France-Wakanda Relations

France is angry with the depiction of French soldiers in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. On Twitter, Defense Minister Sebastien Lecornu condemned a photograph depicting arrested soldiers with their wrists bound behind their backs.

The soldiers appeared to be equipped similarly to French troops deployed to the Sahel region of Africa to combat terrorist groups. “I am remembering and honoring the 58 French soldiers who died defending Mali against Islamist terrorist groups at its request,” he added. He continued by stating that the military was being misrepresented.

RiRi’s Comeback?

Fans who expected this concert to mark the beginning of a new Rihanna era should brace themselves. In an interview about the big performance, she disclosed that a new album “would certainly take some time” but that she was open to releasing songs sporadically.
