Ever since Rihanna tweeted about the farmer's protest happening in India, social media is filled with different reactions. While some are applauding her for raising the issue, some are criticising and trolling her. Many funny memes and jokes on Rihanna have been shared too. However, one recent tweet doing rounds on social media shows a screenshot of an alleged tweet from Rihanna that says "I pay dancers in my show more than her last five films have earned". This looks like an indirect dig at Kangana Ranaut because of the criticism that the Bollywood star has been giving away about Rihanna chiming in on the subject of India's Farmer's Protest. Rihanna Tweets About Farmer Protests in India, Leaves Indian Fans Divided.
It all started after Rihanna tweeted out to her 101 million followers that kickstarted a global chorus of support for India's farmers saying "Why aren't we talking about this?! #FarmersProtest," linking a CNN news article on the internet shutdown around New Delhi as protesters clashed with the police. However, Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut, in support of farm laws called Rihanna a "fool" and said that the protestors were not farmers but "terrorists who are trying to divide India". "No one is talking about it because they are not farmers they are terrorists who are trying to divide India, so that China can take over our vulnerable broken nation and make it a Chinese colony much like USA... Sit down you fool, we are not selling our nation like you dummies," the Panga actor tweeted.
