Shaquille O’Neal tells Rihanna’s critics like Donald Trump to ‘shut the f*** up’ after the former President’s stinging criticism of her Super Bowl halftime show, before saying there is ‘TOO MUCH freedom’ in the world
Shaquille O’Neal launched into an explosive rant against Rihanna’s detractors following her controversial Super Bowl halftime performance, telling them to ‘shut the f*** up.’
The ‘B*** Better Have My Money’ singer grabbed her crotch and appeared to then sniff her fingers which caused the likes of former President Donald Trump, rapper Kodak Black and wrestling legend, Bill Goldberg.
‘All you people disrespecting my Rihanna, shut your face,’ O’Neal said on The Big Podcast with Shaq.
‘Shut it up. We living in a world where people got too much freedom. Keep your f***** to yourself,’ he continued.
Shaquille O’Neal went on a rant against Rihanna critics, seemingly referring to Donald Trump
‘She did a wonderful job, she’s pregnant, she blessed it…. just leave it there. All you superstars that’s disrespectful and causing beef… shut yo face, shut it up.
‘If she was my woman and I seen one of you superstars do that. I’m gonna have to get at ya. Rappers. Presidential candidates – I’m gonna have to get at you. Leave this woman alone.’
O’Neal seemed to be referencing both Trump and Black, who were vocal in their displeasure of the Barbadian’s mini-concert.
Former President Donald Trump gave a scathing assessment of the pop star’s showing in AZ.
Black, a known Trump supporter after he pardoned the rapper’s jail sentence in 2021, concurred with the potential 2024 Presidential candidate. Trump hit out at Rihanna prior to, and following the Super Bowl.
‘Man, uncle Trump said that s*** garbage, man’ the rapper said while watching the performance at State Farm Stadium.
Trump went further, labeling it the ‘worst halftime show in Super Bowl history.’
Taking to Truth Social, Trump wrote: ‘EPIC FAIL: Rihanna gave, without question, the single worst Halftime Show in Super Bowl history — this after insulting far more than half of our Nation, which is already in serious DECLINE, with her foul and insulting language. Also, so much for her “Stylist!”‘
Prior to the performance, the Republican favorite claimed Rihanna has ‘NO TALENT!’
