Rihanna issued an apology to the Muslim community after receiving backlash for using sacred Islamic verses in a song played at her fashion show.
The 32-year-old Bajan singer’s star-studded Savage X Fenty fashion show debuted on Amazon Prime on Oct. 2 and was praised for its inclusivity, featuring models of different sizes, races, and genders.
But after the praise came criticism. Viewers took offense to a portion of the show in which models clad in lingerie danced to a song which sampled audio of someone reading the Hadith, the holy narrative of the Prophet Mohammad that is deeply revered by the Muslim community.
