Someone call a Park Ranger — a Grizzly has been mauled! Rihanna left claw marks all over Memphis forward Matt Barnes when she made it painfully clear Sunday that the pair, well, are not a pair.
Asked if there was a “future” for the two, Barnes replied, “Yeah, possibly. … I think it passed the crush stage a little bit. Just a little bit, though.”
That apparently was “a little bit” more than Rihanna wanted the rumor mill to spin with, so she took to Instagram to set the record straight. Posting a screen shot of Barnes’s interview with TMZ, the pop star took the NBA player down several pegs, one brutal hashtag at a time:
“#bishwhere #thedevilisaliar #shesnotthatintoyou #shesnotintoyouatall #shesneverevenmetyou #thisactuallyhurtmyfeelings #defamationofcharacter”
Bro, I think maybe she’s not that into you. Ouch! Fortunately for Barnes, Rihanna only has 24.5 million Instagram followers, so, you know, that still leaves a bunch more people who didn’t see him get absolutely destroyed by one of the world’s foremost celebrities.
Of course, many did did see it, and reacted accordingly:

b/c rihanna put her stiletto nails inside of his rib cage and squeezed at his lungs from the inside.
This is hardly the first time Barnes’s mouthiness has backfired on him, but it has to be the most embarrassing.
