Rihanna Uses Fenty To Make Statement Against Trump’s Controversial Immigration Policy: ”You Have to Raise as Much Awareness… And Be As Loud As Possible”

Since the start of her career, Rihanna has never been afraid to use the strength of her platform for activism.

On Sunday, the songstress turned fashion designer used her luxury brand Fenty to aim a message about immigration at Donald Trump on social media. 

Rihanna posted a photo surrounded by a diverse group of women, holding a T-shirt from her line that read “Immigrant.” In typical Rihanna fashion, the picture was accompanied with a caption that boldly tagged Donald Trump.

As an immigrant from Barbados, Rihanna opened about her views on Trump’s controversial Immigration Policy during an interview with The Root at the 2019 BET Awards. 

“I think in any situation where it’s something devastating as what’s happening in America right now with the immigrants, you have to be as loud as you can,” she said. “You have to raise as much awareness, and not just that, but just as a whole, as a nation, just put all your heads together and put your voices together and be as loud as possible, because that’s the only way politicians and the government actually listen, when they feel like their country is as concerned as the matter is concerning.”

The Grammy-Award winner released the photo just days after Trump announced plans of Immigration and Customs Enforcement deportation raids in 10 cities. He has yet to respond.
