Lebanese journalist Tammam Bleick was heavily criticized for exploiting controversial Lebanese figure Mariam Nour, 85, at her home, on 'With Tamim' show aired on Al-Jadeed channel.
According to the trailer, Bleick appeared trying to anger Nour, who is known for her quick anger and ill-considered reactions, which prompted her to hit Tammam and curse him with obscene words.
Tammam also appeared celebrating the 85th birthday of the Lebanese controversial, who in return got very angry, and kicked him and his crew out of her home.
The trailer alone caused a sensation on social media, and followers harshly attacked Tammam Bleick for deliberately provoking Mariam Nour in order to increase viewership and topping the trending lists.
One follower wrote: "An old woman let you into the sanctity of her home and you raped her in all every meaning of the word on air.. We are already distressed enough.. why do you upset us even more with this. Shame on you and, your crew Tammam Bleick and the channel who hired you."
Another one commented: "It's such a shame to see this episode pass."
And a third commentator said: "Tammam Bleick, you are not entitled to what you did with Mrs. Mariam Nour. You have violated her home and its sanctity, and provoked her enough."
The public demanded that Tammam Bleick and the channel be held accountable, because of what they did with Mariam Nour, considering that even if she was a controversial figure, it would have been better not to show her in this way that is offensive to a woman of her age.
