If you wouldn’t want a kid, your boss, or your folks to see a photo you’re thinking of sharing, best not post it anyway. Rihanna however gets a free pass. (Duh, she’s Rihanna!) No one seems to mind her endless sharing of belfies (butt-selfies) and side boobage but after posting topless photos of her from French publication Lui, Instagram hands the bad gal a ticket to detention as they take them down.
Of course Rihanna woundn’t go down with so she returns the favor by tweeting a meme for all her Navy to see.
May 4, 2014, 8:25pm – Just an ordinary night at the HQ where browsing through Instagram while waiting to get fetched is a norm yet somehow something seemed quite off. After getting a tip to check for Rihanna’s IG account, we find that the usual haven for no-makeup selfies and side boobage has been wiped out and quickly causing panic. Our faces are left blank.
10:57pm – A few hours and a couple of searches later, the account manages to re-surface, allowing those who are still up to peacefully rest their heads.
May 5, 2014 – At this point we’re still wondering if it had been a system glitch or was it purposely taken down. But after getting much hate and shade from Rihanna’s loyal flowers, Instagram releases a statement saying, “this account was mistakenly caught in one of our automated systems and very briefly disabled. We apologize for any inconvenience."
In trying to fish a couple of more clues, we find ourselves trolling back to badgalriri. To our dismay, we find it gone, AGAIN!
While Instagram claims no responsibility for this one, we all wonder if this truly marks the end of Rihanna–on social media at least. #RIPbadgalriri
