For the uninformed, Rihanna, on Tuesday night, had spoken about the ongoing farmers’ protest in a tweet that made her a top trend on Twitter. Rihanna had posted a news story about the protests, and wrote, “Why aren’t we talking about this?!”
After seeing her tweet, Punjabi star Diljit Dosanjh expressed gratitude in the most subtle way. He took to his Instagram story and shared a photo of Rihanna with the song ‘Run This Town‘ by Jay Z playing in the backdrop.
However, actor Kangana Ranaut had slammed Rihanna in response to her tweet and had said, “No one is talking about it because they are not farmers they are terrorists who are trying to divide India, so that China can take over our vulnerable broken nation and make it a Chinese colony much like USA… Sit down you fool, we are not selling our nation like you dummies.”
After Kangana slammed Rihanna on Twitter, Diljit had also tweeted, “Jaat Di Kohr Kirli Shateeriyan Nu Jaffe… (Your status is insignificant but you know how to talk big).”
