Erykah Badu ruffled a few feathers in Malaysia recently over a tattoo of the word “Allah” on her shoulder. Ms.Badu was scheduled to perform a concert at Kuala Lampur, but local officials caught wind of her tattoo and officially canceled her gig.
The country’s Ministry officials were forced to kick Erykah to the curb after receiving numerous complaints from local Muslim groups demanding that the concert be canceled. The groups complained that Badu is not a “good role model” for Malaysian youths and an “insult” to Islam. Wow, that’s pretty intense!
Here’s the kicker…the tattoo was a temporary!!
