American pop singer and actress, Rihanna has called out the President of United States, Donald Trump, over recent shootings in the country which left at least 20 people dead over the weekend.
A mass shooting was reported at a Walmart store in El Paso which left no fewer than 20 people dead on Saturday, August 3.
A gunman, who wore a mask, bulletproof vest and hearing protection, also struck at a popular nightlife district in downtown Dayton on Sunday, August 4. The Dayton attack left over 9 people dead, CNN reports.
The suspect, who sources reportedly identified as Patrick Crusius of Allen, Texas, has been charged with capital murder and is being held without bond, El Paso Police Sgt. Robert Gomez said.
Reacting to the shootings, Rihanna sympathised with families of victims and countered Trump on his fight against terrorist attack.
On her Instagram page, Rihanna wrote: “Donald, you spelt “terrorism” wrong! Your country had two 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 and the communities affected and traumatized, from Texas, California, and Ohio! I’m so sorry for your loss! Nobody deserves to die like this! NOBODY!”
