platform to encourage Americans to vote. And she’s making no room for voters’ hesitation. When one fan said their vote didn’t matter, the singer quickly corrected the fans’ notion.

"They want you to think that sis! Don't fall for it! If you don't go, they'll take your vote and allocate it where they want to! It's happening to many citizens as we speak!"


Rihanna must be wishing she too could vote seeing how relentless she is in campaigning for the candidates she believes in. This is probably the reason why she’s doing everything in her power to encourage others to go to the polls.



Rihanna has been very outspoken lately about her political beliefs. Earlier this week, she slammed President Donald Trump for using her music in his rallies. The singer learned her song “Don’t Stop The Music” blared while Trump tossed free T-shirts to the crowd at a gathering in Chattanooga. She responded by tweeting to stop the music and ban Trump from ever using her songs again.
