Rihanna Is Being Accused Of Cultural Appropriation

Rihanna recently posted a topless photo on Instagram that is getting a lot of attention…

…but not all of it is good.  The singer was wearing a pendant of a Hindu God named Ganesh, and now people are accusing her of cultural appropriation. There were many comments under her page talking about of offensive the photo was. One fan wrote, “This is disrespectful to Hinduism. You wouldn’t wear an Islamic necklace and take a photo like this, so why would you wear a sacred Hindu deity and take a photo like this? Please take the time to learn what Ganesha means and don’t disrespect religion like this.” Others were calling the pic unacceptable, offensive, and insulting.
