Fans may be praising Rihanna for her Super Bowl halftime performance on Sunday (Feb 12.), but Donald Trump feels a lot different. Calling her performance an epic fail” in a Truth Social post, Trump also took shots at her stylist.
The former US president wrote, “EPIC FAIL: Rihanna gave, without question, the single worst Halftime Show in Super Bowl history — This after insulting far more than half of our Nation, which is already in serious DECLINE, with her foul and insulting language. Also, so much for her “Stylist!”
The not-so-shocking comments from Trump come in response to a post made by former White House physician Ronny Jackson, who claimed last week that the “Work” singer spray painted “F*** Donald Trump on a car in Texas in 2020.
Rihanna Never Liked Trump…
The Republican’s harsh remarks came after Rihanna’s 13-minute performance on a floating stage above the NFL field during the first Super Bowl 2023 match at State Farm Stadium in Arizona. Rihanna performed a medley of her biggest hits like “Umbrella” and “We Found Love” during her first live performance in 7 years.
She was seen wearing a red jumpsuit which also revealed her baby bump as she is expecting her second baby. In an earlier post, Trump called her “talentless”. Fans took to social media and had mixed feelings about her performances.
If you aren’t aware, Rihanna has strongly opposed Trump and his policies. During a 2019 Vogue interview, Rihanna referred to Trump as the “most mentally ill man in America.” In 2020, she posted photos showing graffiti that read “F*** Trump” on a Cadillac.

Former federal prosecutor Rob Filipkowski mocked Trump’s recent remarks on Rihanna, tweeting: “Mr. Sunshine and Happiness weighs in.” Rep. Ronny Jackson, on the other hand, referenced the social media post while calling on the NFL to replace Rihanna. He accused her of making a career of spewing degenerate filth while badmouthing America every chance she gets.”
“Why is the NFL showcasing this crap? Rihanna SHOULD NOT be the halftime performer!!” he expressed. Other conservatives also came forward to accuse the star, expressing that she should have been replaced by Chris Stapleton. But again, beyond this madness, Rihann’as fans rejoiced to see the star’s comeback.
Recently, Coldplay’s Chris Martin described Rihanna as the “best singer of all time”. As for her performance, Rihanna recently expressed this feeling in an interview: “When you become a mom, there’s something that just happens where you feel like you can take on the world. You can do anything, and the Super Bowl is one of the biggest stages in the world. What do you think of her Super Bowl halftime performance?
