Rihanna can’t wink—or is that what the lizard people want us to think?

A viral Twitter thread has turned Rihanna fans into GIF-scrutinizing detectives. It suggests that Rihanna, a living goddess who is capable of swerving on Drake himself, is incapable of winking.

That’s right. She can’t shut just one eye. She has to shut both.

We have to admit, @NotAgainBen presents pretty compelling evidence.

He argues that even when it looks like Riri is winking, she’s actually blinking.

Her “method” is meant to cover her inability to wink.

But @NotAgainBen is onto her.

And he’s not letting this go. 

Even if Rihanna seems to give zero fucks.

Because @NotAgainBen cares. He cares a lot.

He swears the critique is coming from a place of love.

And he won’t stand for you telling him he’s wrong.

But is he wrong, though?

Some have argued that there’s a simple explanation for all of this.

But surely there’s more to the story.

We already know Rihanna hangs out with Tupac’s ghost.

And she’s a self-proclaimed “illuminati princess.”

And, dear lord, she listens to heavy metal?!?!

You know those blinks have got to mean something—but what? Break the silence Rih! Tell us!

Stop looking at us like that.

We know there’s a conspiracy here!

OK, she’s a robot. That’s gotta be it. 

It all adds up.
