Rihanna takes back her controversial tweet!

If there is one thing celebrities shouldn’t really get involved in –  its politics.

However that’s what happened to the Rude Boy singer this evening, when she accidently sent a tweet about the Middle East conflict.

RiRi tweeted the hashtag #freepalestine shortly after the proposed cease fire in the conflict fell through.

One source said that the tweet was a complete accident and RiRi didn’t realise she had even sent the controversial message “…until she started hearing from her fans.”

The source says Rihanna was reading about the Middle East conflict online when she clicked a link by accident.

Apparently Rihanna is neither pro-Palestine or pro-Israel … “she is pro-peace,” saying, “She doesn’t want innocent people dying.”

Hmmm, makes sense but Rihanna definitely needs to be more careful with what she tweets in future.
