Rihanna Endorses Democrat Andrew Gillum for Florida Governor And Tells Trump To Stop Playing Her Music
Rihanna had a rather political Sunday. First, Rih took to Instagram to publicly endorse Tallahassee mayor and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum. In her post, Rih urged her Floridian fans to vote in this year’s midterm elections on Nov 6.
“You have the opportunity to make history this election. The US has only had four black Governors in its entire history, and we can help make #AndrewGillum the next one and Florida’s first!” she said.

FLORIDA: You have the opportunity to make history this election. The US has only had four black Governors in its entire history, and we can help make #AndrewGillum the next one and Florida’s first! If you’re tired of feeling like you don’t matter in the political process, know the most important thing you can do in supporting a candidate is finding someone who will take on critical issues such as: making minimum wage a livable wage, paying teachers what their worth, ensuring criminal justice reform, making healthcare a right, and repealing Stand Your Ground. That’s a platform we MUST support. Let’s #bringithome, Florida. Vote @andrewgillum. And VOTE YES on Amendment 4 to restore voting rights to folks who have already paid their debt to society. VOTE on November 6th!
Not long after, Rihanna took to Twitter to disapprove of her music being played at Donald Trump’s rallies after reporter Phillip Rucker’s tweet.
Not for much longer…me nor my people would ever be at or around one of those tragic rallies, so thanks for the heads up philip! https://t.co/dRgRi06GrJ
