Riri’s Pokéban

Rihanna bans audience from texting and playing 'Pokémon Go' at her concert.

Rihanna is not a fan of Pokémon Go and has banned the little monsters from her concerts.

The 28-year-old star performed at the Grand Stade in Lille, France, on Saturday night and warned the crowd to not use their phones for texting loved ones or playing the game.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, she told the audience: “I don’t want to see you texting your boyfriends or your girlfriends. I don’t want to see you catching any Pokémons up in this b!tch.”

And Rihanna’s not the only celebrity not impressed with the new craze.

Director Oliver Stone thinks the game is a prime example of the new invasive levels taken by greedy corporations interested in getting the public’s data.

Speaking at the San Diego Comic-Con, he said: “It’s what some people call surveillance capitalism.”
