Global pop star Rihanna has just wrapped her annual Savage x Fenty lingerie fashion show over the weekend.
The event, however, drew tons of negative response from a lot of people, particularly Muslims, who slammed the Barbadian starlet for using a song that contains a narration of the Islamic hadith.
For those wondering, the track is called “Doom”, created by a London-based producer named Coucou Chloe more than two years ago. Coucou herself admitted to remixing an audio that turned out to be a hadith which talks about the signs of the Judgment Day and also the end of times.
Seemingly overfilled with disappointment, a lot of netizens slammed the 32-year-old and her team for allegedly mocking Islam religion. Others also urged Rihanna, who was also the creative director of the fashion event, to do more research before making a decision. Previously, Rihanna also came under fire for using a hijabi model in her past beauty campaign for her cosmetics brand Fenty Beauty.
As a result of the immense backlash from members of Twitterverse, Rihanna is currently trending on Twitter. Check out some of their reactions here:

So far, the “Love On The Brain” singer has yet to clear the air on the controversy, sparking more fury among Muslim fans.
