Rihanna has apologised after using a controversial song at her latest Savage X Fenty Vol.2 fashion show. She received a backlash online for using the song Doom by artist Coucou Chloe, which includes a Muslim text known as a Hadith.
The singer was praised for her inclusivity but later it was pointed out by several Muslim fans for disrespecting the religion, a mistake she characterized as “honest, yet careless.”
“I’d like to thank the Muslim community for pointing out a huge oversight that was unintentionally offensive in our savage x fenty show,” Rihanna wrote in her Instagram Stories. “I would more importantly like to apologize to you for this honest, yet careless mistake.”
