If there's one thing we've learned about following Rihanna on social media (and listening to her music, and seeing her perform, and...), it's that the girl gives zero fucks.

How would you like it if people were constantly all in your Twitter mentions insulting you? Well, you either ignore it, or you address it. And when Rihanna addresses it, it's usually absolutely hilarious. Today, a Knicks fan on Instagram came at Rihanna for partying with J.R. Smith after a Knicks win in Game 2 of the series. Rihanna went off calling Smith a "desert thirsty n****" and calling the Knicks a "wack ass team." Ha! And you thought Kevin Garnett was the Knicks' biggest shit talking foe!

This reminded us of a number of other times Rihanna ethered people via social media. Here are Rihanna's 10 Best Social Media Slanders.

J.R. Smith Diss

Victim: J.R. Smith

Date: May 16, 2013

Rihanna's been spotted with the Knicks' J.R. Smith out on the town post-playoff games. When a fan tried to blame her for his performance since their night out, she responded via Instagram. She didn't come for the fan so much as she ethered Smith, calling him a "desert thirsty n****." Desert thirsty? That's a new level of thirst.

Chris Brown Insult

Victim: Chris Brown

Date: May 11, 2013

Looks like a nice nightcap for Rihanna right? Wrong. A martini shot turned into pure slander towards her now-ex-but-on-and-off-again-boyfriend, the infamous, Chris Brown. The caption? "Got a thang for a King, but chu ain't a King!!!"

Piers Morgan Insult

@piersmorgan: ps I think @Rihanna needs to grow her hair back. Fast.” grow a dick..... FAST!!!!

— Rihanna (@rihanna) September 9, 2012

Hair advice from Piers Morgan? Annoying but definitely not as irritating as him @-ing her when he insulted her. Then again, Rihanna shot back so hard that Piers hopefully never gives anyone—male or female—hair advice again.

Joan Rivers Insult

Victim: Joan Rivers

Date: August 24, 2012

Rihanna confessed to Oprah Winfrey that she still loves Chris Brown. Idiot! Now it's MY turn to slap her.

— Joan Rivers (@Joan_Rivers) August 24, 2012

Slap on some diapers

— Rihanna (@rihanna) August 24, 2012

Ouch. After Rihanna's Oprah Winfrey special where she talked about her relationship with Chris Brown, Joan Rivers made a typically Joan Rivers joke. Rihanna tweeted back: "@Joan_Rivers wow u really do get slow when you're old huh?" It was quickly deleted and she subtweeted about how Joan Rivers is so old she needs a diaper. Not Rih's best, but certainly up there.

The Sun Newspaper Insult

Victim: The Sun

Date: June 7, 2012

The Sun Newspaper is like a fuckin ass hair, full of shit!!!!!!

— Rihanna (@rihanna) June 7, 2012

The Sun newspaper  claimed Rihanna used a body double in one of her Armani advertisements and Rihanna took to Twitter to refute the claim. How? In true Rihanna form—what a great simile.

Celebuzz Insult

Victim: Celebuzz

Dear Rihanna, you've gone a little too far with this 'outfit' http://t.co/zSKETVkk May be time to class it up and put some clothes on?

— CELEBUZZ (@CELEBUZZ) May 18, 2012

@CELEBUZZ your pussy is way too dry to be riding my dick like this

— Rihanna (@rihanna) May 18, 2012

Celebuzz giving Rihanna advice on how to be classy is unfair; we get she's always showing side-boob, under-boob, a lot of boob, but will they ever tweet like this at her again? She did call them dickrickers after all.

Fan Insult 2

Victim: Fan

@JuhReeV neither is your avi #clapback

— Rihanna (@rihanna) February 25, 2012

#clapback became a trending topic because Rihanna snapped back at a Twitter fan. Here's a rule: if you're insulting someone, it may not be the best idea to @ them, right?

Fan Insult

Victim: (Beyonce) Fan

Date: June 12, 2011

RT @BeyFierceIV: Wow, As i look through @Rihanna's TL. I realise how unclassy she actually is. I see alot of ... http://tmi.me/bufqe

— Ron (@RonPipes) June 12, 2011

@BeyFierceIV FUCK u CUNT!!!! #unclassyNavy

— Rihanna (@rihanna) June 12, 2011

"Cunts & Fuck" sounds like a new chain/strip club/hole-in-the-wall bar. The user, who eventually changed her Twitter handle, is an avid Beyoncé fan—Bey. Fierce. IV. Rihanna snapped back at the first using both of those "unclassy words" and shouted out to the #navy.

Ciara Insult

Not Available Interstitial

Victim: Ciara

Date: February 26, 2011

The ongoing feud between Ciara and Rihanna started back in 2011 when CiCi hopped on E!'s Fashion Police with Joan Rivers. "I ran into [Rihanna] recently at a party. She wasn't the nicest," Ciara told Rivers. "It's crazy, because I've always loved and respected what she's done in fashion. It wasn't the most pleasant run-in." It turned into a back and forth with Rihanna insinuating she should have tipped Ciara. Which spawned this:

Trust me Rhianna u dont want to see me on or off the stage

— Ciara (@ciara) February 26, 2011

Good luck with bookin that stage u speak of

— Rihanna (@rihanna) February 26, 2011
