Rihanna Quits Instagram Amid Topless Pic Furor, Calls Out #PHAKE Account

by at . Comments

Say goodbye to @badgalriri on Instagram. Rihanna is no longer using the social media service after her profile page was briefly disabled this month.

She has since peaced out of the photo sharing online hot spot and taken to Twitter to slam an imposter who is currently posing as the "Hard" singer.

"#PHAKE!!!! Let's be clear, I do NOT have an IG account," the 26-year-old captioned a photo of the phony account, which currently has over 250 followers.

Rihanna's Instagram was rendered inactive recently, causing many to think she was shut down for sharing the NSFW pics she frequently posts.

The company said later, "The account was mistakenly caught in one of our automated systems and very briefly disabled. We apologize for any inconvenience."

Mmm hmm. We're sure it was mistakenly caught.

Instagram took the blame for that one, but RiRi did face criticism after she shared several snapshots from her topless shoot for Lui magazine (above).

RiRi responded by posting a doctored photo of herself in extremely conservative attire, captioned, "Rih's next magazine cover if it was up to Instagram."

She also came under scrutiny for her alleged bullying of a Rihanna fan who dressed like her, and mocking Karruche Tran with a stick-figure illustration.

We'll always have Twitter. And pictures of her braless and pink haired at NBA games, and occasionally exchanging kisses with rapper Drake.

Take what you can get.

Rihanna Quotes

I get asked about it all the time and I’m like, You’re asking, but you know the answer. I don’t even like to address it anymore.

Rihanna [on rumors that she dated Jay-Z]

Sometimes you just need your privacy. But it comes with the territory. There's no privacy when you are out in the public.
