Rihanna's tweet has been reported by the BBC and is said by them to have angered Modi's government. She's tweeting in support of farmers protests against new pro-corporate farming laws. These protests have swept all over India. There have been violent clashes and some protestors have occupied the red fort and they have camped just outside Delhi's borders. The government has suspended internet service in three regions of Delhi. I think Rihanna's intentions are pretty clear: she supports their protest. Good for her.
In fact, the farmers protests have been ongoing since early December last year and coincided with a call for a general strike. An estimated 250 million people have been out on the streets protesting with images of tractors breaking down police barricades and one protestor has said on live national tv to a reporter, "this is a revolution, sir".
