Rihanna Fan Prom Bat Diss Says Love Me Do Not Copy Me?

Rihanna Fan Prom Bat Diss Says Love Me Do Not Copy Me?
It seems that Rihanna let her base instincts as a female of the species get the better of her when she dissed a fan being picked on by Twitter, calling her a prom bat, after the 16 year-old wore a similar outfit to Rihanna’s 2010 catsuit, looks like the singer is saying “love me but do not copy me.” Catsuit copying apparently brings out the claws in a meow type attack on the teenager from the 26 year-old singer.

Alexis Carter wanted to replicate the outfit that made Rihanna turn a lot of heads back in 2010. A family friend made the catsuit, which has now been dubbed a “batsuit” for her junior prom which had a Hollywood theme. The award winning singer posted on Twitter showing her version of the body hugging, cleavage baring outfit with IG under the photo. Next to her picture is the photo of Alexis in her version with Real Life under the picture. At the bottom of the tweet in her caption, Rihanna posted a frowny face.

While many jumped to accuse Rihanna of dissing her teen fan, whose outfit trended on Twitter with the hashtag #PromBat, it does seem that the singer is saying to her followers that it is okay to love her but not to copy her style. Although there could be a much simpler, and less antagonistic reason for the frowny face on Rihanna’s tweet.

Firstly, it should be pointed out that like every Hollywood cliche about women and their distaste at any other female dressing the same as them at any event, Rihanna could have let her baser instincts bring that catty reaction to the fore, regardless of the younger girl’s age. Or, given the pose that the 16 year-old is holding in the “comparison” picture, the singer may just be stating that that “look” wasn’t very flattering for the outfit.

Before looking at the other pictures taken of the 16 year-old high school student, it may go without saying that at that age wearing such a revealing outfit was not perhaps the best idea. While leaving very little to the imagination is a signature of Rihanna’s, a 16 year-old girl probably should not be emulating this much sexuality, unless her name is Miley Cyrus…

Interestingly enough, there have been no reports of what Momma, or Poppa, Carter thought of the outfit or even what they thought of the social media backlash. Moving on, the the second conclusion of the “prom cat/bat” suit, again ties into the the picture chosen by Rihanna to compare with, this snap does seem to have been done for comic effect by Alexis.

Rihanna Fan Prom Bat Diss Says Love Me Do Not Copy Me?
Rihanna apparently missing the humor intended in Alexis’ photo.

With her arms and legs spread wide, she is apparently “mugging” for the camera on her red carpet. Clearly this was a “for fun” photograph as a 16 year-old in this “day and age” surely knows that this pose is not sexy at all. It is, in fact, the most redeeming part of the whole issue. It is clear that Alexis wanted to replicate what she thought was a “cool” outfit, nevermind that way too much cleavage is on show for an under-18 child she was having fun with it.

Rihanna may stand accused of a “Prom Bat” diss and she could even be saying to her fans to love her, not copy her, but it seems more likely that she failed to see the humor in Alexis’ photo. As did most on Twitter apparently. Looking at other pictures on the Inernet of Ms Carter in the outfit, it is clear that the girl can look very sexy and attractive in this revealing catsuit. It does beg the question as to why the “bat photo” was leapt on by those who wanted to poke fun and not these “prettier” pictures. It is as confusing as Rihanna’s reaction to the pictures. Harking back to Miley Cyrus for a moment, in all likelihood Miley would have applauded the girl for her outfit choice while, at the same time, chastised her for wearing too much.

    I like how the author conveniently ignores Rihanna’s tweet about her favorite “PromBat” joke being “The Dark Thot Rises” (“Thot” is slang for HO), and her other tweet making fun of the girl by comparing her dress to the Wu-Tang logo. Rihanna didn’t just tweet once about this girl, but THRICE. Why cherrypick her most ambiguous tweet, and ignore the other two worse ones?

    You can KINDA argue that the frown face tweet was ambiguous, but her “Dark Thot” and Wu-Tang tweet was unambiguously messed up. She was clearly laughing at the girl’s expense…a girl who (yes, misguidedly and stupidly, as teen girls often do towards all the wrong people) used to look up to her and want to be like her.

    There is no way whatsoever to defend Rihanna here, and it’s shameful to see this author here even attempt to do so. If Rihanna can’t be nice to a fan who wants to emulate her, or at least have the decency to keep her mouth shut if she has nothing nice to say, then she’s an even worse person than I already thought, and she doesn’t deserve any fans at all.

    rihanna should be ashamed of herself for stealing this little girls joy! did Rihanna go to prom or college? I think she forgot where she came from. no wonder she can’t keep a man. her arrogant antics will catch up with her. she is nowhere near the caliber of artists like taylor swift, lady gaga or even katy perry. the always acknowledge their fans when receiving awards. she will never be artist of the year. what artist belittles fans? who does that? she needs to look in the mirror and remember where she came from and who?(fans) got her where she is. did she win anything at the billboards? not!! i will not spend one more penny on that twit twat. she really has sold her soul to the devil.

