Rihanna took to social media on Tuesday to issue a heartfelt apology to the Muslim community for a careless mistake that was made during her Savage X Fenty Show.
During the show, lingerie models danced to “Doom” by London-based producer Coucou Chloe.
The song, originally released in 2017, includes a remix of a hadith narration.
The hadith, a written record of the sayings and actions of the Prophet Mohammed and his closest companions, is considered extremely sacred to Muslims, and come secondary only to the Quran in terms of textual authority. (Via CNN)
Coucou Chloe issued the following apology via Twitter:
Rihanna took to Instagram to issue her apology.
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 apologize to you for this honest, yet careless mistake. We understand that we have hurt many of our Muslim brothers and sisters, and I’m incredibly disheartened by this!
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. Rih.
