She is known as “prom bat girl” on Twitter for rocking a bat-like ensemble to her high school prom. The teen got what every Rihanna fan longs for on social media…a retweet. But she didn’t quite get the shoutout she was looking for. Deets inside…
A Baltimore teen says she’s now afraid to show her face in public after being “cyber bullied” by her former idol, Rihanna.
At the time, it seemed like a good idea. She said she got many compliments from her friends gushing over the homemade designed look. But once she posted a pic of herself on Twitter…the trolls came out to mock her look. As her pic started to make it’s way around social media (with the hashtage #prombat), it caught the “Diamonds” singer attention.
Rih posted her pic twice to her Twitter account. In the first tweet Rih posted a picture of the teen alongside the Wu-Tang Clan’s symbol with the caption, “She gets it.”
In the second tweet, Rih posted a picture of herself in a green one-piece jumper with wing-like attachments alongside the teen’s batman styled one piece with the caption, “ :( “
Now the teen feels like she’s a victim of cyber bullying after her former idol posted those tweets. The Baltimore native says she’s offended that Rihanna would make fun of her (especially since she was trying to imitate her) and that she is afraid to show her face in public.
"I was very offended," Alexis said of Rihanna's tweets. "Why throw shade on it when you had on the exact same thing. The poses was different but the outfit wasn't."She added,
"She [Rihanna] don't love her fans like she says she does," Alexis said.First Rihanna’s IG is deactivated; now she’s being accused of cyber bullying on Twitter (even though plenty found her comments pretty damn funny). Should Rih just give up on social media...for a month or so?
