A lot of celebrities are outraged these days following the murder of George Floyd and they have been using their platforms to speaking the matter. Rihanna is one of them and after a short break from social media, here's what she had to say about this terrible tragedy:

'For the last few days, the magnitude of devastation, anger, sadness I’ve felt has been overwhelming to say the least! Watching my people get murdered and lynched day after day pushed me to a heavy place in my heart!' Rihanna began her message.

She continued and said: 'To the point of staying away from socials, just to avoid hearing the blood-curdling agony in George Floyd’s voice again, begging over and over for his life!!! The look of enticement, the pure joy, and climax on the face of this bigot, murderer, thug, pig, bum, Derek Chauvin, haunts me!! I can’t shake this! I can’t get over an ambulance pulling up to an arrest, a paramedic checking a pulse without removing the very thing that’s hindering it! Is this that fu*king normal??? If intentional MURDER is the fit consequence for “drugs” or “resisting arrest”....then what’s the fit consequence for MURDER???! #GeorgeFloyd #AhmaudArbery #BreonnaTaylor.'

Diddy hopped in the comments to show support for Rihanna.

Another commenter said: 'It’s all too fuc*ing heavy and I’m tired. The civility in me is exhausted and long gone at this point. Love you, Fave. Try to stay up. SMH.'

Someone else who seems to have returned from protesting: 'Sis I Just Came Back From Protesting !!! You Don’t Understand How The Police Was Treating Us Out There!! It’s Literally Us Against Them! We Can Literally Be Driving One Day Or Walking Home One Day && There Goes Eric Garner Or Sandra Bland Times 2 !!!! It’s Sickening We’re Tired Of Saying Another Hashtag !! OUR PEOPLE ARE LITERALLY DYING && BEING LYNCHED && SLAVED && KILLED SIS I AM JUST NOT OKAY, MATTER A FACT WE ARE NOT OK!!! THIS END’S TODAY‼️ IF THERE IS NO JUSTICE, THEN THERE IS NO PEACE.'

Another follower said: 'That man didn’t even bat an eye. You right Rih, he enjoyed every bit of it. Smh He murdered George Floyd, in broad daylight. Give that fool the ELECTRIC CHAIR!!!!'

Someone else said: 'That last line tho. Real talk... shits outrageously manipulative!!! Smh.'

A commenter posted this message for the singer: 'This is why we love you Rih you are so real, not afraid to speak up when needed,' and another follower said: 'Yes 1st degree!! And murder to the rest of the 3 this needs to change!! I'm so sorry about my own race I'm so ashamed it needs to change now!'

Rihanna made headlines not too long ago when it's been revealed that Travis Scott was once in a relationship with her at some point.
