While she isn’t the only Pop staple to indulge in the habit, it seems Rihanna has taken it upon herself to serve as ambassador for marijuana.
The centre of ever controversial ‘social networking‘ content, the model’s endorsement of the drug has now landed her in hot water, after members of her own fan base called her out on it.
Last night, the Pop puppet shared the above snap with the following caption:
This nug look like a skull or am I just….? instagr.am/p/UAv7x5BM0F/

However, her attempts to reinforce her ‘bad girl’ marketing ploy took a turn for the worst when she came under fire for the message, as seen below:
It’s unfortunate that in an industry which has lost so many to drugs, Rihanna sees nothing wrong with her alleged personal habit and the implications her ‘openness’ of it has on those who consider her a role model.
Sure, while it isn’t her job to raise anybody’s kid, we find it sad that the industry doesn’t do enough to drive home the negative effects of addiction- and that Rihanna’s fans and team alike seem to have turned a blind eye to what all can see is a serious problem. Let’s just hope it doesn’t go any further than it already has.
