A group of fans of singer Rihanna, who is the on and off again girlfriend of singer, Chris Brown, have escalated their online bullying and attacks on his girlfriend, Karrueche Tran. They continue to call the model broke and basic, among other things. Not only are they insulting her online in unprovoked written attacks on social networking, they are sending these cruel statements to her pages on Twitter and Instagram.
What's ironic is Tran has made more money than the average Rihanna fan calling her "broke." Tran has made a number of paid appearances, done modeling assignments and been compensated for a role in a film. Tran has made roughly $200,000 for the aforementioned work, which exceeds the average household income in America.
Anyone who criticizes Rihanna's debauched and unethical behavior is attacked online by a select group of her fans insanely known as the "Rihanna navy." If Mother Teresa were still alive and offered constructive criticism regarding Rihanna's destructive behavior, such as her illegal drug use, alcoholism, nude pics, softcore porn music videos and chronic copyright theft, the "Rihanna navy" would have slammed Mother Teresa calling her a "broke bi*ch" who is "basic" and "she's just mad she can't twerk like Rihanna" and is "jealous Rihanna can have Chris Brown and he won't give her none."
Ironically, Rihanna's money, which her "Rihanna navy" fans tout, comes from criminal copyright infringement, which is a federal and international crime. To tout a thief stealing the property of others for undue financial enrichment, you may as well praise Madoff for stealing from many people including charities or Hitler for stealing the property and money of Holocaust victims. To steal the property of others is not an accomplishment, but a criminal disgrace.
At the end of the day, there's nothing wrong with being rich or poor, but there is something wrong with insulting and bullying people for not having material things and big bank accounts. If money is earned honestly, it is a blessing. If it is stolen, becomes the opposite to the thief. You reap what you sow.
