Rihanna pens apology note after hurting religious sentiments of Muslim fans

Rihanna had been in the eye of storm after she hurt the religious sentiments of her Muslim fans across the world over usage of sacred texts in an offensive song during her recent fashion show. 

Addressing the matter, the Savage x Fenty CEO penned a note on Instagram, "I'd like to thank the Muslim community for pointing out a huge oversight that was unintentionally offensive in our savage x fenty show," Rihanna wrote.

The singer added that she did not intend to disrespect any religion.

"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," she added.
