No Beef: Minister Farrakhan Responds To Rihanna Tweets About Grammy Outfit

It's only been a few days since the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan delivered his annual Saviours' Day keynote address on Feb. 27th at the Allstate Arena. As expected, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) released its rebuttal of the Minister's phenomenal four hour message and the pundits have weighed in on what he said regarding Muammar Gaddafi.

Surprisingly, the largest "controversy" has involved music artist Rihanna, who posted two Twitter updates on her account responding to what she obviously interpreted as a "personal attack" from Minister Farrakhan during his speech. I went to read them for myself and took a screen shot of them. See below:

From there, myself and others tweeted at Rihanna, gossip bloggers, and Hip-Hop sites, inviting them to watch the full message by Minister Farrakhan because the enemy has taken advantage of this "controversy" for a bigger reason that most people cannot see. Minister Farrakhan has a history of ending beefs within Hip-Hop and is supremely loved by music artists across all generations. AllHipHop.com, headed by Chuck Creekmur and Grouchy Gregg, is a site that has always supported Minister Farrakhan and they stepped to the plate on March 2 to get an official response from Minister Farrakhan. We appreciate them!

Here is the story by Grandmaster Grouchy Greg Watkins and Nolan Strong titled: "Exclusive: Min. Farrakhan Responds To Rihanna Tweets About Grammy Outfit"

(AllHipHop News) Minister Louis Farrakhan has been instrumental in resolving a variety of Hip-Hop beefs over the years, between rappers like 50 Cent, Ja Rule Beanie Sigel, Jadakiss, Common and Ice Cube.

Now, Minister Farrakhan is squashing a growing divide between himself and R&B singer Rihanna, over comments he made about her Grammy outfits during his annual Savior's Day speech from Rosemont, Illinois on Sunday (February 27th), that was webcast around the world.

"I saw my beautiful sister the other night at the Grammy awards. Rihanna. My poor sister, she’s dressed almost like -with a pair of draws. And she got her legs wide open and just grinding away," Minister Farrakhan said during a portion of his annual speech.

In response, Rihanna tweeted to over 3 million followers: "A minister says I perform filthy, sat + watched the filth, then called u SWINE for doin the same! Haa, Is that judgment in ur tone? I certainly don't think u are swine! But a holy man of God does!!!"

A representative for Minister Farrakhan and longstanding member of the Nation of Islam told AllHipHop.com that Minister Louis Farrakhan would never disrespect Rihanna.

"He would never say such about Rihanna herself, the person," a direct representative for Minister Louis Farrakhan told AllHipHop.com. "It was not the person, it was the general act and what it represents."

To prove his point Minister Farrakhan provided a transcript and video of his comments about Rihanna's outfit, which was fodder for numerous media outlets, including Billboard, The Huffington Post, The Guardian and others.

"The full text is offered, here, so that any evil or any ill- intended misrepresentation of his words regarding our Sister, Rihanna, would not incite our Sister or those who love her to respond negatively to the continuous effort to bring respect and the uplifting of our people," the rep told AllHipHop.com.

Text and video is below:

“…When the Mahdi (Reformer) comes, he kills the swine. It doesn't mean he just goes around killing pigs, but the demon in you is akin to the behavior of a swine. Now listen. Just see if it fits. Try it on. If it don't fit, it aint you (colloquial language for humor).

Swine love filth. How about you?"

"I saw my beautiful sister the other night at the Grammy awards. Rihanna. My poor sister, she’s dressed almost like -with a pair of draws. And she got her legs wide open and just grinding away.

“Ahhh, look at Rihanna, Go on, girl”

If that didn't revolt you, you're beginning to be a swine. When you can sit down and listen to somebody and every 3rd word is you “m-f” this. And they start talking about the act that is done in private and they bring it out in the public and make (it) so low down and filthy ; and you’re sitting there laughing at a filthy damn joke and then the next day you go to church and sing in the choir, you’re a swine.. Swine love filth. How about you?"

  1. As Salaam Alaikum! Because we have been ruined and spoiled by our open enemies, we are very sensitive to critiques by our clergy or Men of God. It is rare that our luminaries are verbally corrected and their response is submission and an admission of wrong and a promise to do better. They are told all day long that they are without spot or blemish and that it is okay to dress like the "Lady of the Night" among other things. When will our celebs learn to take responsibilty for their actions?

