Rihanna, 31, shared a startling message about the ongoing massacre currently happening in Sudan.

"They're shooting people's houses, raping women, burning bodies, throwing them in the Nile like vermin, tormenting people, urinating on them, making them drink sewage water, terrorizing the streets, and stopping Muslims from going to eid prayer," Rihanna asserted on her Instagram story on Tuesday, June 11, captured by The Shade Room.
