The successful Barbadian singer, Rihanna, displayed a T-shirt in New York with a message that seems to demonstrate her way of thinking about the difficulties of using freedom of expression in the United States.
With the sign: “Think, while it’s still legal,” which appears on her T-shirt, she shows her support for the anti-censorship trends that singer Nicki Minaj has shown in recent days, according to the Daily Mail of Sept. 25.
“Rihanna joining the fight for free-thinking would be huge, because of the influence she has over younger Americans that are entrenched within the establishment’s backwards distortion of reality,” believes author Julian Conradson.
The author adds, “She has over 211 million followers on Instagram and Twitter alone, and millions more through other channels.”
On the other hand, despite having reached a fortune that elevates her to a billionaire category, Rihanna avoids being placed on a pedestal. She prefers to keep her feet on the ground.
“It’s scary. I do think about it all the time. I make it a point to think about it because I get scared when, you know, the pedestal comes into play, and we’ll put you up there, and they keep wanting to put you up there… I’m like, “No, I want to be on the ground,'” she stated.
She added, “I want to feel my feet on the ground because I know it’s not going to be a fall at all if anything, right?… I don’t want to be this icon… I want to remember who I am.”
Meanwhile, former Navy intelligence officer and China analyst Jack Posobiec published the news about Rihanna, replicating the Daily Mail headline.
“Rihanna makes a political statement in a slogan T-shirt as she heads to a studio in New York City.”
In response to Posobiec’s tweet, netizen @SarahCo35856822 considers it possible that Rihanna’s message is a show of support for Minaj, given that they are friends.
“They’re friends so it might be they share similar ideals. Or so I’d like to think,” she wrote.
When in doubt, Twitter user @pippa_sweet_, wrote that Rihanna’s message is simply logical and acceptable.
“Why do you automatically assume the worst? The t-shirt makes a simple statement with which I think we can all agree. I’m going to buy one.”
Singer Nicki Minaj, for her part, was attacked and discredited, among others by White House medical advisor Anthony Fauci, for tweets in which she outlined the reasons why she hesitated to take the experimental vaccine against COVID-19.
In this context, activist Candace Owens joined Fox News host Tucker Carlson to discuss the political outrage shown by much of the left and sectors that adhere to it.
In turn, Minaj did not hesitate to counterattack her critics by expressing her surprise at the objections that appeared against her opinions, in which she made use of freedom of speech.
