Commenting on a celebrity’s Instagram article is something people do believing there’s no way they’ll get a reply, but sometimes, the biggest names in the world jump into the comment section to allow the folks know how they actually feel. Rihanna is notorious for this, and whenever she does gift her fans with a retort, it’s usually something snarky and right to the point (like all those remarks asking about where her record is).
On Tuesday, Rih posted a reminder to Instagram that a bunch of states, plus the U.S. capital, were holding primaries.
“VOTE. Ya ain’t obtained s**t else to do man! Get yo ass and go vote!!! ,” she wrote in her caption. “I don’t wanna hear another excuse!! Quit believing that your vote and voice don’t matter! This the illest way to protest…vote for the change you want!!! ”
Needless to say, exactly as with any other time anybody says something about voting, there’s always that one person who believes the entire system is rigged and voting is simply pointless. The same happened under Rihanna’s post, with a single fan commenting, “voting ain’t gon change s**t.”
More than ever, Bad Gal RiRi isn’t here for all the crap in her comment section. She responded, “Sick of hearing this! Ya know what ain’t gon change s**t? Not doing s**t!!!! ”
The issues surrounding George Floyd’s murder and the conviction of the former policemen have made it more clear that electing the appropriate people is more important than ever. Voting to ensure the appropriate people are in control of states and our cities has a greater effect than many realize, although Obviously we want that Oopma Loompa from office.
