Over the past 24 hours, two mass shootings have occurred in the United States. On Saturday morning, 20 people were killed in a Walmart in El Paso, TX. On Sunday morning, in a separate attack, nine people were killed at a bar in Dayton, OH.
Rihanna who has been outspoken in the past about Donald Trump, took to social media on Sunday to express how she felt about his response to the shootings. In a post on her Instagram account, with a screenshot of one of his tweets, Rihanna wrote, “Um… Donald, you spelt ‘terrorism’ wrong.”
The singer, originally from Barbados continued, “Your country had 2 terrorist attacks back to back hours apart leaving almost 30 innocent people dead. This, just days after yet another terrorist attack in California, where a terrorist was able to LEGALLY purchase an assault rifle (AK-47) in Vegas, then drive hours to a food festival in Cali leaving 6 more people dead including a young infant baby boy.” Rihanna added, “Imagine a world where it’s easier to get an AK-47 than a VISA.”
Rihanna also took to Twitter to post her response to the President.
