Rihanna attended a performance of the popular Broadway show, Slave Play, on Saturday night (Sept. 14), which seemed fun and innocent until a thankful tweet from the playwright turned sour.
Jeremy O. Harris, the show's writer, posted a photo of himself laughing and hugging RiRi, with the caption, "Two things I learned today about the Type of theatre maker I am: When my idol texts that she’s running late. I hold the curtain for her. When my idol texts me during a play I’ve written, I respond."
Again, seemed pretty innocent, until a number of critics condemned Rihanna for "texting throughout the performance." "Stop applauding her behavior," one user added.
