Jennifer Lopez Under Fire From Human Rights Foundation

Jennifer Lopez was criticized last month when news broke that she sang “Happy Birthday” to Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow, the controversial leader of Turkmenistan, and now the Human Rights Foundation is looking into the singer’s history of performing for polarizing figures.

In a statement on its website, the HRF claims Lopez has earned “in excess of $10 million for serenading crooks and dictators from Eastern Europe and Russia.”

After her performance for Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow, J.Lo’s camp explained in a statement that the singer did not know about the country’s oppressive rulings, saying, “Had there been knowledge of human rights issues any kind, Jennifer would not have attended.”
