Seeing as how it was a makeup show, you’d think Rihanna would do all she could to win back her fans. You know, the little things…like showing up on time, or at the very least being accountable for her delay.
Not the case.
Rihanna finally made it onstage 3 hours later than her scheduled time, and the TD Garden crowd let her know it. She was welcomed with a bevy of boos by the angry concertgoers.
She tried making up for it by offering up this goodwill tweet after the show:

However, I’m not so sure it worked. Here are some angry tweets aimed at RiRi for not only her lateness, but her lackluster performance as well:
This is the punishment you get for actually listening to Rihanna's music—

I love Rihanna's song "Where have you been" but she's not exactly the person to be asking that question #WhereHaveYOUbeen—

There's only a certain amount of "cockiness" and "arrogance" people can take. Rihanna went overboard with this one—

I'm literally so pissed off I've lost respect for Rihanna—

1/3 the people left before @rihanna came on stage. I like your music but you really proved who you are 2nite since this is a "make up show"—

Apparently @rihanna thinks its appropriate to be 2 HOURS LATE to a show? Diva much? Get out of Boston.—

This concert absolutely sucks, Rihanna some people gotta work in the AM so either start this show or I'm outta here...—

I see why @rihanna made that "Boston I will never forget" post.. Trying to suck up to the people of Boston after a shitty & late performance—

But for every 10 angry tweets, you do find 1 like this:
tried to be as mad at you as I could @rihanna but you're just too beautiful to have haters—
