    Default Rihanna Accused of Cyber Bullying 16-Year-Old Fan Over Homemade "Prom Bat" Outfit



    They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery—but Rihanna is not flattered.

    In fact, the singer mocked a 16-year-old fan who recently recreated one of her red carpet looks. Alexis Carter was inspired the Alexandre Vauthier jumpsuit Rihanna wore to the 2010 Echo Awards and decided to wear a similar ensemble to her Hollywood-themed prom. "I was like, 'Oh my God, I love this outfit. I wanna go with this outfit. Let me go show my mom!' And I was like, 'Mom, mom, mom, I wanna wear this, it's cool, I love it, oh my god,'" the student told her local Fox affiliate Wednesday.

    A family friend created the ensemble, which featured a plunging neckline and "wing-like" attachments under the arms. "Everybody was saying, 'Oh my god, I love it. It looks nice. Your body looks good. It's different,'" Carter recalled. The next day, however, photos of her outfit began to circulate on social media. On Twitter, #PromBat trended, complete with altered photographs that mocked her jumpsuit.

    Rihanna also ganged up on the teen by posting a photo of picture wearing the jumpsuit (with caption "IG") alongside a photo of Carter in her recreation (with caption "Real Life") and a sad face. In another tweet, the "Jump" singer posted a photo of the teen alongside the bat-like logo of the Wu-Tang Clan.

    "I was very offended," Carter said of Rihanna's tweets. "Why throw shade on it when you had on the exact same thing? The poses was different but the outfit wasn't." She added, "She don't love her fans like she says she does." Rihanna, meanwhile, has yet to comment on the controversy via social media.

    So I guess someone has to spell it out for me, I don't get how Rihanna's tweet of "she gets it" is considered bullying. I took it as "this girl gets my style." Also, what altered photos? Am I missing something?

    If Rhi-rhi IS mocking the girl, she has no call to. The outfit is the same, minus the color. The girl just struck a much sillier pose, is all.
    But I didn't get that Rhianna was mocking her, either.

    I'm missing the mocking part too. It sounded like she was being fun about it, not mean.

    Nope, not getting it either. I'm on my phone and had to keep scrolling up to see what the hell I missed. I'm so glad that it wasn't just me.

    Count me in as confused regarding the mocking also.

    I think IG is just shorthand for instagram.

    I thought IG meant "Instagram"? But I don't know that I get it 100%.

    Ok, Instagram, that makes sense. Yeah I'm slowly becoming old and out of touch with what the kids are up to nowadays...

    Add me to the list to the "I don't get it" list.... I think, if anything, Rihanna was being playful with the fan. I would be laughing my ass off if I were the fan...

    It kind of looks like one of Pinterest "Nailed It" posts....
