Rihanna sparks fury

World-renowned American singer Rihanna sparked another India fury after she posted a topless picture of herself wearing a pendant with an icon of the Hindu deity Ganesha.

In the photo, she’s topless and covering her chest part with her hand. Around her neck is a lavender pendant of Ganesha.

Users have been calling her out under the post for appropriating their culture and misusing their religious symbol.

Furthermore, Indian nationalists have begun reporting Rihanna to the authorities and filing complaints against her for the post.

Earlier, Rihanna had spoken in favour of Indian farmers. She had shared an article on violence against farmers on her Twitter account and questioned why it’s not spoken about enough.

As soon as Rihanna’s tweet came to light, the BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) supporters got instigated to raise their voice.

Soon after her tweet Rihanna became a top trend on social media in India. Her post had garnered over 75k retweets and 139k likes in about 2 hours.
