Why is Rihanna posing with a Ganesha necklace?

Recently, American pop singer came under fire for posing topless with a Ganesha necklace.

A week ago, Rihanna posted a picture of herself on her Instagram where she is seen with purple boxers and purple jewelry on. What enticed the wrath of the public is not the fact that she was topless, but the fact that the necklace she was wearing had a Ganesha Murti on it. Netizens were furious about the fact that Americans will call out anyone for cultural appropriation yet seemingly hyped Riri up without actually educating her on the religious article.

What are your thoughts on this situation? Does she deserve the bashing?
