The song, featuring Charli XCX, Bebe Rexha and Cardi B has been shunned by fans for its lyrics: "Red wine, I just wanna kiss girls, girls, girls" and "I ain’t one-sided, I’m open-minded, I’m fifty-fifty and I’m never gonna hide it."
Stars like Kehlani and Hayley Kiyoko have come out and called the song "harmful", which urged Rita to issue an apology where she explains that the song is of a personal experience, and that she's had relationships with both men and women.
However now, her ex-boyfriend Rob Kardashian has come to her defence.
Rob has retweeted her apology/coming out letter, along with six praising-hand emojis.
Fans were really loving the exchange.
Rob isn't the only one who has defends Rita. Cardi B has also spoken out about the song.
"Listen to “GIRLS” by Rita Ora ft me @BebeRexha @charli_xcx .We never try to cause harm or had bad intentions with the song .I personally myself had experiences with other woman ,shiieeett with a lot of woman ! I though the song was a good song and i remember my experience ."
"I know i have use words before that i wasn’t aware that they are offensive to the LGBT community .I apologize for that .Not everybody knows the correct “terms “to use.I learned and i stopped using it," she continued.
She also responded to a fan, who recounted her own experience with dealing with people calling her a 'dyke'.
"Exactly me too .My own friends be like “ I’m a dyke so i never thought it was a offensive word .I was like wtf "
