Rihanna Calls Rachel Dolezal a 'Hero,' Twitter Erupts with Backlash

Rihanna is facing some backlash for her Vanity Fair cover story, where she called Rachel Dolezal a “hero.”

“I think she was a bit of a hero, because she kind of flipped on society a little bit. Is it such a horrible thing that she pretended to be black? Black is a great thing, and I think she legit changed people’s perspective a bit and woke people up,” the 27-year-old entertainer told the mag. If you don’t know Rachel‘s story, she is a former NAACP leader who lied about being black.

Twitter exploded over Rihanna‘s quote, and people were quick to make their opinion about Rachel known.
