Minister Louis Farrakhan is clarifying a statement he made about pop singer Rihanna.
As previously reported, news hit the net that the Nation of Islam leader called her performances “filth” and criticized her fans for being “swine.”
The singer heard of the diss herself and took to her Twitter page to say,
Since then a rep for Farakhan has released a full transcript of the speech to AllHipHop to prove that it was taken out of context.
According to a Farakhan rep, the Minster said,
“I saw my beautiful sister the other night at the Grammy awards. Rihanna. My poor sister, she’s dressed almost like -with a pair of draws. And she got her legs wide open and just grinding away,”
The full transcript is below.
“…When the Mahdi (Reformer) comes, he kills the swine. It doesn’t mean he just goes around killing pigs, but the demon in you is akin to the behavior of a swine. Now listen. Just see if it fits. Try it on. If it don’t fit, it aint you (colloquial language for humor).
Swine love filth. How about you?”

“Ahhh, look at Rihanna, Go on, girl”
If that didn’t revolt you, you’re beginning to be a swine. When you can sit down and listen to somebody and every 3rd word is you “m-f” this. And they start talking about the act that is done in private and they bring it out in the public and make (it) so low down and filthy ; and you’re sitting there laughing at a filthy damn joke and then the next day you go to church and sing in the choir, you’re a swine.. Swine love filth. How about you?”
There were also reports that the Minister called homosexuals swine as well.
