Rihanna came under fire by Korean netizens for being 2.5 hours late to her promotional event in Seoul for her beauty line FENTY BEAUTY.
Many audience who paid to attend her showcase and media press had left when no updates were given about her situation even after waiting for hours. Rihanna was finally able to arrive at the event hall about 2.5 hours later than scheduled.
When she got up on stage, she personally apologized for her tardiness and explained that it was due to heavy traffic.
I was late because of a traffic jam. I’m very sorry.
She then went on with her showcase as planned as she demonstrated her beauty line products and answered questions from fans.
