After being photographed embracing a man, the Egyptian singer responds to the anger he provoked against him in Egypt and the Arab world: "If I had known who it was of course I would have refused to be photographed with him"
Did not know?
Muhammad Ramadan, Omar Adam
When you say that one picture is worth a thousand words, you probably mean a picture like that of Omar Adam with the Egyptian singer Muhammad Ramadan, who never stops issuing headlines.
After suffering a diminution of rage from his audience and even being suspended from the players' union of which he is a member, now the Egyptian singer has decided to play his part in the story - in a post he posted on Instagram.
"I respect the union's decision," Ramadan began, "although I explained what happened behind the scenes of the photo with the Israeli. I explained that I did not know who it was and if I knew, of course I would refuse to be photographed with him. In addition, the place we were photographed is a restaurant. "Songs in English, French, Arabic and also in Hebrew. What was I supposed to do when the Israeli song was played? Leave my friends and run to cry in the elevator? I was in an Arab country and this situation is new. Although I made all these things clear to the president, I was prevented from playing in Egypt."
Ramadan signed his remarks in a cynical tone, apparently, when he wrote: "Thank you to the Actors' Union, thank you to the production company for canceling my Ramadan series, and thank you to my audience for not supporting me. I put my trust only in God."
As you may recall, in a photo published last weekend, a man is seen being photographed with the Egyptian singer while they are hugging - an act of closeness that, as mentioned, was not liked by the audience of the Ramadan singer.
