Lupita Nyong'o and Rihanna Tweets April 2017

Twitter Is Loving This Imaginary Scam Involving Lupita Nyong'o and Rihanna

Three years ago at Miu Miu's 2014 Paris Fashion Week show, greatness was born. Yes, the parade of pastels that hit the runway was to die for, but I'm not talking about the clothes; I'm talking about the two icons sitting in the front row: Rihanna and Lupita Nyong'o. At the time, photos of the two sandwiched between Margot Robbie and Elizabeth Olsen immediately inspired everyone to imagine all of the kinds of #goals a friendship between the two would inspire (hint: MANY). Luckily Twitter user blaquepink recently resurfaced the image with the caption "A picture for the history books," and people found themselves obsessing over Lupita and Rihanna (Lupanna? Rihita?) all over again.

Of all the reactions to the photo, the best was @1800SADGAL's, who made the observation that "Rihanna looks like she scams rich white men and Lupita is the computer smart best friend that helps plan the scans," which is a plan I can totally and 100 percent get behind. Apparently so can Lupita, who also noticed the tweet and made Twitter's dreams come true with one of her own:

Naturally her followers freaked the f*ck out over the possibility of a Joanne the Scammer-level plot involving the two. With all of her experience in the "B*tch Better Have My Money" music video and in the upcoming Ocean's 8 movie, Rihanna already has plenty of scamming experience under her belt, right? Until she responds, check out all of the GIF reactions and fan art (Are you there, God? It's me, Quinn. Please make a graphic novel about Lupita and Rihanna's scams a reality. Thanks.) that were inspired by the Queen of Katwe actress's tweet:
