Non Hip-Hop Rumors: Were Rihanna’s Recent “Rice Cake” Tweets Racist?

A few days ago Rihanna tweeted a package of rice cakes wearing sunglasses and gold hoop earrings with the caption “Ima make u my b*tch.”

A few hours later, The International Business Tribune published an article titled “Is Rihanna Making Racist ‘Rice Cakes’ Jokes About Chris Brown Girlfriend Karrueche Tran?”, because “rice cake” is a common epithet for those of Vietnamese descent.

Rihanna also says the lyric “I’m sweeter than a rice cake” in her new remix for “Birthday Cake” featuring Chris Brown. We have never read or heard that slur before, and I hope its just a coincidence. If not, we find the whole thing offensive and distasteful.

Do you think Rihanna knew it was a slur or is it just a coincidence?
