Shortly after that video Rihanna's friend and hairstylist Yusef posted a video of himself singing the same song in a wig, a snapback and sneaks. Coincidence? Not likely! Rihanna captioned the video: "B!t$#es be like…yasssss".
Girl if that ain't SHADE. I DON'T WHAT IS.
So naturally when Teyana Taylor saw it she was not happy. Here's her tweets toward the SHADE:
“Honestly, I just finished making the wig. I started making the video. It was amazing, no malicious intent towards Teyana,” he said. “I just think it was uncalled for.” “Teyana killed that song.”
Williams admitted that though he doesn’t know Taylor personally, they have mutual friends.
When asked if Rihanna took Taylor’s tweets personally, Williams said the Diamonds singer is too focused with her work to be going back and forth with Taylor.
“She [Rihanna] could care less. It was funny. Thats whats so funny. It wasn’t like that.,” he said. “She doesn’t care., that’s her personality.”
Williams also defended Rihanna and said she’s no “cyber bully.”
“Cyber bully is harsh word. She is focused, being Rihanna. She is not sitting around. She didn’t grab her phone. She is the most kind and giving person. I just think for that to go the way it went, it was uncalled for.”
In an earlier statement, Williams said that Taylor took the video and “ran like the wind.”
“It turned into this big drama, but I guess it was all good at the end of the day to help with her new album. A little publicity doesn’t hurt good or bad these days,” he wrote.

Miss Taylor first (before the image above) started sending abusive and offensive tweets/retweets to Rihanna for over a period of 8 hours. This is not about RIHANNA, this is about all the ABUSED WOMEN of the world being MOCKED! IT IS A SHAME that ADIDAS seems to be endorsing @TEYANATAYLOR!
We demand that you do the right thing and terminate her contract and send a strong message to your consumers! Letting one of your sponsors mock a domestic violence victim discourages your female customers from speaking out against their abusers!!!
The petition has been gathering momentum and we thank the following blogs for their support;

"Rihanna has many young fans that look up to her and bullying is a HUGE problem that we are facing with the youth today. She is known for constantly bullying and picking fights with people over the internet and this is a problem that has been going on for a while now. By consistently attacking people online about their looks and reminding them how they are beneath her, she is using her platform in a very negative light and does not provide a positive image for MAC cosmetics or any of the other companies that she endorses. She is a poor role model and promotes habitual drug use."
"The effects of cyber-bullying will stunt the growth of our beautiful nation by weakening the psyche of the women of tomorrow who will lead us into the next century. Is this someone who you want representing your brand? It's time that Rihanna learns that bullying is UNACCEPTABLE and will not be tolerated!"
