Alicia Keys Catching Heat Over Provocative Muslim Image


R&B singer Alicia Keys under fire from the Muslim community for an insensitive Tweet about diversity...

Alicia Keys was taken to task on Sunday after Tweeting a picture of a Muslim woman wearing a niqab with on bare leg showing.


Some of her fans were horrified that Alicia would romanticize the oppression of women while other's were offended that the bare leg was showing which is punishable by lashes in some orthodox countries.



Alicia later deleted the Tweet.

Ignorance at its best. Yes we live in a free speech country but one should do their research if they are going to cross over genres. These celebs need to educate themselves before jumping on a band wagon.

I knew Alecia was kind of slow, she always have this deer in the headlights look on her face. Alecia is like a Beyoncé, cute but not much in their brains

No it's not "analyzing shit to death"! That shit is offensive!!! That is just as bad as Ben Carson and his "slaves were 'immigrants'" comment, foh!
They are trivializing the suffering of human people.

Yes Alicia is slow, glad someone else will acknowledge it. She wouldn't know left from right if a man didn't tell her first.

She's only doing as told, desensitize the sheep to sight of the niqab, a uniform of the oppressed.

This is the #1 reason why these silly will do anything for fame and money puppets get blasted by the public. They'll do and/or say anything trusting that whatever they do it will be just fine because they are celebrities and were prob told it would be just fine. Star power isn't doing what the "in" thing to do for fame. Alicia prob thought this was going to make her star power more powerful and look great, but instead it exposed her ignorance and selfishness. I blame both the industry and Alicia for this. Oh well...Just like everything else in that trash industry...this, too, shall pass.
