Rihanna poses topless, sparks outrage
On Tuesday, Feb 16, Rihanna took to Twitter to share a topless picture of herself wearing a Lord Ganesha necklace.
The shoot was for her lingerie brand Savage X Fenty
The picture was criticised by many for disrespecting Hindu religion. BJP MLA Rama Kadam slammed the pop icon for shamefully mocking Hindu God Lord Ganesha.
It's appalling to see how @Rihanna shamefully mocks our beloved Hindu God #Ganesha. This exposes how #Rihanna has no idea or respect for Indian culture, tradition and our issues here. Hopefully, at least now @RahulGandhi and other Congress leaders will stop taking help from her https://t.co/7zUpnO05GL — Ram Kadam - राम कदम (@ramkadam) February 16, 2021

She landed another controversy during the launch of her brand Savage X Fenty lingerie show, the event had song 'Doom' being played which has a Muslim text called Hadith in it. This did not go well with people and they called her out immediately.
