Rihanna joined the long list of celebrities urging people to vote via Instagram Tuesday (Nov. 6), sharing a list of fifteen states that allow people to register to vote and cast their ballots on the same day as the elections. One commenter then questioned RiRi authority on the matter, and her response is one for the books.

“Are you even a US citizen? Honest curiosity," the Instagram user asked. The singer replied, “Nah I’m an immigrant tryna get yo country together. Did u vote?”

Rihanna additionally supported governor candidates Stacey Abrams from Georgia and Andrew Gillum from Florida on Election Day via social media. She encouraged people to go vote and stay in line.
