Rihanna’s Fenty Corp. Sued by Musician Over Offensive Version of Song Played at 2020 Savage X Fenty



Rihanna’s Fenty brand has been sued by a musical artist who alleges that she received death threats because the company played the wrong version of her song during Savage X Fenty’s 2020 fall show.
The wrong version of her song, titled “Doom,” includes a sample of holy Islamic proverbs.
The musical artist became the recipient of threats, including ones of decapitation. 

The artist told Fenty which version of the song they should use since there were two versions.
Last October, Rihanna issued an apology for playing the song.
After the incident, Rihanna and Fenty removed the song from the fashion show recording.

This wasn’t enough for the artist, she has had to go into hiding due to the death threats, which has caused anxiety and depression. She is now seeking $10 million in damages from the singer.
