Robyn Rihanna Fenty is a musician, actress, and businesswoman from Barbad. She infuriated many Hindus in a recent post after she shared her topless pictures while wearing a chunky Lord Ganesha pendant. Rihanna was barely dressed at the time, wearing boxer shorts and covering her breast with one hand, she captioned her picture as “When @popcaanmusic said, “Me nuh wan ya wear no lingerie tonight fame girl”.
Viewer’s response towards Rihanna’s post:
The post was bombarded with many comments and immediately grabbed people’s attention towards her topless picture. For westerners, Rihanna was looking cool due to her aesthetic jewelry and shining skin. On the other hand, the her topless picture got excessive dislikes from Hindus as she was profaning their religious God. A user wrote, “Is that Ganeshji on your neck? I have lost all my respect for you today ”. Another commented, “Rihanna!! stop using my religion as an aesthetic!! That Ganesh figurine at the end of the chain 🙁 is a holy and sacred figure for us Hindus.” One of them responded as “Ganesha is an Indian god and it’s really offensive that you wore it without even knowing what you’re wearing sorry but I had to say it please learn from this RiRi”. All these comments show how disrespectful this post became for many Indian fans.
Kangana Rananut introduces Rihanna to those who don’t know her:
The recent humiliating post by Rihanna on the ongoing protest by farmers has made Indians angry in response to this Kangana Rananut, an Indian actress sounded grating. Kangana introduced Rihanna to those who don’t know her and wrote , “Yes, please! India wants to know, to simplify to Indians, she is a singer much like Sunidhi Chauhan or Neha Kakkar …what is so special about her, well… she can shake her bum cheeks and expose her ass crack right into the camera lens while singing..ya that’s all. Nothing else.” For further information she asked viewers to consult twitter.
Her professional introduction by Kangana:
Commenting on Rihanna’s profession, Kangana added, “Someone who can’t sell music without making it sensual/adult. Unlike classical and genuine singers where the body is of no consequence. A porn singer is hugely dependent on his/her flesh show-off, private parts exposure, and mediocre talent. This makes them absolutely messy, and junk. She hasn’t released a single song in 5 years, sells makeup but looks like she is feeling Corona blues, Forbes estimated incomes are just PR gimmicks big sham, a million or two. won’t hurt her right now, also notice in her tweet she did not commit to any opinion just a vague tweet.” There is a dispute going on Twitter whether she has deliberately done it or was ignorant about disrespecting Hinduism.
Although Kangana was protecting her religion, people called her out due to her direct criticism of Badgalriri and similarly disrespecting Americans. However, Rihanna’s action was far too disappointing as she provoked religious insecurities.
