Ri Ri has upset some fans after an Instagram post of her wearing silk boxers, a necklace of the Hindu god and not much else.

Rihanna has been accused of cultural appropriation after posing topless in an Instagram shot, wearing just silk boxers and a necklace featuring the Hindu god Ganesha.

The singer and designer was promoting her lingerie line Savage X Fenty, but has angered some fans by choosing the religious deity as part of her fashion apparel.

Ganesha, or Ganesh – who has the head of an elephant – is one of the best-known Hindu gods and is worshipped for his wisdom and association with success.

However, her pairing of the white beaded pendant with just a bare chest, tattoos and pants led to a backlash on social media, with one fan calling it “disrespect 101”.

Another wrote: “Dear Rihanna, plz stop this nonsense. Super offensive wearing Ganesha like that. Our first god, a holy sentiment to millions of people celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi every year. Sorry Ri, u disappointed me &others u u have crossed d limits [sic].”

Someone else questioned: “Why the Ganesh God pendant for selling lingerie?”
