Rihanna’s Fenty brand has been sued by a musical artist who claims that they received death threats after the company played the wrong version of their song during the Savage X Fenty 2020 fall show.

The musical artist, who filed the lawsuit as Jane Doe to protect their identity, alleges that the company reached out to use one of their songs but instead, they aired a wrong version of the track that “included a sample of sacred proverbs being chanted.”

In a suit obtained by TMZ, Doe states that they made it clear to Fenty reps one version of the song had the religious verses and the other did not, and warned them not to use the Islamic proverbs.The song, titled “Doom” reportedly contained a hadith, and the artist behind the song, later publicly apologized in a tweet for unknowingly including the sample in her song.

Rihanna also issued a public apology via her Instagram story following the immediate backlash, “I’d like to thank the Muslim community for pointing out a huge oversight that was unintentionally offensive in our Savage X Fenty show,” she wrote.
