Rihanna appears to have hit back at those who criticized her for posting a photo of a pot nugget to her Instagram account.
The Barbadian star recently published a snap of a pot nugget (above) to her Instagram account, along with the caption, “This nug [nugget] look like a skull or am I just [hallucinating]….?”
The Rihanna pot photo seemed to outrage some of those who commented on the image, and not because it totally does not look like a skull. Some of the replies included:
“Wow wat a good influence you are on young girls… not”
“I dont understand what she tryin to prove through pics of drug everyday.”
The negative comments aside, the picture was liked by more than 113,000 people on the photo-sharing site.
This is hardly the first time the 24-year-old singer has caused a furore through posting about drugs on social media. Back in April, the singer tweeted pictures of herself on the shoulders of her bodyguard as she carefully arranges white powder on the man’s head.
Many quickly suggested the powder in the snaps was cocaine, prompting a fresh round of tut-tutting from many media outlets and pundits:
Do you think the Rihanna pot photos are harmless, or do those in positions of influence need to act more responsibly? Sound off in the comments!
