(Scroll down for video) Music fans are angry after Rihanna tweeted #FreePalestine on her Twitter page.

Rihanna just inserted herself into the center of the Middle East conflict by tweeting #FreePalestine, but she deleted the tweet after eight minutes.

It is unclear why Rihanna had the change of heart. The tweet was posted shortly after the ceasefire proposal of Egypt collapsed because Hamas continued to fire rockets at Israel.

The tweet of Rihanna, comes just three days after NBA star Dwight Howard, tweeted #FreePalestine. Just like Rihanna, Howard deleted the message.

Howard later apologized for engaging in international politics. However, Rihanna did not apologize. Rihanna did tweet: “Let’s pray for peace and a swift end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict! Is there any hope?”
