Olivia Wilde clears the air after being accused of thirsting over A$AP Rocky during Rihanna's Super Bowl performance: 'It's hot to respect your partner'
Olivia Wilde's post calling A$AP Rocky "hot" drew backlash from social media users.
The director shared a clip of the rapper filming Rihanna's Super Bowl performance on Instagram.
"For anyone who got it twisted, it's hot to respect your partner," she clarified in a second post.
Olivia Wilde has cleared the air after her post about A$AP Rocky watching his longtime partner Rihanna perform the halftime show at the Super Bowl was interpreted the wrong way.
The "Don't Worry Darling" director shared to Instagram Stories on Monday a video, originally posted by Rolling Stone, which showed the rapper proudly filming his pop star girlfriend's 13-minute set, which included a medley of hits such as "We Found Love," "Rude Boy," and "Diamonds."
Over the top of the clip, she tagged both Rocky and Rihanna and wrote: "If I thought he was hot before, this really put me over the edge."
However, Wilde deleted the post after it was screenshotted and shared on Twitter, where users accused her of being "thirsty for other people's men," as one wrote.
Sharing the same clip again just a few hours later, Wilde clarified that her original post wasn't meant to be disrespectful to the couple. Instead, she was trying to convey that she found it "hot" that Rocky was being so supportive during his girlfriend's big night.
"For anyone who got it twisted 🙄… it's hot to respect your partner," she wrote. "Especially when your partner just did thaaaaaat."
The halftime show marked the first time that Rihanna has performed in front of a live audience in five years as her last time on stage was in 2018 at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards in New York City.
During her performance, Rihanna revealed that she and Rocky — who have been romantically linked since 2020 but close friends and collaborators for over a decade — are expecting their second child together. A representative for the singer confirmed the news to The Hollywood Reporter,
Rihanna gave birth to the couple's first child, a baby boy, in May 2022, although have chosen not to publicly share his name.
Meanwhile, Wilde split from boyfriend Harry Styles in late 2022, following an almost two-year romance that reportedly began on the set of "Don't Worry Darling" in January 2021, not long after she had broken up with ex-fiancé Jason Sudeikis, with whom she shares children Otis, 8, and Daisy, 6.
