Rita Ora Poses With Gold Guns, Takes Heat From Fans
The Roc Nation camp seems to be having issues with political correctness these days. Jay-Z had his share of attacks last week for his song, ‘Open Letter’, and now his artist Rita Ora is getting her own.
The British singer is taking a lot of hits for a photo she posted on Instagram, in which she appears holding fake gold guns with Adrienne Bailon and Cassie. The three entertainers were standing on a balcony at night, each decked out in black-and-white attire and holding up the glowing oozies.
“#rockabyeangels @cassiesuper @adrienne_bailon #fakegoldguns of course!” Rita wrote as the photo’s caption.
Ora may have picked the absolute wrong time to joke around with fake weapons, especially with gun violence and reform being a hot button issue in America.
And a quick look at the comments sections of her Instagram page shows many people were turned off for that reason. Instagram user swedishmafiaah wrote in a sarcastic tone, “Great idea girls…especially after everything that’s going on lately…. Real smart….. What wonderful role models you must be.”
The photo was also posted prior to the Boston Marathon bombings on Monday. Ora acknowledged the tragedy by posting an image reading, “Pray for Boston” after the photo of her packing her gold heat.
Instagram commenter jeffandtara wrote that the photo would still be insensitive regardless of whether a tragedy happened around the same time or not. “Has nothing to do with today… juvenile no matter the day!! Grow up… NO class!!”
Commenters also took the time to point out that Bailon and Ora both happen to be ex-girlfriends of the same guy, Rob Kardashian. It’s good to see these ladies are cool knowing that fact though.
No need to fight over old news. But all in all, it’s obvious the guns in the photo are a much bigger offense to people than the two ladies kicking it with each other.
