    Rihanna recently attended the Stop Asian Hate march in New York City, and she went in disguise.

    She was with her assistant Tina Truong, with the pair marching with members of the Asian American community and their allies.

    Rihanna looked unrecognisable at the protest, so much so that one protestor didn't believe that it was her, even after RiRi gave them her Instagram handle.

    Tina posted the exchange to her Instagram, showing a protestor asking Rihanna for her Instagram handle, before showing disbelief that it was the popstar herself.

    The protest was organised in response to the spike in hate crimes against Asian Americans. Rihanna has previously posted about the deadly shooting in Georgia that rocked the Asian American community, writing, "what happened yesterday in Atlanta was brutal, tragic, and is certainly not an isolated incident by any means.

    "AAPI hate has been rampantly perpetuated and it’s disgusting! I’m heartbroken for the Asian community and my heart is with the loved ones of those we lost yesterday. The hate must stop. #ProtectAAPILives".
