All this Rihanna fan was trying to do was recreate the singer’s look (on a budget,) and wear her creation to her prom.. But rather than support her fan’s efforts, Rihanna callously retweeted the girl’s dress with a “sad face” emoticon and then again with another disparaging comment, comparing the dress to a bat.

That fan, Alexis Carter, 16, is now speaking out, saying the singer “cyberbullied her” on her big night.
“I was very offended,” Carter said in an interview with Baltimore’s Fox affiliate about Rihanna’s tweets. “Why throw shade on it when you had on the exact same thing? The poses was different but the outfit wasn’t. … She don’t love her fans like she says she does.” source
Carter says she was inspired by a unique jumpsuit the singer wore in 2010 and decided to get crafty and make her own version for her recent prom. Carter claims the copycat romper was a hit at school – but not so much on the Interwebs.
Rihanna has yet to tweet an apology..
