Ramadan is the time for fasting, spirituality, humbleness and memes. One man who has found himself the center of every post on social media is Amr Khaled.
In an unexpected religious twist, the Muslim activist and television preacher starred in an ad alongside chef Assia Othman for Al-Wataniya chicken. Khaled claimed that in Ramadan we all need healthy recipes to elevate our spiritual experience. While going healthy is a no-brainer, everyone managed to turn the ad into a joke, and claimed that Khaled is using his religious influence for marketing.
The ad was immediately retracted and the Islamist preacher courageously admitted he was wrong in a social media public apology. It’s only the fourth day of Ramadan and celebrities are making public apologies. Social media is ruthless.
