Joel Embiid tweets he's moving on from Kim Kardashian to Rihanna, asks her out on date

Philadelphia 76ers’ first-round draft pick center Joel Embiid has hands down been the most entertaining celebrity twitter user of the summer. He really took it to another level a few weeks ago when he tweeted his affection for Kim Kardashian, not knowing that she was married to one of the biggest rap stars on the planet in Kanye West.

Well that’s okay now, because he has moved on and now he’s setting his sights on Rihanna.

On Tuesday afternoon, Embiid announced to the entire twitter universe that he has moved on from his Kardashian obsession, and he has now turned his focus to Rihanna.

Just to show everyone that he is serious, he then extended a dinner invitation to the new apple of his eye.


This man with a keyboard in his hands is just the greatest. We don’t know yet how he will fare on the basketball court once he’s fully healthy and ready to go, but if the worst case hits, he has a great future as a social media ambassador for someone.

Now as far as the date with Rihanna goes, well that status is still pending at this time.

But should she respond, for some reason, surely Embiid will tweets that as “BREAKING NEWS”  as well.
