Selena Gomez Deletes Controversial Abu Dhabi’s Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque Photo

Share This

Insensitive Selena Gomez and some of her friends went to Dubai to have fun but she managed to cause a major controversy in the process. Selena paid a visit to the Abu Dhabi’s Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and she very disrespectfully exposed her ankles inside the mosque for a photo that she shared on her official Instagram profile. It is a major offense in the Muslim World to expose any part of your body even if it's just an ankle. When in Rome, act like a Roman!

Dailymail has the scoop:
Pop starlet Selena Gomez was so heavily criticized for posting pictures of herself flashing her ankle inside Abu Dhabi’s Grand Mosque on Instagram that she appears to have deleted the evidence altogether. A second picture, showing Gomez and fellow musicians, Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Cody Simpson and Shay Mitchell smiling and striking poses has also been lambasted but remained on her Instagram Thursday. Mosque visiting rules strictly ban all ‘intimate behavior’ including holding hands and kissing, and states that all skirts must be ankle-length. Commenting on the picture, Alaa Almitwally said: ‘Disrecpectful! It’s a religion place not a place to have fun in, so disappointed.’ Meanwhile another user, Ayisha Elturk, said: ‘If their intent was to learn about Islam they wouldn’t be posing like they were standing outside and amusement park. The Grand Mosque has caused problems for celebrities in the past, with controversial star Rihanna thrown out after posing for pictures inside the compound. Staff ejected the Barbadian singer after complaining she did not have permission to carry out a photoshoot while dressed head-to-toe in a black jumpsuit. Justifying their decision, workers at the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque said Rihanna’s actions had not been in keeping with the ‘sanctity’ of the site.
