Minister Louis Farrakhan has responded to Rihanna tweeted about her Grammy outfit.
According to allhiphop, a representative for Minister Farrakhan and longstanding member of the Nation of Islam told them that Minister Louis Farrakhan would never disrespect Rihanna.
“He would never say such about Rihanna herself, the person,” a direct representative for Minister Louis Farrakhan told AllHipHop.com. “It was not the person, it was the general act and what it represents.”
To prove his point Minister Farrakhan provided a transcript and video of his comments about Rihanna’s outfit, which was fodder for numerous media outlets, including Billboard, The Huffington Post, The Guardian and others.
“The full text is offered, here, so that any evil or any ill- intended misrepresentation of his words regarding our Sister, Rihanna, would not incite our Sister or those who love her to respond negatively to the continuous effort to bring respect and the uplifting of our people,” the rep told AllHipHop.com.
Minister Farrakhan made comments about her Grammy outfits during his annual Savior’s Day speech from Rosemont, Illinois on Sunday (February 27th), that was webcast around the world.
“I saw my beautiful sister the other night at the Grammy awards. Rihanna. My poor sister, she’s dressed almost like -with a pair of draws. And she got her legs wide open and just grinding away,” Minister Farrakhan said during a portion of his annual speech.
In response, Rihanna tweeted to over 3 million followers: “A minister says I perform filthy, sat + watched the filth, then called u SWINE for doin the same! Haa, Is that judgment in ur tone? I certainly don’t think u are swine! But a holy man of God does!!!”
