Rihanna has expressed her distaste for an Auckland photographer's shot of her, by saying she hated paparazzi more than Nazis.

The 25-year-old pop star, in Auckland for her Diamonds World Tour, was snapped by Kiwi photographer Simon Runting standing in the window of her hotel room, wrapped in a blanket.

She captioned the picture "I hate these ni***z more than the Nazi," quoting lyrics about the paparazzi from Kanye West song Flashing Lights.

One angry twitter user told Rihanna to take a history lesson, and Auckland paparazzi were "nothing like Nazis".

Another wrote: "Seriously Rihanna? someone taking your picture and your privacy is NOT even comparable to a Nazi..."

A few Kiwi instagrammers chimed in, writing: "this is her photo in New Zealand :( I hope she doesn't hate us!"

Another wrote: "This is embarrassing for us aucklanders :("

The singer was booed in Adelaide when she appeared on stage 80 minutes late, and critics said she was drunk during her Perth performance.
