Rita, born in Pristina, Yugoslavia in 1990 with both Albanian parents, now sees her name filling in countless tweets – mostly, in a way, expressing surprise that the star is not black. Rita is now being accused of “black” – a term used for non-black individuals accused of claiming to be black.
As the hours passed, however, the answers went the other way.
“Getting second-hand embarrassment from thinking rita ora black,” one user wrote. However, others referred to their comments as references to black culture.
