She just clicked a link...
Rihanna caused a bit of a stir on social media this morning after she posted a message on Twitter with just the hashtag #FreePalestine, but according to a source close to her she didn't mean to send it out. TMZ reports that the pop singer deleted the tweet within eight minutes because, as the source says, she didn't realize she was sending a message at all.
According to the source, Rihanna was reading an article about the Middle East conflict and clicked a link, which apparently sent out the message without her realizing it. "She deleted it because it was never meant to be tweeted," the insider said. "She didn't even realize it was a tweet until she started hearing from her fans."
They added that Rihanna is neither pro-Palestine or pro-Israel, saying, "she is pro-peace. She doesn't want innocent people dying."
