    Attention, Instagram users: Say goodbye to @badgalriri.

    That's right, Rihanna has deleted her Instagram account after her profile page was briefly disabled on the photosharing site and has now taken to Twitter to slam an imposter who is currently posing as the singer on social media.

    "#PHAKE!!!! Let's be clear, I do NOT have an IG account," the 26-year-old singer captioned a photo of the phony account, which currently has over 250 followers.

    Earlier this month, RiRi's IG came into question after the singer posted a series of very racy photos. Shortly after she uploaded the skintastic shots, her profile was rendered inactive, causing many to believe she was reprimanded for sharing the NSFW pics.

    However, when E! News asked if the Barbadian beauty was banned by the social media organization due to her endless nudie pics, the company told us, "This account was mistakenly caught in one of our automated systems and very briefly disabled. We apologize for any inconvenience."

    On the flip side, we have a feeling RiRi's feeling unapologetic about her decision to ditch IG.

    While the "Pour It Up" singer was never banned from Instagram, she did find herself on the receiving end of criticism after she shared several snapshots from her topless photoshoot for Lui magazine.

    RiRi responded to the backlash by posting a doctored photo of herself dressed in extremely conservative attire, which she captioned, "Rih's next magazine cover if it was up to Instagram."

    Hey, at least we still have Twitter!
