After facing massive backlash from netizens, Rihanna has finally issued a public apology in response to the controversy surrounding her recent “Savage x Fenty” lingerie show.
In a lengthy post on her Instagram Story, the sizzling singer-entrepreneur explained that she and her team did not intend to offend any religion, especially Islam.
RiRi opened by writing, “I’d like to thank the Muslim community for pointing out a huge oversight that was unintentionally offensive in our ‘Savage x Fenty’ show. I would more importantly like to apologise to you for this honest, yet careless mistake,”
“I do not 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,” the Barbadian beauty ended her statement.
