Rihanna is taking full responsibility for offending her audience.
Days after her Savage X Fenty lingerie Show premiered on Amazon Prime Video,
the multi-hyphenate superstar issued a public apology to the Muslim community
for one specific moment during the runway event.
The singer faced criticism for featuring the song "Doom" by London-based artist Coucou Chloe,
which includes vocal samples of narration from the Islamic Hadith.
According to CNN, the Hadith is considered extremely sacred to Muslims
and comes secondary only to the Quran in terms of textual authority.
In the wake of backlash from the Muslim community, Rihanna offered her remorse and a statement shared on Instagram.
She wrote "I'd like to thank the Muslim community for pointing out a huge oversight
that was unintentionally offensive in our Savage X Fenty show."
