Rihanna has been doing her thing with Fenty Beauty, most recently releasing the Stunna Lip Paint to rave reviews. During her launch of the beauty collection, the foundation line received praise for its color inclusiveness. With any popular influencer, there is bound to be criticisms or questions.

According to Glamour, Fenty Beauty fan @lbertootero gave Rihanna her props for the collection, but then suggested that she include trans women when casting for the brand's next promo. Rih, who is never shy on social media, responded with firmness.

"I've had the pleasure of working with many gifted trans women throughout the years, but I don't go around doing trans castings!" she wrote to @lbertootero via DM. "Just like I don't do straight non trans women castings! I respect all women, and whether they're trans or not is none of my business! I don't think it's fair that a trans woman, or man, be used as a convenient marketing tool! Too often I see companies doing this to trans and black women alike! There's always just that one spot in the campaign for the token 'we look mad diverse' girl/guy! It's sad!"

He posted the exchange via screenshots, captioning, "When I thought she couldn't teach me more...".

Many have embraced her eloquent response and others doubled down on the importance of making a special space for the trans community.
