I totally agree with you Julia. There has been so many excuses as to why this happened but I’m not buying any of them. Rihanna has posed in the hijab and done many dispectful things with regards to Islam. She gets away with it every single time. Why does she think that she can use someone else’s religion like an aesthetic. It so damn arrogant when you think of it.
My travels have taught me to respect others’ cultures and beliefs. As a sociologist I would say that every society has things that it holds sacred. We should respect these things and not use them in an inappropriate way.