    Very juvenile Rihanna. Apologize, have some consideration for this CHILD who admired your style & stop acting like rotten, spoiled brat. Pathetic behavior from someone who is chronologically an adult.

      Why should she now apolgize? If the child felt wronged by Rihanna she should have addressed Rihanna and maybe that apology might have followed. However, her and her parents thought it more lucrative to address various media with the story. The teen now i am sure has the fame she craved and i am sure she is all fine now. They as well as these other enablers who HATE (Yes..I said it) Rihanna would encourage this even more deviant behavior where she is taught now if someone criticizes you or anything you have on go full out to play the victim card and do whatever is necessary to destroy that person. Instead of being taught in that in life these things may occur but to turn negative to a positive or as the older and wiser ones say take the limes and make lemonade.If a teacher or a boss later tells her something she does not like then what? Or a guy says he does not like how she looks? Then what? I stead of teaching her to love herself and be confident a lot of these people and her parents are teaching her to wallow in hate,Sad fact.

    Do unto others as you’d have them do unto you… Wonder how Rihanna would feel if all her fans started treating her that way instead of saying “queen” or “I love you Riri” they’d start putting frown faces and rude comments…I used to be a fan of hers, but now I’m just plain sick of her…. loser~move on!!!!

    Some of you aren’t even getting it. As a so called star, which we all are, Ri has the advantage of really damaging her fan spirits when they try to emulate her and it don’t turn out the same.The girl was only sixteen and it she had any kind of tutelage of herself Rihanna would have known not to comment the way she did. All of you can take up for her and take part of her saying and doing what she does to many of her fans. This isn’t the first time she has came off as a big insecure bully. Also. hate to break the news to some of you what this young lady wore is far much attire that some prom attendees wear. Back out dresses with no bras, side outs wearing no panties, so what she wore was very ideal for what these teens are wearing in this age. Look at what’s on TV and in the magazines and on the internet. They wear what they see. So, Riri when you start looking out across the concerts seats and see less and less people looking at your performances. Watch it girl.

    Rihanna did not call her a prom bat the rest of twitter did that it was trending before she even said anything about it and if girl wasn’t posing like that then maybe she wouldn’t have looked so ridiculousb

    I find it concerning that this journalist has looked up the 16 year old girl in question and is commenting on her sexiness, especially seeing as they kept emphasizing her being a minor.

      Not quite sure you get the point matey, the entire point of the article was that Rihanna obviously found the young lady threatening since she looked at least as good as the singer did in her designer outfit. As to looking up the pictures; they were all over the internet. You also clearly missed the statement of the author’s approval of the “kids” mugging shot where she was just obviously having fun for the camera. That pose, as stated, was the only redeeming thing about her dressing “too grown up.” Your implication that some sort of stalking took place is both groundless pap and tasteless in the extreme.

    Its sad when somebody looks up to you, that person has to be shot down by the person be ing looked up to. I think Rihanna should not have said anything at all.

    Rhianna has power and she humiliated a powerless 16 year old girl who looked up to her. Rhianna is evil.

    Folk jumping all over frivolous s h i t and there are plenty other important things to worry about than an outfit that I personally think was inappropriate for a 16-year-old as a prom dress.

    What exactly do you mean by “baser instincts”? I don’t think all women are naturally inclined to be critical of each other and I think it is sexist and offensive to imply such a thing.

      It is baser instincts. As children, young girls can be competitive like this. Through education, women learn to behave differently. Sometimes though, things can get the better us. I’m a woman and personally know other women who have behaved like this in the past. If you’re truthful with yourself, I’m sure you know a few who have too. We’re human after all and make mistakes. Men have similar issues and I have personally seen that they can actually be even more competitive than women. So, I didn’t take what the writer said as being sexist, but rather stating hard reality. Be careful not to mistake truthfulness as being offensive. The truth can hurt sometimes. With that said, how can we get behavior like this to stop or at least make other people (women and men) become more aware that it’s an unbecoming behavior if we can’t address it honestly?

        It IS sexist. if it wasn’t he would’ve just said base instincts its the unnecessary addition of AS A WOMAN. that are out of line as well as the entire tone of the article, and his other problematic phrasing.
