It all started in 2010 when the Moroccan star, Saad Lamjarred, was visiting the United States. He was accused of beating and raping a 21-year-old woman from Brooklyn, New York. The Moroccan star later fled the states after posting bail and was at risk of being arrested if he ever returned, but the case was eventually dropped in 2016 when a settlement was reached.
That wasn’t the end of it, as the star was also accused of sexually assaulting three other women from France and Morocco in 2016, 2017, and 2018 following the same pattern of abuse. But the star always succeeded in getting away with it, either through paying bail, reaching a settlement, the victim withdrawing charges under family or social pressure, or when Mohamed VI, King of Morocco, interfered to help cover fees and hire a legal team to defend him. But is he simply going to get away with it every single time?
Now, social media users are going insane, refusing to remain silent after Cairo Show posted that Saad Lamjarred will soon perform in Cairo. People left comments on the post with the words “rapist” and “don’t come”. Cairo Show started deleting the comments at first, and deleted the whole post this morning.
