BlackoutTuesday: Rihanna Shuts Fenty Beauty & Savage Fenty
The Bajan superstar has been celebrated in earnest for the Fenty empire she’s building. Yet, as a Black woman first and foremast, she’s taking a stand by putting justice over profits.
A visit to the official sites of Rih’s cosmetics line Fenty Beauty and Savage lingerie range directs to a statement confirming that the stores are closed today in support of #BlackoutTuesday; a day mounted in support of the #BlackLivesMatter movement’s protest of George Floyd‘s death and racial injustice more broadly.
