Animal rights protesters crash Rihanna’s perfume launch
Rihanna’s new perfume launch in Brooklyn, New York was briefly disrupted after anti-fur protesters crashed the event and verbally attacked the star for choosing to wear animal products.
Hundreds of fans crammed into MACy’s department store in Brooklyn to catch a glimpse of the Diamonds hitmaker as she unveiled her latest scent, RiRi by Rihanna, reported E!Online. But a small group of people caused a scene by parading around the shop, holding up posters of cuddly animals featuring phrases like, ‘Who died for your coat’ and ‘Skinned alive’. Video footage shows the demonstrators chanting ‘Shame on Rihanna’.
