Appearing as the headliner at the March Madness Music Fest in Indianapolis, tied to the Final Four festivities this weekend, pop singer Rihanna ripped into Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act, calling it a “bullsh*t law,” reports Rolling Stone.
The multi-award winning singer known for her outspoken opinions used her platform during the live-streamed concert to attack the bill signed by Governor Mike Pence and considered by many to allow discrimination against the LGBT community.
While home-viewers were unable to hear some of Rhianna’s comments which were censored, attendees at the show at White River State Park, heard the singer rip into the law prior to launching into T.I.’s “Live Your Life.”
“Who’s feeling these new bullsh*t laws that they’re trying to pass over here? I say f*ck that sh*t,” Rihanna told the crowd who responded by chanting “F*ck that sh*t.”
“We’re just living our motherf*cking lives. Indiana!” Rihanna shouted to the crowd.
Singer songwriter Jack Antonoff, of the band Fun and Bleachers made his opinion known onstage by wearing a t-shirt reading, “Protect LGBTQ Hoosiers.”
Antonoff also exhorted the crowd to donate to Freedom Indiana, a coalition of groups fighting to dismantle the RFRA.
