Rihanna Apologizes To Islamic Fans

CELEBRITY NEWS - Kevin Douglas Article


Rihanna is one of the most popular artists on the planet today and her business moves are looked at as a hawk by fans all over the world. In general her latest show streaming on Amazon received a good reaction. The Savage X Fenty Show Vol. 2 program did have its critiques.

The fans pointed to a song from London producer Coucou Chloe, titled “Doom,” which was played during the runway portion of the show, and incorporated a hadith. In Islamic faith, a hadith is a sacred bit of text that details the sayings of Prophet Muhammad, and thus Muslims took to twitter to express their disdain with Rihanna’s oblivious or else pointed inclusion of a hadith in her show.

Rihanna made a public statement addressing the issue and let it be known that she was trying to be inclusive, but agreed the incident was a misstep that will not be made again with future events.

She writes:

“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. We understand that we have hurt many of our Muslim brothers and sisters, and i’m incredibly disheartened by this! I do not play with any kind of disrespect toward God or any religion and therefore the use of the 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,
