So by now you’ve probably heard the new Rihanna single, We Found Love, which was released because apparently there’s something in her contract about how she needs to release a new single every two weeks because people have the attention span of a goldfish that’s drinking to forget. Anyway, BBC is reporting that RiRi decided to film the video for it topless in Ireland for some reason (WOO! Represent!) when an Irish farmer came out and asked her to cover up a bit. Of course, the two of them were very cordial and gracious about the whole thing and HAHA! Just kidding. This happened.
“I thought it was inappropriate. I requested them to stop and they did,” he explained. “I had my conversation with Rihanna and I hope she understands where I’m coming from. We shook hands,” he said. “From my point of view, it was my land, I have an ethos and I felt it was inappropriate. I wish no ill will against Rihanna and her friends. Perhaps they could acquaint themselves with a greater God,” he said.
Wait, what the shit? Look, my grandparents are immigrants from Ireland, and my family is very Irish Catholic, so I’m in the same boat religiously as this guy. That being said, “a greater God”? Really? You’re going to go down this road? Okay then. Look, I don’t care what religion or belief system you belong to, but you can’t just assume that your religion is empirically better than everyone else’s because religion is not an objective thing that can be measured scientifically. Everyone is entitled to the belief that best suits them, but to assume that your belief is better than others? Shitty.
