POP star Rihanna has compared Auckland paparazzi to Nazis in an online post, drawing criticism over her choice of metaphor.

The 25-year-old singer from Barbados played three shows in Auckland this week as part of her Diamonds World Tour.

She posted a paparazzi photo of her standing in her Auckland hotel room window wrapped in a blanket - taken by Kiwi photographer Simon Runting - to her Instagram on Wednesday morning with the caption: "I hate these niggaz more than the Nazi".

The caption - lyrics from a Kanye West song - received a mixed reaction from fans, including one who tweeted: "Seriously Rihanna? someone taking your picture and your privacy is NOT even comparable to a Nazi."

Another wrote: "Rihanna if you can even tell me anything irrelevant to the Nazi party and what happened in world war two, i will accept your Nazi instagram"
