On Sunday the singer responded to a Washington Post reporter’s tweet that delivered the news of how her music is being used.
Not for much longer...me nor my people would ever be at or around one of those tragic rallies, so thanks for the heads up philip! https://t.co/dRgRi06GrJ— Rihanna (@rihanna) November 5, 2018
This comes only hours after Rihanna endorsed Tallahassee mayor and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum in the midterm elections. Rihanna urged both her Instagram and Twitter followers in Florida to support Gillum as well as Amendment 4, the Voting Restoration Amendment.
“The US has only had four black Governors in its entire history, and we can help make #AndrewGillum the next one and Florida’s first!” Rihanna wrote in an Instagram post.
Last week, Pharrell Williams also showed discontent about his song “Happy” being used at the President’s rally, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The song played at a rally that took place hours after the Tree of Life shooting in Pittsburgh. The singer’s lawyer, Howard King, sent the President a cease and desist letter about the use of the song.
