Rihanna has publicly criticized Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
The singer, who spoke out against the controversial pro-discrimination bill during her headlining set at the March Madness Music Fest in White River State Park, Indiana, told the crowd that the state’s lawmakers should let people ‘live their lives’.
‘Who’s feeling these new bullshit laws that they’re trying to pass over here? I say f**k that sh*t,’ she exclaimed, before getting the crowd to chant: ‘F**k that sh*t.’
‘We’re just living our motherf**king lives, Indiana,’ added the star.
Rihanna isn’t the first popstar to speak out against religious freedom laws. Miley Cyrus took to Twitter last week and asked her millions of followers to help her ‘Stir Some Sh*t Up’ for Senator Tom Cotton, who argued that gays need perspective when it comes to laws that discriminate against them in the US.
Meanwhile, George Takei has urged people to remember that despite amendments being made to the bill by Governor Mike Pence last week, gay people in Indiana can still be fired on the grounds of their sexuality.
