Rihanna has condemned Donald Trump’s response to the deadly shootings that rocked the US over the weekend.

At least nine people were killed after a gunman opened fire in Ohio, mere hours after a mass shooting at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas that killed at least 20 people, by a suspected white supremacist.

Trump condemned the shootings, he tweeted, "God bless the people of El Paso, Texas. God bless the people of Dayton, Ohio."

Rihanna confronted the president on Instagram and Twitter, calling the shooters terrorists before launching into a tirade about the ease with which Americans can purchase guns.

“Um…Donald, you spelt ‘terrorism’ wrong!” she began. “Your country had 2 terrorist attacks back to back hours apart leaving almost 30 innocent people dead.”

This, just days after yet another terrorist attack in California, where a terrorist was able to LEGALLY purchase an assault rifle (AK-47) in Vegas, then drive hours to a food festival in Cali leaving 6 more people dead including a young infant baby boy!

Imagine a world where it’s easier to get an AK-47 than a VISA!

Imagine a world where they build a wall to keep terrorists IN AMERICA!!! My prayers and deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of all the victims from Texas, California, and Ohio! I’m so sorry for your loss! Nobody deserves to die like this! NOBODY!

She posted her comments on Twitter and Instagram, and her sentiments were shared by many people online.

The singer’s post was retweeted almost 130k times and received over a quarter of a million likes.
