Pressure For Adidas To Drop Teyana Taylor Intensifies As Rihanna Petition Gathers Fresh Steam

Published: Thursday 26th Sep 2013 by David

Though it’s done little to tarnish her public persona in the eyes of the general public, Pop belle Rihanna has made quite the habit of using social media to mock- and in some cases bully- many a public figure.

One of these, being ‘Overdose’ sensation Ciara, whom she launched a lengthy ‘Instagram assault‘ on upon the release of her #1 single ‘Body Party’ earlier this year.

Now, after taking a seemingly unprovoked aim at Adidas ambassador Teyana Taylor this week, the ‘We Found Love‘ performer has seen thousands of web users from across the globe lend their support to her and victims of domestic violence, after a remark Taylor made pertaining the star’s abusive past.

Support, that now sings to the tune of a petition launched to see Taylor’s contract with Adidas terminated, generating more support with every passing hour.

Full story below…

Upon its launch by a Ms.Jan Brown last night, the petition- launched in response to the above Twitter header posted by Taylor- has now secured over 1,680 signatures, all of whom agree Adidas should terminate its arrangement with the ‘My Super Sweet 16′ star, as to punish her for mocking what many agree is no laughing matter.

Adidas is yet to respond.

    isn’t it clear that she mocked rihanna and not the abused women? people always reach too far and love to exaggerate

    • I love Adele ! September 26, 2013

      She shouldn’t have done that. It was just on the radio here this morning Adidas is getting flooded with complaints !

    • opd2 September 26, 2013

  7. Kim dee September 26, 2013

    I feel like Rihanna stans making it worse with petition yall need to let it go it aint that serious people have said worse things about rih.

    • opd2 September 26, 2013

  8. Aneisha September 26, 2013

    I can’t believe your endorsing Rhianna and her abuse when she started this with Teyana.
    The minute Rhianna does something chart worthy or fashionable our the first to say she doesn’t deserve it because she is not a real artist. Rhianna cant be throwing shots out there and expect to not be touched verbally.

    Get it together @grapejuice

  9. Tisha September 26, 2013

    So because Rihanna was abused in a romantic relationship no woman is allowed to fight her for a personal issue? B**** please.

    Rihanna has been living the high life and wanting to pretend she’s a thug. Well 5 yr old kids know when you run your mouth and talk smack the person you confront may fight back with more than words. Those women are idiots, Rihanna has paid the issue of abused women total dust unless it was good for her business or promo.

    I wish her luck in NY. Teyana losing Adidas won’t do s*** to her, but Ri will need to hire extra security that doesn’t know any of T’s people…those streets get dangerous at night.

    • carl September 26, 2013

      You got that right. Teyana and her friends are all over the place. It might not be Teyana but an angry person is the one Rihanna will have to worry about. If she lose her endorsement how can Rihanna live with what her fans did. I know how she will live, she will be more in the bottle and doing her coke/molly more than ever that she will become the next has been artist like the rest of them. Six feet under. Watch

  10. Nikki September 26, 2013

    Do you know how freakin stupid you sound, she is mocking her battered face from an domestic violence incident that everyone across the world knows about, it is no laughing matter, and what makes it worst is that she is friends with the person that did it and has said before that she deserves it, that coming form another WOMAN, you must be mentally challenged if you don’t see the problem with that.

    • ?? September 26, 2013

      People are still making fun of that picture as we speak. But that picture is not a actual pic of Rihanna’s face. That is a photo shop pic. Now this will be the perfect time for Teyana to tell all she knows about that 2009 fight which we all knows she knows about..

    • TRUTH SERUM September 26, 2013

      SHUT UP…

      Because Rihanna went back with the person who did that to her face…

      She did that…

      So anything that’s out there, can be used against her…

      She’s a bully her damn self, so she deserves to be ridiculed…

      • Crystal September 30, 2013

        You are Ignorant. Domestic abuse victims many times go back to their abuser. Its not a cut and dry situation. its the psychological damage and implications involved that Dumb Idiots like you need to understand. Go back and get some schooling before you post about things you know nothing of. Dumb A** this young generation. No intelligence or common sense whatsoever!

  11. MUSICHEAD September 26, 2013

    This is great publicity and exposure for Teyana. She needs to ride this wave all the way to the bank! Drop that single!!!

  12. Nikki September 26, 2013

    It’s ignorant hoodrats like you that don’t get it, it’s not about Rihanna and her stupid beefing, it’s about the fact that Teyanna thought that was ok, and funny to mock a battered woman, do you now how offensive that is to women who have suffered that trauma? She better talk to Rick Ross.

