RiRi faces backlash over birthday ‘tribute’ to the Queen

Rihanna has been hit with backlash from offended Brits after superimposing the Queen’s head onto her own racy ensembles in a bizarre birthday tribute.

As the British monarch celebrated her 91st birthday over the weekend, the Barbadian hitmaker took to Instagram to share four snaps in which her own sexy looks had Queen Elizabeth’s head attached.

While an array of her 52.4million followers saw the funny side to the tongue-in-cheek gesture, the comments section on the snaps was swarmed with counterblast in which she was branded a “stupid little girl” for the  “disrespectful” doctored images.

This is one of the images that was doctored for the bizarre tribute.

Rihanna is never shy of controversy and Saturday’s posts were no exception as she chose four of her sexiest and quirkiest ensembles to give the Queen a shock and unheard of image makeover, much to the chagrin of fans.

Rihanna and Prince Harry during his visit to Barbados last year.

The posts come just five months after the Barbadian singer joined forces with the Queen’s grandson Prince Harry in Barbados to both take HIV tests for World AIDS Day as part of his tour of the island last November.

      She looks like a midnight blond with that colour hair. She can teach those Brits how she dances…. Like Mother Sally in slow motion. She has confirmed the fact that she has no pedigree and can never be a part of British Royalty. In other words she is classified as a commoner. n That is fact.

      • Jennifer April 24, 2017 at 9:57 am

        @Peter – Well said Pete. This is what out people get for mixing with those f***ers and making league. Good job.

            Thank You. It distresses me to see beautiful black women color their hair and bleach their skin. Be proud of whom they are and importantly, what they have achieved. Does that make them white when they die? Yes it’s their money and theit freedom of choice. They may think they look nice but they’re fooling no one but themselves.

        Much ado about nothing. Don’t make this an issue. Elizabeth is in the departure lounge. Besides Barbados’ flag has a broken trident which is black. Shouldn’t that have been a white broken trident? Jenny the JACKASS KNOWS EVERYTHING ASK HER.

    Question do any of you all think that she would have placed superimposed a pic of the Prophet Mohammed on her body? Would that be okay? Would it be considered offensive? what do you all believe would be the ramifications of such an action? I await some answers as in my opinion what she did is wrong and i am 100% sure she would never have considered doing such a thing to the Muslim Prophet.

    • Jonah Banks April 24, 2017 at 8:40 am

      The reason she wouldn’t superimpose her head on Mohammed is because she knows how violent Muslims are.

    Brits I would not think that Rhianna would have wanted to be disrespectful of Her Majesty the Elizabeth the Second of The British Commonwealth, it may have been seen as a tribute to a grand mother or great aunt in the form of humanity and family structure. So Brits can you please express what is classified as disrespect and what may be interpreted as homage?

  20. Helicopter(8P) April 24, 2017 at 9:25 am

    Sherlock Holmes we are not muslin, Her Majesty is not so your time and cranial effort has been wasted! Ri Ri ‘s ancestors probably hunted around Scotland in the days of old for pheasant foul as hunting teams. We all respect Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second and her status, I for one at the age of twelve had the pleasure of meeting Her Majesty and found her to be motherly and caring in her mannerism by the questions she presented me.

    @, Sherlock H, hail, hail, on the spot your (7.40) is good for me…
    I think they are limits of rudeness , and to be honest any rudeness against (Her Majesty the Queen ) should not occur
    she is head of the commonwealth , because of her and the British visitors our asses in barbados is save from hunger and starvation,,
    I think (Rhianna ) should put out an apology matter close ……..

    • Sherlock Holmes. April 24, 2017 at 11:00 am

      Do you really believe that the Brits see this as humor and a joke? Have you seen the adoration that they have for the monarchy? It may mean nothing to you and i but even when a baby is expected by the royal family you see first hand how the Brits behave. They see the Queen’s birthday as an important and significant milestone and they will not see the act perpetrated by Rihanna as humorous,Milli Watt.

      • Milli Watt April 24, 2017 at 2:47 pm

        they should have seen the caribbean the same way when the marauding rats invaded this place with their disease, stolen technology from Africa and a presumptuous monarchy that based its existence on no less than its equal God. I question why we spend money on education and produce the likes a you Holmes. You should have been made to pay for what little education you got. the pricing mechanism would have worked to keep your type picking pond grass in the hot sun with the closest shade five miles away.

        • Sherlock Holmes. April 24, 2017 at 9:20 pm

          Milli this is definitely A DONKEY ALERT! From reading most of your posits i am sure that your canards are a clear indication that money was not spent at all to educate you. You are as daft as they come.

      • harry turnover April 24, 2017 at 8:21 pm

        Sherlock Holmes what you worrying bout ? God and NOT the BRITS will SAVE the QUEEN.

  25. Ralph W Talma April 24, 2017 at 10:45 am

    1. What Rihanna has done will indeed be construed by some as being disrespectful. But, I believe she did it without realising the full implications thereof.
    2. I believe Her Majesty and the Duke would have had a little chuckle at the temerity of the young lady.
    3. Having said that, her overall behaviour and demeanour to date around the World is in my opinion neither Ambassadorial nor what I would expect my Grand-daughter to copy. Sorry.

    • Milli Watt April 24, 2017 at 2:48 pm

      that is why she is a multi millionaire and you are………..well from the looks a things an unimportant hater.

    Sherlock Holmes seriously????
    You are comparing Queen Elizabeth to the
    prophet Mohammed?
    Mohammed is to Muslims what Jesus Christ
    is to Christians.
    Don’t even go there.

    Francis it boils down to respect, many tout freedom of speech and expression.Case in point and artist exhibited a portrait of Jesus in Vat of urine and it was well received by many, Christians spoke out and vented their disgust but they did not kill anyone. Do you think that same artist would have dared to do that with the Muslim prophet?It was not a sensible act Francis and my comparison was merely illustrative basically to show that some people know exactly what they are doing, they are even aware of the backlash they will receive but most importantly they know who to take silly chances with.

    From some of these comments about this NON ISSUE, i can see where Freundel thinkd that Colonialism is the cause of us having to spend so much money, we still trying to stay in line with our old Slave masters, we don’t seem to realise YET that we are FREE AT LAST.
