Rihanna fans are outraged by Depp’s participation in the Fenty show.

“Rihanna is a billionaire, so that’s the first strike. One minute he’s not performing at the Super Bowl with Colin Kaepernick and the next minute he’s announcing that he is and for some reason invited Johnny Depp to be a part of his show. Where are the morals?” author Najma Sharif wrote on Twitter.

Another person added: “Rihanna inviting Johnny Depp to her show is so, so weird. There isn’t a single billionaire on the planet who has manners and she’s carrying on that trend sadly.”
