Legit.ng has learnt a section of Muslims across the world recently called out the star and her fashion line for featuring a song called Doom by an artiste known as Coucou Chloe, which includes a Muslim text, Hadith.

Millions of Islam faithful world over camped on the singer's social media pages and asked for a formal apology from Fenty for using the song.

A random social media user posted:

''Um can we talk about the blasphemous song that was played during the Savage X runaway? A mix of Quran verses with an atrocious song? Not your fault however kinda disappointing for whoever was in charge of that awful playlist.”

Another netizen pointed out:

“I love you and you are the queen, but using a Islamic hadith as a track in your show is rude and disrespectful to all of your Muslim fans across the globe. I love you but that was just not it. Especially [because] you stand for diversity."
