Rihanna Announced As Cybersmiler Of The Month For April

It’s very encouraging to see such positive online behaviour being demonstrated by such an influential celebrity, more of this please everyone!

After Wentworth Miller winning the March crown with his incredible demonstration of how to deal with negativity online, we needed something a bit special for April – and this is just that!

It turns out mega star Rihanna has been operating on a ridiculously angelic level and we felt it needed highlighting! The star has been personally helping one of her Twitter followers who has had trouble coming to terms with his sexuality. The fan felt he had no one to talk to about his feelings and reached out to Rihanna on Twitter – What Rihanna did next has made her an easy choice for April’s Cybersmiler of the month award!

“Baby it’s ok to be scared, but it’s more important to be who you are! You don’t have a choice really! That’s not a decision to be made! You are who you are, and as hard as it may seem, the best s*** ever is freedom and peace within yourself! Your family may not understand, but luckily you live in a generation that does!! And not to mention the community here amongst us, we will hold you down boo!!!”

Rihanna, Cybersmiler of the Month, April

┬áThe thing is, thats not all! On top of personally replying and helping the fan, Rihanna continued talking to him all the way through his coming out process, including helping him with his personal issues and advising him on how to tell his close friends, relatives and how to deal with any haters while he’s at it! To put the icing on the cake, Rihanna has invited the fan to visit her and spend some time together during her ANTI world tour in July. If that isn’t using the internet for positive purpose then we don’t know what is!
