Fact Check: No, Rihanna Didn’t Tweet This Viral Message; Here’s The Truth

A screenshot of pop star Rihanna’s tweet is doing rounds on social media where she allegedly tweeted, “Twada tweet tweet, sadda tweet prapoganda (sic)!” 

(Translation: Your tweet is tweet, my tweet is propaganda!)

The screenshot is being shared days after the 32-year-old singer retweeted a news article headlined, ‘India cuts internet around New Delhi as protesting farmers clash with police’, and wrote: “Why aren’t we talking about this? #FarmersProtest”.

Her tweet triggered a major controversy in India amid the farmers’ protest against the three farm laws, with some terming her tweet as propaganda.

A Facebook user shared the screenshot with a caption, “twadda Tweet Tweet…sadda Tweet propaganda?!?! ”

Firstly, we searched for the news regarding the tweet (screenshot) in question and couldn’t find any news report.

Then we scanned Rihanna’s Twitter account (@rihanna) and searched for the tweet in question, dated February 4, 2021, but no such message was shared on her official Twitter page. In fact, she didn’t share any tweet on February 4.

 

We then searched for the tweet through ‘Twitter advanced search’ with some keywords, but couldn’t find any tweet.

Moreover, in the viral screenshot, we also noticed a spelling error – prapoganda. The correct spelling is propaganda.

Hence, from the above information, we can say that Rihanna did not tweet the viral message. Therefore, the screenshot in question is FAKE.
