Rihanna managed to perpetuate her image as the ultimate female Stoner within the pop princess world -again. Yesterday, February 14, Valentine’s Day 2013 – she sent up smoke signals, via Twitter, highlighting her passionate belief that marijuana helps to make her life a little more enjoyable. Unfortunately for her, not everyone thought of it quite the same way.
Rihanna has sparked a fresh controversy by tweeting a snap of a marijuana joint and a thick cloud of smoke on Valentine’s Day.
It included the slogan: “Mary Jane will be my Valentine”, in reference to a slang term for the drug. She then added the caption: “Love me…I’m #DOPE,” the Daily Star reported
Twitter followers were left reeling by the singer’s pro-drugs post, with furious mum Angie Cormier writing: “don’t tweet this crap!! My daughter looks up to you! I hope she knows not to do drugs.”
Connie Priestley added: “Rihanna makes me feel sick the way she exposes drugs all over Instagram, like young girls don’t follow her. Do it in private.”
And Julie Browne was sarcastic saying: “Rihanna is SUCH a great role model for young women – sex drugs violence and nudity.”
The singer has been widely criticized since her reunion with Brown, who assaulted her before the Grammy Awards in 2009
