INDIANA: Rihanna Slams RFRA Battle To NCAA Concert Crowd, "Fuck That Shit"
Rihanna also used her headlining performance to slam Indiana’s controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA). Although the bill was amended to make it less discriminatory toward the LGBT community, Rihanna still unloaded on the RFRA in an expletive-laden tirade prior to performing “Live Your Life.” "Who’s feeling these new bullshit laws that they’re trying to pass over here? I say fuck that shit," Rihanna told the crowd, inciting chants of "Fuck that shit." "We’re just living our motherfucking lives. Indiana!" Although Rihanna’s March Madness performance was live-streamed, her Indiana comments were heavily censored upon broadcast.Also slamming RFRA at the concert was Bleachers frontman Jack Antonoff, who wore a "Protect LGBT Hoosiers" t-shirt and called for donations to Freedom Indiana. Bleachers is a spin-off project of Antonoff's band Fun, which took the Grammy for Best New Artist in 2013. Fun also won the 2013 Grammy for Song Of The Year with We Are Young.
