Rihanna Calls Out Donald Trump After Dayton & El Paso Shootings

Rihanna is just one of multiple celebrities that have spoken out about the two recent mass shootings in the U.S. On Saturday morning (August 3), a shopping occurred in a shopping center in El Paso, Texas, leaving 20 people dead. Just 13 hours later, another shooting happened in Dayton, Ohio, which caused 10 more fatalities, including the shooter. Donald Trump tweeted out "Today's shooting in El Paso, Texas, was not only tragic, it was an act of cowardice. I know that I stand with everyone in this Country to condemn today's hateful act. There are no reasons or excuses that will ever justify killing innocent people...."

In response Rihanna decided to go after Donald Trump's choice of words and questioned the gun laws of the United States in an Instagram post.

“Um… Donald, you spelt “terrorism” wrong! 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!

“Imagine a world where it’s easier to get an AK-47 than a VISA! Imagine a world where they build a wall to keep terrorists IN AMERICA!!! My prayers and deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of all the victims from Texas, California, and Ohio! I’m so sorry for your loss! Nobody deserves to die like this! NOBODY!”

Rihanna isn't alone in her stance. Winnie Harlow, Snow Tha Product, T.I. and many other notable names are applauding her statement.
