Rihanna continues to ruffle feathers with her social networks after she sent out (and quickly deleted) a pro-Palestine message on her Twitter account today (July 15).

The tweet, which was simply #FreePalestine, was taken down just minutes after it was posted this morning.

According to a source close to the pop star (via TMZ), the quick deletion occurred because “it was never meant to be sent out in the first place.”

The source went on to explain that Rihanna is “pro-peace” and that “she doesn’t want innocent people dying.”
