Rihanna is nice in that she held a contest among her fans to raise money for charity. She visited the winning school — but there was one problem — she couldn’t show up in time. In fact, she made this poor kids wait a whopping total of four hours before gracing them with her presence. In addition, she totally bailed on them after being there for a whole sixteen minutes. Stay classy, Rihanna!
On my way to Barrington High School in Chicago!” she tweeted Friday. “I can’t wait to meet these kids man! They’re major inspirational life changers.”
But the star didn’t get to meet her young fans as soon as she thought. “This Chicago traffic is not working,” Rihanna tweeted with a picture of her car sitting in traffic.
As she waited, Rihanna praised Barrington High School’s hard work on Twitter by sharing some facts. “They raised 40 thousand dollars for Joplin Missouri after the tragic tornado hit Missouri in May last year,” she wrote. “They participated in the relay for life for the American Cancer Society and raised $700,000.”
“They partnered up with Gigi’s Playhouse a Down syndrome awareness center and created a video for their banquet and raised 245,000,” she continued. “They travel to S. Dakota every year to help the people of the Native American community on the crow creek reservation! They raised $35,000 to build houses and help meet the needs of the communities.”
