One of Lebanon's hottest stars hit back at one of the world's most dangerous terrorist groups.
Superstar Maya Diab responded to ISIS's delusional invitation for her to join them for sexual jihad.
"Islam Yakhoun," an Egyptian man who's reportedly recently joined ISIS, tweeted last week, "Maya Diab is so hot, May God bless her and guide her to the path of Jihad Nikah."
In an interview with Egyptian bellydancer and TV host Fifi Abdo, the 34-year-old singer said that ISIS's request is "not funny at all," after Abdo tried to laugh off the subject with her.
"They're not kidding; this is what's become of the Arab world. Those groups kill in such a barbaric way. We live in a scary world now.
"Extremist thinking is one of the reasons behind the spread of terrorist groups in the Arab world," Maya said, reported Al Quds Al Arabi.
When asked about Lebanese singer Fadel Shaker, who quit singing years ago to join an extremist fighter group in Lebanon, but has returned to the music scene now, Maya said, "To be honest with you, I don't know a singer by the name of Fadel Shaker."
A big "ouch" for Shaker, as some believe Maya was indirectly implying that he belongs to a terrorist group and not the music world, according to Al Quds Al Arabi.
But for now, will ISIS follow up Maya's response with a new tweet?
