Rihanna unleashed a ton of criticism on herself a few days ago when she featured a hadith by Prophet Muhammad in her “Savage X Fenty 2” lingerie fashion show.
It is a known fact that the hadiths are the sacred texts retelling Prophet Muhammad’s sayings and advice. So, it came as a no surprise that people from around the world both Muslims and non-Muslims took it to the internet to criticize Rihanna’s disrespect to the Islam.
After the internet’s backlash and criticism, Rihanna used the social media platform Instagram to address the issue directly by saying:
“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, Rih.”
