Close

Is there anything Rihanna can't do? In lew of promoting her latest Fenty Beauty products, the singer motivated Howard University students that have been protesting against inequity with the help of her music.

Students Protest Against Injustice

Recently, the college made headlines after it was revealed that employees stole about $1 million from the university's financial aid.

Of course, the students were outraged, which eventually led them to protest against the matter.

On Thursday, March 29, Riri herself decided to retweet the video of the group of students as they demonstrated in response to the incident. Although it was just like any other protest, what made it interesting is that the group chose the 30-year-old's single, "Bitch Better Have My Money" as their anthem.

Social media users immediately pointed out that the song couldn't be more fitting for the cause.

In the video, the students could be heard chanting the lyrics to Riri's song as they throw their hands up and stand in the school's administrative building.

Along with the video, the R&B songstress tweeted praise hands and flexing arm emojis.

On Wednesday, March 28, Howard University's President, Wayne Frederick released a statement revealing that the school found about the allegations in December 2016, but the students just learned the news about the incident earlier this week.

Frederick also stated that the situation was investigated and those involved were fired last year.

Fenty Beauty Gives Back

Recently, Rihanna proved again that she definitely has her fans back no matter what.

Earlier this week, a woman by the name Chiara, who goes by @OnlyForRih on Twitter explained that she came back to her hotel room only to find that all of her makeup products along with other items were stolen, Fenty Beauty decided to recount her misfortune.

Not only did the brand replace all of her stolen Fenty Beauty products, but the brand also gifted the woman some other goodies.
