Robyn Rihanna Fenty is a Barbadian singer, actress, and businesswoman.
Rihanna has being called out by the muslim community for allegedly disrespecting Islam by using a particular song that was played during her fashion show which premiered on Friday, October 2, on Amazon Prime Video.
The song stirring up the controversy is called ‘Doom’.The song reportedly samples vocals of a Hadith being read in Arabic and it was played at Rihanna’s fashion show as models scantily-clad in lingerie sashayed.
However, while Rihanna has been praised for casting a range of body types and ethnicities, she has come under fire for using a track that contains sacred Islamic phrases in the show.
Below are a few comments criticizing the singer:
“Rihanna is messed up for using a song with a Hadith in it to play at her LINGERIE show,” one person wrote. “What is up with artists using Islam as an aesthetic?? Have some respect.”
@youstrflh said; ‘not Rihanna using a song with the Quran mixed into it for her Lingerie show…..unfortunately we will have to unstan.’
Another added: “As a Muslim, no words can describe how disappointed I am with Rihanna for letting her models dance to hadith.”
