Last week, Pharrell Williams sent Trump a legal threat letter for playing “Happy” after the synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh. Now, Rihanna has also clapped back at Donald Trump after he decided to use her music at Republican rallies without her permission.
Over the weekend, Trump attended a rally in Chattanooga, Tennessee, where he was supporting Marsha Blackburn, who is running for the Senate in Tuesday’s midterms. In response, Rihanna took to Twitter to offer a strongly worded warning when she found out that Trump decided to use 2007’s “Don’t Stop The Music.”
Not for much longer…me nor my people would ever be at or around one of those tragic rallies, so thanks for the heads up philip! https://t.co/dRgRi06GrJ

According to another tweet that Rihanna was responding to, her hit track was playing as “free Trump t-shirts” were being launched into the crowd.
A few hours before the rally, Rihanna openly backed Democratic candidate Andrew Gillum as Governor of Florida on Instragram. The “Work” singer stated that “the US has only had four black Governors in its entire history and we can help make #AndrewGillum the next one and Florida’s first.”

FLORIDA: You have the opportunity to make history this election. The US has only had four black Governors in its entire history, and we can help make #AndrewGillum the next one and Florida’s first! If you’re tired of feeling like you don’t matter in the political process, know the most important thing you can do in supporting a candidate is finding someone who will take on critical issues such as: making minimum wage a livable wage, paying teachers what their worth, ensuring criminal justice reform, making healthcare a right, and repealing Stand Your Ground. That’s a platform we MUST support. Let’s #bringithome, Florida. Vote @andrewgillum. And VOTE YES on Amendment 4 to restore voting rights to folks who have already paid their debt to society. VOTE on November 6th!
