Rihanna, Azealia Banks spar over immigration ban
Singer Rihanna and rapper Azealia Banks got into a tussle on social media after an immigration ban was called by US President Donald Trump.
It all began when Rihanna expressed her opinion on the Republican's recent policy on barring refugees from entering the US, reported AceShowbiz.
The 28-year-old 'Work' songstress took to Twitter to bash Trump and wrote, "Disgusted! The news is devastating! America is being ruined right before our eyes! What an immoral ... you have to be to implement such ..!!"
To this Banks, who is a self-professed Trump supporter, took on Rihanna by tweeting back, "No. This is all stupid and wrong. Is she even American??? Can she even vote??? We started a war we HAVE to finish or else it will finish us. Trump is simply finishing the job, not because he wants to but because HAS to. If we don't, terror will spread through turkey and into America."
The rapper then took to Instagram and wrote a post, "As far as Rihanna (who isn't a citizen and can't vote) and all the rest celebrities who are using their influence to stir the public, you lot really REALLY need to shut up and sit down. Stop chastising the president."
Rihanna came back with a reply as she posted a picture of herself with pouting lips on Instagram, "The face you make when you a immigrant #stayawayfromthechickens #iheartnuggets #saveourhens."
And Banks replied, "You're clearly listening and responding to each and every post. These pop stars love me."
