Rihanna's 'Bitch Better Have My Money' Becomes Protest Anthem For Howard University Students

Rihanna always has her fans’ backs, especially when they’re rising up against injustice with a little help from her music.

Howard University in Washington, D.C. has been in the news after a recent scandal revealed that employees stole about $1 million from the school’s financial aid. As expected, the students were outraged and led a protest on Thursday (Mar. 29). With money missing, the protesters chose a fitting anthem for their cause: RiRi’s “Bitch Better Have My Money.”

The R&B songstress retweeted a video of the protest, showing a massive group of students flooding the administrative building of the school shouting the song’s hardcore lyrics. Rihanna added a flexing arm and a raising hands emoji to her caption. See below.
