Rihanna's Cosmetics Brand Under Scrutiny Over Child Labour In India
NGO Legal Rights Observatory has filed a complaint against American popstar Rihanna's cosmetics brand 'Fenty Beauty' for allegedly promoting child labour in India. The complaint to national child rights commission NCPCR stated that "child labourers work in dire conditions" in Jharkhand mines to extract mica used in beauty products. The NGO also sought investigation and supply chain clearances meant for prohibiting child labours. Rihanna was recently in news for supporting the ongoing farmers’ protest.
