Egyptian actress, Yosra El Lozy, who is admired for her pretty looks and amazing acting skills, made an official apology on Twitter concerning an incident that occurred at Hany El Beheiry’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection fashion show.

El Lozy walked the runaway with Egypt’s most expensive wedding dress that allegedly costs around $5 million. The dress, however, weighed a bit too much that actress couldn’t carry it on her own. Ironically, two shirtless black men of color carried it for her.

Her appearance in an expensive dress that was being carried by two black men seemed very racist, and the Internet was completely outrage

People have been raging against hit mosalal “Sabe3 Gar” on social media in a rather intense way. Why, you ask? Well, some people believe that the series shows a very wrong picture of Egyptian girls. The angry fans believe that these type of girls who are “say3een” do not exist in Egypt, and that the series is attempting to westernize the Egyptian woman.

The above comment blatantly says that the series has gone too far with being inappropriate, to the extent that a child was born without marriage. The commenter feels that Egypt has been ruining our Muslim society.

This comment, on the other hand, denies that existence of such girls who curse a lot, get high, or travel with men.

However, the official page for Sabe3 Gar” responded to these people by simply dropping the ultimate truth bomb.

This post basically says that whether people like it or not, these girls exist in our society. The post continues to say that the show is just acknowledging that they do exist among us, and simply living in denial is these angry commenters’ own problem.

Whether you heard it at a random house party or in a taxi, the following song is just inescapable. “Ali Ya Ali” is a Shaabi one hit wonder that has been scientifically proven to improve any wedding by 200% when it gets played. However, we’re quite sure you’ve never listened to this version of it!

Emad Baarour sings the original version of the song, but Egyptian voice artist, Dalia Ihab Younis, decided to take things to the next level by singing it in a cappella with a classical twist — the result is beautiful.

Younis joined forces with some of her talented friends to create this weird yet stunning work of art, and we’re oh-so glad she did.

Smash & Grab? People are Robbing Louis Vuitton in Egypt

via Hotelier Middle East

via Hotelier Middle East

A lot of big names in the retail world, such as Chanel and Victoria’s Secret, have been getting demolished and robbed for unknown reasons, and it’s causing people — mostly fashion and business enthusiasts — to panic. It has been reported that Louis Vuitton lost $150,000 of merchandise during a raid in Ohio. However, the most challenging part was that these shops’ computer systems got hacked.

Yes, $150,000 from Louis Vuitton may simply just mean two phone cases, two bags and a coat — but, there is a much bigger problem. The vert fact that they system was breached means that they lost their customer loyalty entirely, and they might end up getting sued.

The comments are very intriguing and intense. One of the users said that “the direction of the economy is going to get worse unless costs go down or jobs pay more,” which honestly couldn’t be more true.

Another comment explained the consequent pathway for the targeted brands, and how they’ll have to increase their insurance policy.

Last but not least, one of the comments made a very good point. It briefly stated that to get rid of this unrest, we have to strive towards a sustainable economy, where there is no such thing as a huge economic disparity gap. When you make a small percentage of the population own more than all of the rest put together, that is inevitably a recipe for revolt.

 The robbing and the smashed up shops all resemble the situation that occurred in Egypt during the 2011 revolution — when stores were busted open and robbed like Carrefour and Tawheed w El Nour. Unlike Egypt, Sweden is supposedly safe and stable and the standards of living are reportedly high, so what does that mean for that country? It is safe to assume that the increase in brand’s prices are the main drive to this chaos?

Or, does this mean that due to floatation of the Egyptian pound, we’ll probably be experiencing similar incidents soon enough?

Owner of Sada al-Balad Media Group Mohamed Abu al-Enein has suspended one of its TV hosts Rasha Magdi and referred her to an internal investigation over inappropriate comments she made on air regarding Friday’s terrorist attack on the al-Rawda mosque in North Sinai.

Magdi went off script during her show on the privately-owned Sada al-Balad TV channel on Friday, describing terrorist attacks against the army and police as “mutual violence,” while suggesting that attacks against Christians are more understandable than attacks against Muslims.

“We saw attacks by terrorists on the police and army, and we said this is mutual violence. These extremist groups have attacked churches and we said that they think it is a [different] religion, not Islam, and it is hostile to them, and then we said it is okay, but how [can these groups attack] Muslims?,” Magdi said.

When Magdi worked for the state television network, several legal cases were filed against her for inciting hatred against Egypt’s Copic Christians, particularly regarding the killing by the Egyptian army of more than 25 Christians during what has become known as the Maspero massacre.

Abu El-Enein issued a statement on Saturday evening hailing the Egyptian police and army following Friday’s attack.

“The entire Egyptian people stand united behind our valiant armed forces and the heroic police forces and, God willing, we will win in our battle against these cowards,” the statement read.

“All of us, leaders and people, reject terrorism in all of its forms on any part of Egypt or anywhere in the world,” it went on to say.

“We in Egypt are one people, there is no difference between a Muslim and a Christian. All of us are equal. We live together in safety. […] terrorism and aggression against the [people] are criminal acts,” the statement concluded.
