It’s not a secret: Rihanna is sassy af. The singer, fashion designer, and beauty mogul has an attitude, and she’s not afraid to flaunt it. Rihanna clap backs have always been legendary – remember when she "ran out of f*cks to give" about being photographed smoking weed? Or her infamous "reggae song at an airport" diss of Diplo?
It only makes sense that Rihanna is currently clapping back on behalf of her instant-classic makeup line, Fenty Beauty. Fenty Beauty – and Rihanna herself – are responding to Fenty Beauty haters, fans, and customers on social media with sass and candor. Whether they're questioning Fenty's inclusive shades or claiming red lipstick isn't for everyone, these critics got a swift reply.

Rihanna made a callback to this famous clapback by naming her black satin liquid liner "Cuz I'm Black."
Her Brand Doesn't Care About Being Modest
Misleading headlines be damned. When @thepooluk tweeted out an article on Fenty Beauty in October 2017, asking, "Is it any good?," the brand did not hesitate to retweet with a simple, sassy spoiler alert: "It is."
She Was Not Having It When Fans Questioned The Name
When Rihanna launched Fenty Beauty, many fans were mystified by the name, not realizing that "Fenty" is actually Rihanna's last name. RiRi was shook that her Navy didn't know her real name, and posted a side-eyed selfie on Instagram with the caption "When people ask how I came up with #FENTY..."
