The video of Syrian singer George Wassouf bowing for Syrian businessman
Rami Makhloof, who is Syrian President Bashar Al Asad’s cousin, gave rise to
heated criticism amongst all who watched it. Some interpreted the scene as
George being very much into his singing and merely bowed unintentionally in
front of Rami.

Others who had placed
George on the black of list of singers to be boycotted for supporting the
regime of Bashar Al Asad considered the singer’s actions as degrading and
interpreted the video as him bowing for Rami.
George was present at a social event hosted by Syrian singer
Ali Al Deek and he, George, began dancing amidst a group of people among who
was Rami Makhloof and suddenly bowed in front of him.
George did not comment about the incident that was filmed
and rapidly spread over the internet.
