Rihanna brands Trump the 'most mentally ill person in America'
Singer's comments were made in reference to president's response to mass shootings in Texas and Ohio
Voguemagazine, the singer picked up on the theme she raised this summer. “It is devastating. People are being murdered by war weapons that they legally purchase. This is just not normal. That should never, ever be normal,”saidthe Grammy winner.“And the fact that it’s classified as something different because of the colour of their skin? It’s a slap in the face. It’s completely racist.”
She added: “Put an Arab man with that same weapon in that same Walmart and there is no way that Trump would sit there and address it publicly as a mental health problem. The most mentally ill human being in America right now seems to be the president.”
It is possible the singer’s comments will themselves spark outcry. Both gun control and mental health advocates have pointed out that while politicians often blame mental health for mass shootings, there is little evidence that mentally ill people are responsible for such acts. Some may feel she was similarly wrong to parcel mentally ill people together with the president.
BetoO’Rourkecondemns Donald Trump’s rhetoric in wake of El Paso shooting“President Trump again failed America by pushing dangerous and long-disproven narratives about the roots of gun violence, parroting NRA talking points, rather than citing the common-sense and evidence-based solutions we know will bring an end to gun violence,” Kris Brown, president of the gun control group Brady, said after Mr Trump’s comments in August.
“It’s clear the president dangerously misrepresents a relationship between mental health and gun violence. Mental illness is not predictive of violence. In fact, studies prove the opposite is true: those living with mental illnesses are more likely to be victims rather than perpetrators of violence.”
Asked during the interview what advice she may have for immigrants to the country, Rihanna, who is originally from Barbados, said: “What do you say? What can you say? It’s gonna get better? I almost feel sick to my stomach. I don’t even believe this is happening in real life.
“In front of my eyes. In front of the world. It’s not even hidden. This is blatant.” Read more: The Independent »
