Further, Rita said that she is a proud Albanian and that her intention was not to disrespect her people.

“Last night while performing at the SZIN Festival in Hungary, I was given a flag by a young fan. From the lighting directly in my eyes and on the stage, I could not clearly see which country the flag represented. As soon as I left the stage, I realized that it was a Serbian flag and not a Hungarian one. While I support all my fans, from all countries and cultures, I want to make it very clear that I am a proud Kosovar Albanian, and it was not my intention to disrespect my heritage, or upset my people or my family.” , Rita Ora said.

Rita was performing in Hungary on Saturday night at the Szeged Youth Festival when a Serbian flag was thrown at her by fans.

The singer took the flag and placed it on her arm, a gesture that has evoked many reactions on social networks.
