The Right Here Waiting singer referenced the rapper in a thinly veiled tweet, stating:
‘Risque’ clothing banned at Grammys but guys who beat up women? Come ooonnn downnnnn…..#goodcallgrammys.’
In a followup tweet, the soft rock crooner clarified: “Technically that tweet was about ANY d**kbag who hits women.”
Richard was referring to CBS’s announcement on Wednesday that attendees of Sunday’s 55th annual Grammy Awards cover up for the event.
The network, which is airing the awards show, said in a statement: ‘Please be sure that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered…Please avoid exposing bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack.’
CBS went on, ‘Please be sure the genital region is adequately covered so that there is no visible “puffy” bare skin exposure.’
