Some Dublin residents say no to Rihanna's boobs

Apparently Rihanna is too sexy for residents of Dublin, Ireland.

Posters for the singer's "Diamonds" tour are being covered up ahead of her June 21 show at the Aviva Stadium. The images come from Rihanna's "Unapologetic" album cover which features her naked from the waist up, with her elbow and writing acting as a shield for certain body parts.

Twitter users have been posting images of the posters with Rihanna's body draped in dresses and plaid tops.  There is some debate about whether or not folks should be taking part in a cover-up.

Of course there are some who seem to be all for the citizens taking matters into their own hands.

"North King Street, Dublin says a resounding no to Rihanna's boobs," wrote user Charlene Lydon who posted a photo of one of the cover-ups.

And though the censorship has gotten some support, especially in social media, others around town don't see what all the fuss is about. "Someone has stapled a dress to a Rihanna poster on Church St. Well done, you complete nutcase," wrote user, Paul Duane.

Rihanna's team has yet to comment on the posters, and chances are pretty good that the issue won't keep fans away from  what has already been deemed a very successful tour.

What are your thoughts? Is Dublin going too far?

    Oh, no! Not breast!!! If grown up people see the part that feeds babies they turn into made, lustful heathens unable to control any thought or actions!!! Quick, wrap women up in loose linen from head to toe and let our lust overtake us no more. Further, keep them in the house and let strange men never look upon them! Protect! Protect!

      I could agree to the cover up because she's not that attractive.

      To say that it's indecent though? In the Bible Adam and Eve were stark naked. At least until they sinned. To say that being naked is indecent would be saying that God was wrong.

    I've seen TV ads that show as much bosom for hygiene products and even pain killers so I'll be damned if I can see what's so beyond the pale about this poster, seems fairly unremarkable to me.

    But the prudes and nuts can only, and largely ineffectually, harangue the advertising standards board and channels; physical posters in easy reach are another matter entirely. However, I think that they would just deface or use paint to cover them up and not go to such efforts. No this dress stunt looks like an example of Dublin "wit," something along the same vein as the side-slapping humour evident in statue nicknames like the 'Tart with the Cart.'

    In other words, terribly dull.

    It's sad that she has to expose her breasts to sell tickets. That's the misogynistic world we live in though – I just wish pop stars could rebel against it a bit more. Sure you are free to do wqhat you want but do we need to see your boobs and co otch on every poster?
