No one asked for her contribution, but Rihanna found it necessary to offer an articulate response to controversy over Indiana’s religious freedom law, telling an audience “f**k that s**t” during a performance at the Indianapolis March Madness Music Festival.
“Who’s feeling these new bullsh*t laws that they’re trying to pass over here?” said the singer, before adding, “I say, ‘F*ck that sh*t.”
Inviting her audience to participate in this scholarly dissection of the issue, Rihanna continued, “I wanna hear you say ‘f*ck that sh*t,’ because we’re just living our motherf*cking lives. Indiana!”
The crowd then responded with erudite chants of “f*ck that sh*t”.
One wonders what Rihanna’s response would be to the argument that the government should also force a gay-owned print shop to make “God hates fag” signs for the Westboro Baptist Church, just as opponents of religious freedom want to state to force Christian cake shops to cater for gay weddings.
Rihanna’s previous forays into politics were not notable for their sophistication. Last year, the singer was captured on video asserting that the best thing about visiting the White House is her “president is black.”
One wonders what reaction Taylor Swift would have received for saying the best thing about George W. Bush was that he was ‘white’.
Watch the video below for a philosophical breakdown of the Indiana religious freedom issue which explains why empowering the government to enforce behavior is a far greater threat than gay people going without cake or pizza.
