Rihanna apologizes to the 'Muslim community' for using song featuring sacred Islamic texts in her very racy Savage x Fenty lingerie show

 


Rihanna has apologized to the Muslim community for employing a song featuring sacred Islamic texts as a soundtrack to her racy Savage x Fenty lingerie show.

On Friday, Oct. 2, Rihanna's second annual show for her lingerie brand debuted on Amazon Prime Video sparked outrage amongst fans after models were seen dancing to “Doom,” a 2017 song by London-based producer Coucou Chloe featuring a snippet from the Hadith on Judgment Day 

The 32-year-old pop star has now apologized to those offended by the soundtrack during a heartfelt post she shared via her Instagram Story on Tuesday.

Rihanna said she was 'incredibly disheartened' knowing she had hurt 'many of our Muslim brothers and sisters', and called use of the song 'completely irresponsible.'

'I'd wish to thank the Muslim community for remarking an enormous oversight that was unintentionally offensive in our savage x fenty show,' Rihanna posted on Tuesday.

'I would more importantly wish to apologize to you for this honest, yet careless mistake. We understand that we've hurt many of our Muslim brothers and sisters, and i am incredibly disheartened by this!

'I don't 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.
