Teen Who Accused Rihanna of Cyber-Bullying Recalls Hurt Feelings: “I Threw All Her CDs in the Trash”
Alexis Carter, the 16-year-old from Baltimore who wore an outfit to prom inspired by RiRi’s Alexandre Vauthier jumpsuit and was ultimately bashed publicly by the singer, tells E! News she’s hurt by Rihanna’s two alleged posts on Twitter. “I was astonished that she would do something like that. She’s a grown woman and she bashed me. I thought she would praise it,” Carter said. “For someone who claims to love her fans, this sure doesn’t show it.”
A family friend created the ensemble, which featured a plunging neckline and “wing-like” attachments under the arms. The next day, however, photos of her outfit began to circulate on social media. On Twitter, #PromBat trended, complete with altered photographs that mocked her jumpsuit.
“I picked that outfit because my idol had worn it. I loved her,” Alexis said, but since Rihanna’s tweets mimicking Carter’s outfit hit the web, she’s taken steps to remove the Unapologetic singer from her life.
“I threw all her CDs in the trash,” Carter said. Although meeting Rihanna to right the situation would be nice, what Alexis really wants is an apology. “It’s not really about meeting her. It’s about apologizing because she desecrated my name. Now everyone is bashing me,” Carter said.
Rihanna, meanwhile, has yet to comment on the controversy via social media. E! News has reached out to her rep.
