Rihanna was using her platform to encourage people to Rock the Vote
In the course of #BlackOutTuesday earlier this week, politicians and celebrities were wanted to ensure the public won’t be so caught up in the movement forgetting that many states were holding primary elections. Pennsylvania, Maryland, Indiana, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Iowa, Montana, New Mexico, and Washington, D. C held congressional primary elections. Earlier Rihanna took to her Instagram page to motivate people to vote. Most of her followers supported her efforts, but one wasn’t that thrilled.
“VOTE. Ya ain’t got sh*t else to do man!” the singer penned in a caption to a photo that listed the eight states holding elections along with D.C. “Get yo ass off the couch and go vote!!! I don’t wanna hear another excuse!! Stop believing that your vote and voice don’t matter! This the illest way to protest…vote for the change you want!!!” One fan didn’t agree with Rihanna, so they replied, “Voting ain’t gon change sh*t.”
