A video went viral on all social media platforms of one of the most popular singers in Egypt, Mahmoud El Esseily, as he embarrasses one of his fans publicly during a concert. The video shows Esseily asking the fan if he has a “wasta” to take a picture with him, explaining that he’ll have to take pictures with everyone else if he did.
The video sparked discontent among social media users, especially from Esseily fans who were disappointed by the ego of their favorite star. However, Esseily responded to the incident with a tweet to apologize for his choice of words, and another one to clarify what happened.
Some are still furious and are not satisfied with his reply, while others understood that it’s just a minor mistake and a wrong choice of words. On the other hand, here are some other celebrities that took pictures with fans without any wasta!
