Don’t fuck with Rihanna. That’s a life lesson we can all take from the diva’s ruthless Twitter beef with TLC. You’re probably wondering what RiRi could possibly have against the ’90s girl group? Well, T-Boz and Chilli dared to diss the “Monster” singer’s raunchy image. “It’s easy to sell sex,” the ladies said in an Australian TV interview. “We became the biggest girl selling group of all time with our clothes on and that says a lot. We could go around too with booby cakes out all day long.”
That relatively vague statement was enough to trigger Rih’s rage. She changed her Twitter banner to an old photo of TLC posing topless and told her followers: “There’s no changing the fact that I’m me, and they’re well…they’re them.” Ouch. Rihanna’s shade is truly next-level. Never forget how she pretty much ended Teyana Taylor‘s career with a couple of tweets and humiliated Ciara by questioning her ability to book a stage. Watch T-Boz and Chilli’s interview after the jump and see RiRi’s revenge.
