Haifa Wehbe has slammed Egyptian Sheikh Safwat Hijazi live on air after he issued a statement saying she should "repent" and "stop all the nudity... because this angers the Lord." The Lebanese superstar hit back at her critics on TV show, 'Ana wal Asal' (Me and the Honey), saying she was "respectable whether you like it or not."
Haifa went on to say the Egyptian Sheikh should focus on the issues in his own country like poverty, hunger and the unresolved constitution of Egypt. She suggested Safwat take a look through the other TV channels to get a reality check.
The Sheikh had previously warned Haifa about coming to a newly elected Muslim Brotherhood Egypt but the Lebanese star told viewers she had no intention of avoiding the country, adding that the Sheikh had no authority within the Brotherhood to ban her.
But Haifa managed to keep a cool head in the interview and even issued an apology - although not to the Sheikh - to fellow star Cyrine Abdel Nour, who she ignored two years ago at the Murex D'Or awards show in Lebanon. Haifa claimed the table so long she couldn't see Cyrine and that it was an honest mistake.