  2. Peace...the media's intentional distortion of the Minister's words was a part of the distraction plan to get away from the power of what he spoke. They also want to turn the youth against the Minister.

  3. AsalaamU Alykum. The truth in a wicked world will always ruffle feathers. If its the truth and nothing but the truth in Allah's spirit SO LET IT BE. Time is getting to short for us to be getting sensitive when we know were are wrong in Allah(God) eyes.

  4. Our leaders should point out behaviors that are not good for us as a community. I'm offended as a woman that she would react that way. What he said was right and exact, we as women need to know the difference between bedroom garments and behavior vs outdoor clothing and behaviors

  5. As Salaam Alaikum way to go brother you set the record straight ApdtA

  6. No teacher or preacher of the word of God approves of the performance at the NBA All-Star Game or the "showing" at the Grammys. Many Christian preachers, Muslim Imams and Jewish and Hebrew Rabbis condemn such as well. Jesus referred to people as swine who were working in an unseemly way.

    She was arguing with the singer Ciarra last week. Now she is trying to take on Minister Farrakhan.
    This young lady is not a good role model for our young sisters at all.

    The Minister is absolutely correct. This was a message to for godly folk. It's already understood that people who have a disease their hearts wouldn't understand it. And the "swine media" just had to distort his message cause they work for Deceiving One anyway. I am not surprised a bit at the whole thing.

  8. Their are many righteous men and women who disapprove of the inapropiate behavior of Rihanna and many other male as well as female performers whose behavior on and off stage only serves to demonize this and future generations of Black people world wide.They dont speak up because they have written off this entire generation.Minister Farrakhan still loves Black youth and he continues to work to guide and correct them before their lifestyle destroys more of them. Unfortunatley this young woman does not yet understand what love really is.

  9. The Hon. Minister Farrakhan is a loving father who has to speak the truth to our people. Rihanna is a young daughter of that father and took offense because deep down she knows the minister is right even though he wasn't attacking her personally. She'll get over it.

  10. farrakhan is so correct about rihanna i agree

  11. Peace...each and every time we are afforded the opportunity to correct the record and establish truth we should! This particular blog does just that!! As the ADL and their media flunkies continue to cloud and alter a CLEAR truth... we too, as students and followers of truth should systematically and methodically push back against all said attacks! Thanx to Bro Jesse for being that EXAMPLE!

    Bro. Philip A. Muhammad

  12. Salaam!!!

    To my dear sister rihanna "you shall know the truth and truth shall set you free" Sista you know that you were dancing like a stripper half naked.You are better than that!you can still be successful with out the filth.Who ever is encouraging you to do that kind of stuff Certainly does not have your best interest at heart.They are just misusing you. Peace!!!

  13. Man Rihanna is always getting upset if someone doesn't like her performances....she needs to sit down and shut up!!!! No one likes a crybaby

  14. ASA. Thank you family. We need to expose the Zionists who are responsible for this misunderstanding.They're hiding behind Judaism. Every believer should go on a campaign to show everyone we know the difference between Judaism and Zionism. The 85% isn't aware of the difference. Look up Rabbi Weiss and other Anti-Zionist Jews. Thanks again for this article.

  15. A guilty conscious needs no accuser.This little brat knew what she did was unacceptable,that's why she tried to rally others to take up for her.What is the social value in her rump shaking in her draws?Our entertainers are exporting stupidity and bad behavior.Keep up the good work,Brother Minister.Who care what the fetal alcohol and fetal crack babies have to say.

  16. When the show first came on ,I was thinking about how my generation(I am 50)used shows and ceremonies as an excuse to dress up in their sharpest suits and gowns.These malt liquor babies and crack babies ,dress like an acid trip or they can't keep their clothes on.And the white folk love it,because it makes them atleast feel a tad better about their own kids' dysfunction and counter productive behavior.Just look at the white girl and boy bands and Singers.Most are clean cut and wholesome looking.(Taylor Swift,Justin Bieber,etc)Now look at the wild and loose "Colored" wrappers and singers.Most are thugs and hoods.Turn on Disney and Nickelodian,if you don' t believe me.
