Rihanna posed makeup-free with her parents, and the singer’s fans started to argue about her parents and their race. You can check it out for yourselves below. It’s the photo shared by The Shade Room on Instagram.
‘Her pops cooley or some type of islander. But he isn’t white. You have blacks with the same hair texture and complexion. By now I swear blacks would know we come in all shades, with different textures…’ someone commented.
Another follower said ‘The pure dumb in some of these comments! Like seriously read a book and educate yourself about the diversity of Caribbean PEOPLE!’
One other person commented that ‘he is Indian mixed not white this is the Caribbean a lot of us got Indian, Asian middle eastern fathers, and grandfathers but guess what despite that our great grandaddies the blackest of the black, Caribbean love the Caribbean and our own not too strong on white love.’
Another follower wrote ‘Y’all dumb as hell if you think her dad isn’t black. We Caribbean folk come in all different colors, shapes, and personalities. Never think we aren’t black simply because we’re lighter than you wanted us to be.’
One of Rihanna’s fans just wanted to praise the singer and posted: ‘Not being mean. Honest to God. But I didn’t even know Rihanna had parents, but now I get to praise the two lovely souls that gave us this queen.? #stupidmoment.’
