Rihanna was called out on social media yesterday (February 17th) after she posted a topless photo of herself wearing a necklace that featured Hindu god Ganesha. One person tweeted, “rihanna! stop using my religion as an aesthetic!! that ganesh figure at the end of the chain 🙁 is a holy and sacred figure for us hindus.”
Another person wrote, “Dear @rihanna, stop mocking Hindu Temples & Gods with indecencies. You're insulting the oldest, holiest religion in the world and hurting Hindus sentiments. We request you apologize. We know you & @GretaThunberg are paid global propagandists to incite trouble against Hindus and India.”
Rihanna hasn't responded to the criticsm.
