Rihanna recently posted a topless photo on Instagram that is getting a lot of attention, but not all of it is good.  The singer was wearing a pendant of a Hindu God named Ganesh, and now people are accusing her of cultural appropriation.  One person wrote, “This is disrespectful to Hinduism. You wouldn’t wear an Islamic necklace and take a photo like this, so why would you wear a sacred Hindu deity and take a photo like this? Please take the time to learn what Ganesha means and don’t disrespect religion like this.”  Others were calling the pic unacceptable, offensive, and insulting.
