The Rihanna Navy and the Beyhive have been on not-so-friendly terms on social media following the announcement of the 2017 Grammy Awards nominations.

Although RiRi expressed gratitude for her whopping eight nods, the Navy felt that she was snubbed after Anti didn’t receive a nom for Album of the Year over Beyoncé’s Lemonade. Naturally, Bey’s fans wasted no time in coming to the defence of their Queen.

But Rihanna quickly cleared things up on the ‘gram, commenting on a fan’s photo, “I’m petty af, yes. But this is just unnecessary! I wish y’all would drop this topic and see things from the bigger picture! We don’t need to be putting black women against each other! We deserve to be celebrated and the Grammy Academy agrees!”

So true, Rih.
