Rihanna’s Fenty Company Sued For $10 Million In Damages, Over Using Song That Offended Muslims
Rihanna’s Fenty brand is being hit with a lawsuit for millions. According to TMZ, the lawsuit is based on Fenty playing an incorrect song during a fashion the show. The words, were offensive to Muslims.
Reportedly, a musician (who filed the lawsuit under Jane Doe to protect her identity) claims Fenty reached out to use one of her songs during a Savage X Fenty show last fall, but accidentally played a version of the song that included a sample of sacred Islamic proverbs being chanted.
The artist claims she immediately got threats on her life when the fashion show was live-streamed to millions. Prior to the show, the artist claims that they made it clear to Fenty reps one version of the song had the religious verses and one did not, and she warned them not to use the Islamic proverbs.
The artist claims she was forced into hiding after receiving a barrage of death threats over the song. She claims the constant threat of being decapitated and murdered led to anxiety and depression.
The artist is suing for more than $10 million in damages.
