Rihanna issues apology to the Muslim Community


Rihanna is apologizing after facing backlash for including an Islamic sacred text in her Savage X Fenty Show Vol 2 on Amazon Prime recently. She wrote on her Instagram story this morning, “I’d like to thank the Muslim community for pointing out a huge oversight that was unintentionally offensive in our Savage X Fenty show, I would more importantly like to apologize to you for this honest, yet careless mistake.”

Her fashion show included the song “Doom” by Coucou Chloe, which sampled a reading of the prophet Muhammad, about judgment day. Rihanna went on to say “We understand that we have hurt many of our Muslim brothers and sisters, and I’m incredibly disheartened by this!” she continued. “I do not play with any kind of disrespect toward God or any religion and therefore the use of this song in our project was completely irresponsible! Moving forward we will make sure nothing like this ever happens again. Thank you for your forgiveness and understanding, Rih.”
