Rihanna Celebrates 33rd Birthday, Gets Shoutout From Beyonce, DJ Khaled, Spice & More

The Hindu community found the picture in poor taste, and of course, some of the comments likened the act to “cultural appropriation.” This is not the first time the singer was accused of this, as in October 2020, she issued an apology for using a song that sampled Islamic text in her Savage X Fenty fashion show. Happy Birthday, Rihanna! Happy Birthday @rihanna !!! Caribbean gyal run dis ask Riri.”
