Rihanna blast former Vice President Joe Biden after he made a gaffe about “poor kids.”
In case you see Rihanna and Joe Biden trending on Twitter today, it’s because of a statement that the politician made that infuriated the pop star. The Bajan pop princess has been very vocal about political and social issues affecting our community. Just last week, we saw her joining Cardi B in going off on President Trump following his racist statements about Baltimore and his controversial immigration policies.
The “Work” singer has now turned her attention to Joe Biden who is getting some heat this weekend for a recent statement he made while on the campaign trail. “Poor kids are just as bright as white kids,” the Vice President said. Some folks took it as him saying that poor kids are only minority children. He quickly realized what he had said and tried to correct himself, but the damage had already been done.
Rihanna pounced on his statement while calling him out for it. “Whoa! And he’s convinced he said something great here,” the singer wrote. “Even when they fake it, the truth about how they feel about us is blatant!”
Joe Biden’s choice of words seems to be getting him in trouble a lot and this is allowing his critics like President Trump to hammer him on social media. It seems Rihanna has had enough and now it’s very clear that he will not be getting her vote.
