Rihanna Tweeted “#FreePalestine” on Tuesday before deleting it.
No explanation was given, but screen captures were obtained.
The pop diva's message came as a proposed cease-fire between Israel and Hamas was abandoned amid attacks from militants on the Gaza strip.
#FreePalestine? #FreeTheNipple? The issues of our time.
Rihanna has not commented on the decision to post the message, her decision pull the message, or her thoughts on the international conflict overall.
In related news, NBA star Dwight Howard alsotweeted “#FreePalestine” on Saturday only to pull the Tweet, later apologizing and calling it a “mistake.”
Again, no explanation from the singer so far, but this makes Rihanna Twerking highlights seem delightfully uncontroversial, don't you think?
