I was delighted when a snap of me and Rihanna went viral

A WOMAN revealed how she met Rihanna as a child — only for it to become a meme.

After that, things got even weirder for Sammi Smith, now 21, as the public lashed out at the international star, who is currently pregnant with her first child, for allegedly making her FAT-SHAMING.

Sammi, 21, from the United States, met Rihanna after a concert in Madison Square Gardens, New York when she was winning a competition.

She visited with her mother and bought rihanna her favorite candy bar, a Snickers.

Rihanna posed with Sammi, held the bar and that should have been it.

Until years later, when Sammi was in high school, she suddenly got a lot of messages.

It was because a viral meme account picked up the image and quoted (as a slightly cruel joke), “I met Rihanna and she took my snickers and said, ‘You don’t need that fat.'”

Unfortunately, many people believed that Rihanna actually physically shamed Sammi.

They commented on this on Sammi’s social media accounts.

“I can’t believe she did that,” one person said.

“Be sure to throw away her poster.”

Sammi remembered the incident with her YouTube video Channel.

“I smiled but inside I was screaming,” Sammi said upon learning the meme had been made.

And she was keen to make it clear that Rihanna didn’t shame her.

“It’s funny, but it’s not true. That seems obvious to me, but a lot of people still ask me if it is.”

She said: “It was my freshman year of high school and it was the night before the first day of finals [exams].”

“I was trying to study, and I put my phone down, and I was having so much trouble concentrating.” I could hear my phone buzzing and buzzing and buzzing [I thought] I’m not as popular as people don’t text me and text me and call me all the time.”

So I decided to take two seconds to check my phone and make sure everyone is alive.

“I opened it up to all these texts and people tagged me in stuff and I had no idea what was going on.

“I went on Instagram to find out that the picture I took with Rihanna was made into a meme.

“I hadn’t seen that pic since I met her because I was young and didn’t have Instagram or social media.” I think I had printed it out and taken it to school to show my friends, but I did didn’t have no phone or computer.

“I kind of forgot the picture existed.”
