Pop superstar Rihanna has sparked fury by comparing photographers in New Zealand to Nazi soldiers for taking snaps of her.
The Umbrella hitmaker was pictured earlier this week (begs07Oct13) near the window of her hotel room in Auckland with just a towel to preserve her modesty.
She later shared the same image on her Instagram.com page on Tuesday (08Oct13), alongside the message, "I hate these n**gaz more than the Nazi (sic)."
However fans of the star hit back at the controversial comment - one follower writes, "You hate some people who snap a few photos more than people who killed six million," and another adds, "When you're standing in the window in the view of people, don't blame paparazzi for doing their job. Quit being a brat."
