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.
