Rihanna sick at Lisbon gig, tells fans about racist incident
Bajan beauty Rihanna was so ill during her recent performance in Portugal that she ran off-stage mid set to vomit before returning to continue with the show.
The singer is nearing the end of her sizeable Loud tour and several of her gigs have been affected by illness, but she decided not to cancel the event in Lisbon's Atlantico Arena and instead battled through while suffering from nausea. Tweeting to her fans on December 17, she explained:
"I ran off stage to throw up, halfway thru Whats My Name...made it back juuuust in time for RudeBoy."
In addition to this unfortunate incident, Rihanna also found herself having to deal with a severe outburst of racism and took to Twitter a day later (December 18) to publicly out the disgusting act:
"I just met the most racist c*nt EVER!!! This man said the craziest shit abt black women called us dogs, sluts, we don't look like shit, we don't belong in the same hotels....needless to say, the #N*GGA in me came out! Bajan accent and all!Lol!Turns out the hotel manager's black."
