Rihanna hasn’t backed off after facing backlash for superimposing Queen Elizabeth II’s head over her racy ensembles over the weekend — instead the pop star has doubled down, sharing another similar photo on her Instagram Monday.

The latest image sees Rihanna‘s face in a Dior ad replaced with that of the British monarch.

The cheeky captions reads: “haters will say it’s photoshop.”

On Sunday, Rihanna sent her 52.5 million Instagram followers into a tizzy after posting four photos that saw the Queen’s face plastered onto the singer’s 29-year-old body. Rihanna presumably shared the images to honor the royal’s 91st birthday, which took place on April 21, although she has yet to officially reveal the reason.

Many of Rihanna‘s fans found humor in the audacious posts, but she’s also been criticized by a fair amount of detractors.



“Its rude you know. This is not funny. She’s someone’s grandma. Imagine if its yours,” one user wrote in the Instagram comments section. Another added, “Rihanna is craving attention I suppose. The queen is 91 and deserves respect.”

On her latest upload, one Instagram commentator wrote: “She’s still at it with this non-funny bulls—.”

The controversy comes less than six months after the singer met with Prince Harry in Barbados to celebrate 50 years of independence for the island nation.