  13. Valerie (barb) September 26, 2013

    Yall know shes friends with Chris Brown right? As a friend why would you do that knowing your male friend is the reason her face got f***** up, Teyana could have easily posted a video of 1 of Rihannas hundreds of bad performances to get back at her..

    • FAF September 26, 2013

      They aren’t friends anymore… and it shut Rihanna up – thats what she gets u dont get to start it & then act like “Im cut so deeply & offended” when someone drags u …….

      • Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) September 26, 2013

        So you support domestic violence then?

        Rihanna knows there’s a line, which is why she stopped. TT crossed the line, and now she’s going to learn.

      • Valerie (barb) September 26, 2013

        I think your missing the point i know you hate Rihanna but stop letting your hate for Rihanna cloud your judgement you sayin that is basically saying yea its ok to make fun of a b**** who got her ass beat by a man… Rihanna is in the wrong and so is Teyana. @Faf

      • FAF September 26, 2013

        but not EVERYONE fights clean, though.. She got off easy w/ Ci bc she’s someone who’s still putting out successful music, Teyana doesn’t care about that she’ll still get work choreographing w/ Sean Bankhead like she’s been doing. shes worked w/ Beyonce, etc.

      • Crystal September 30, 2013

        What a dumb a** this young generation is. It didn’t shut Rihanna up. What Rihanna did was smart and let it lie as the wheels were already turning to have Teyanna be held responsible for her mockery of Domestic Violence and what she posted. You young people post the dumbest sh”t. You clearly don’t read nor do your research before posting your dumb a** sh”t on the web! No wonder your grades in school are so horrendous! Intellligence with you people must with ascertainty be a thing of the past!!!

  14. Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) September 26, 2013

    On and the idiot who was saying Britney’s ticket sales were poor, TMZ already cleared that up, her show is almost sold out.

  15. EricArmand September 26, 2013

    Rihanna is not the face of domestic violence; nor does the fact that she’s been the recipient of such abuse automatically shield her from any criticism – especially when it comes as a consequence of her own irresponisble behavior. It is ridiculous to call her a social media bully, then pacify her when shots are taken back at her. This petition is a waste of time. Having been beaten is not enough to shield Rihanna from normal retaliation to offensive behavior. PERIOD!

    • SLAY_HIVE September 26, 2013

      !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. I love Adele ! September 26, 2013

    I was disgusted by that picture. Please stop posting it. It’s classless!

  17. eric September 26, 2013

    Abuse is abuse, whether it’s done in words or in pictures. Both women are wrong, but the instigator isn’t Teyana.

    • Oh Yeah!!! September 26, 2013

      rihanna is a Bully & a Whimp!

  18. xedos3 September 26, 2013

    This publicity stunt gone too for. Teyana has a song coming out soon this is a publicity stunt gone wrong

  19. Miss Breezy September 26, 2013

    Teyana did take it too far no doubt but I cant help it. It reminds of some playgroung bully s***. The bully provokes and end up getting the other person in double trouble for punching them in face. Teyana was pushed over the edge. She was mocking Rihanna and her fake ass not DV. And Im sure those stupid women were the first to complain when Rihanna didn’t bother to do s*** to be a voice for Domestic Violence, but wanted to make Chris out to be a monster at the same time. And then when people realized it wasn’t adding up, she started using the whole Im not a role model line. And started taking the bad b**** route.

    • FAF September 26, 2013

      ^^ Thank u! This b**** was on diane sawyer throwing CB under the bus & then wanna use him to sell her wack album

  20. Amberly September 26, 2013

    Usually I would not say anything (because it’s foolery and honestly, the people involved 10 times out of 10 really don’t care what we say), but to address the people actually signing this petition. Shame on you. I don’t know much about Teyana Taylor but I would not dare come for her money just because I’m a fan of Rihanna. Wrong is wrong. Rihanna started this mess and although Teyana should not have even fed into it, I can not fault her nor punish her for it. Don’t come for people and not expect them to comeback at you. She’s grown, she knows this (her track record of social media feuds speaks volumes). Honestly, Rihanna is not phased by this, if anything she is getting quite the laugh and satisfaction knowing her ‘navy’ is trying to bring this girl down even more. SMH..

