The American Airlines Center had to be evacuated, which didn't sit well with fans since RiRi was reportedly an hour late going on. Adding to the disappointment, Rihanna's 2010 concert in Dallas was canceled as well, for unspecified reasons. 

Rihanna tweeted about the incident afterward, vowing to return to Dallas in the future.

She is not a good role model for urban youth when she promotes slang gang English. Kids will copy and talk like her and be judged as street thugs from the projects.

RIRI AS SOME PEEPS CALL HER (I FOR ONE THINK IT IS SUCH A BABYISH TERM) NEEDS TO GROW UP AND REMEMBER WHO MADE HER WHAT SHE IS TODAY. FYAH SHE WAS REFERRING TO THE FIRE THAT HAPPENED, SHE IS SUCH A DITZ. SHE DEFINETLY HAS BECOME TOO BIG FOR HER BRITCHES, IT'S ALL ABOUT THE $$$$$ NOW. WHEN SHE FIRST STARTED OUT SHE WAS SO "GRATEFUL" TO ALL HER FANS FOR BUYING HER ALBUMS. MY MY MY HOW THINGS CHANGE, RIGHT YA'LL? I'M NO SAINT, BUT SHE NEEDS TO COUNT HER BLESSINGS INSTEAD OF THE $$$$$$$$$$.

I was there in the floor seats and it actually got really scary for a few minutes. She was awesome when she was on, but she was an hour late with no apology... then fire. Please refund our money!
You rock RiRi! Make sure your people do the right thing & refund!

Isn't an apology (and a refund) more into place instead of tweeting a joke? That could've been beyond belief.
