Rihanna Used the Lion King to Congratulate Kevin Durant on Beating LeBron James in the NBA Finals

RiRi gets the last laugh.

The NBA Finals came to an end last night after only five games, and it’s Kevin Durant and the Golden State Warriors who came out victorious. Even though LeBron James didn’t get his fourth championship ring, he still ended up with a W. After the game, his #1 fan, Rihanna, took to Instagram to pay homage to the Cavs captain with a dramatic spoof of an iconic scene from the Lion King, but in this reenactment RiRi stars as Simba, LeBron as Mufasa, and Durant as Scar.

She captioned the video, “#LongLiveTheKing #KingisStillKingBitch,” and even gave a surprise shout out to KD even though they were beefing during Game 1, “(whispers congrats to KD, cause….ROCNation) BUT: me and @mdollas11 beefing all summer!!”
If that wasn’t enough, she also utilized the “crying Jordan face” meme to its full potential.