    • Jamila September 26, 2013

      Teyana been subbing and talkin reckless bout rihanna since last year. looks like rihanna finally had enough of her fakery. Lemme call Adidas…. and sign the petition

      • Jamila September 26, 2013

        *fukkery

  21. Kylla W September 26, 2013

    I agree the hate is blinding. It’s ppl who looked at that and felt some type if way. A parody was posted. If it were a comedian who did this it would’ve been funny. If anyone besides rihanna would have posted the video would it still be bullying? This was not bullying, shade yes comedy yes, but bullying? For real. Bullying is taking time out of your day to target someone on a regular basis. Someone else told teyana bout the video and she skipped over other ways of shading her back. She already said she deserved gettin beaten and when u make comments online in a streaming video abd post a pic like this to spectators u seem as tho u condone dv! All yall assume rihanna screws the world with no proof but this appears to condone dv and yall stanning for her. Secondly, u cant bully someone who take shots at u. U are just two females who throw jabs at one another even tho this the first jab rih threw her way. And last all u rihanna haters are more of cyber bullies than rih. U wish death and diseases on this girl. U wish harmful things and rally for cb to kick her ass again. All she dies is post a pic n SHADE. never saw her wish harm. Oan yes her bad girl image is fake. Its her brand! Again her brand that she has made work for her, she is always promoting her brand. Just like bey, up until recently her fans didn’t think she used curse words! She always promoting in picture perfect brand. No she wouldn’t twitter beef its not part of her brand, but if we were flies in the wall can u all say beyonce and other artist are who they appear to be. Rick ross used to work with the corrections authority! How many real drug deals did he do?

    • Bey Fan September 26, 2013

      I was wondering why Teyanna didn’t shade the dude who actually made the video….

      • FAF September 26, 2013

        ^bc he was a PAWN he is irrelevant & if it was HIS decision, he woulda had it on HIS page, but R**** was too scared to act it out (she couldnt bc she can’t sing like Teyana) so she had someone else do it calling Teyana a man (she couldve used MANlissa d*** ass, tbh)

  22. Bey Fan September 26, 2013

    This is why I love Beyonce…lmaoo.

    But seriously.. maybe Teyanna did cross the line. But when you’re arguing/fighting , is there really a line you don’t cross? I mean I don’t know Teyanna’s insecurities or hurts. Maybe what Rihanna did really affected her.

    I just dont think it’s that serious. Rihanna shade is classic. She knows how the shade. Im still riding with Rihanna on this. But I dont think its that serious.

  23. Jamila September 26, 2013

    LADIES AND GENTLEMEN THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU WANT TO PROVE STREET CRED. TEYANA U NEVER MESS UP YOUR MONEY.

    • FAF September 26, 2013

      Wheres the money getting messed up? LMAOOOO CB had petitons all his career what did they stop??????? The n**** still won a grammy a cpl yrs ago & still has endorsements

  24. Idfafeither September 26, 2013

    Smh … Rihanna been bullying people over and over and now all of a sudden ya care about how “other woman in the world feel” ,.. GTFOH !!! Bullying has cost soo many people their lives but because she didn’t upload a picture mocking it.. It’s okay? Drink Bleach ! Rihanna is wrong and now she’s sitting back letting her falls do her dirty work.

    • MUSICHEAD September 26, 2013

      Well said!!

  25. Zuccherro September 26, 2013

    Forget a picture Rihanna needs her ass beat again! Now all her fans wants to put out a petition but you guys aren’t getting paid from it! You get what you deserve when you try to bully others

  26. christinastherealtalent September 26, 2013

    Rihanna started all this b******* and drama. Like that saying goes “if you cant take the heat then stay out of the kitchen.”

    Rihanna throws out so much shade to people and when it comes back two-fold, her and her fans unleash a war on everything and everybody.

  27. JER September 26, 2013

    i am DYINGGGG! All Rihanna has to do is upload a video of an ugly man singing in a busted wig and the GUILTY lash out and go f****** CRAZY!!!! The miserable, lonely, and DEPRESSED queens that scour the internet looking for shade need to have every seat in every stadium. It amazes me the time people have on their hands to do all of that.

  28. Patrick September 27, 2013

    Rihanna mocked domestic violence when she ran back to Chris Brown and made the song “Nobody’s Business”. She played all of you, and is an all around horrible person. She cant use the Domestic thing to her advantage now, that ship has sailed when she went running back to that d***** bag. Sorry Navy, nice try losers.

    • Crystal September 30, 2013

      You truly are one Ignorant and I do mean Ignorant A** generation. Do you Imbeciles in your youth even understand the psychological ramnifications involved with domestic abuse. For you to make such a Dumb A**, Ignorant, Ridiculous statement is just beyond words or comprehension. Go take a course on Domestic Abuse, Domestic Violence and educate your Dumb A** generation. Please do us that favor! Signing off, can’t take reading the Stupidity of some of your comments.! Too much to wrap my brain around at this time of day!
