Like most people, I kept waiting for Rihanna to change her mind or deny TMZ’s exclusive. Last week, TMZ broke the news that Rihanna invited Johnny Depp to be part of her Savage X Fenty Vol. 4 show.

Disgusting. For the people – Rihanna’s diehard fans – arguing that Rihanna is getting “blamed” for Depp’s actions… literally, Rihanna made the choice to publicly support a man who physically abused his then-wife Amber Heard repeatedly. This was not “Rihanna liked a stupid post on Instagram” either – do you know how many people were involved with this choice? Rihanna, her entire Fenty team, Depp and his team, and apparently no one thought it was a bad idea? It’s disgusting.
“Amber Heard ruined Johnny Depp’s life!” No, Johnny Depp destroyed Amber Heard’s life and career, made her a global target, and forced her to relive her trauma in multiple courts, only for him to be rewarded by a society intent on maintaining the patriarchal status quo https://t.co/RlflXFVtm5
