The World cup that is taking place in Russia is witnessing a big following from Arab celebrities, and even from Arab female artists that were put in embarassing situations because of their soccer related opinions and statements.
Lebanese singer Yara is considered one of most passionate celebrities about soccer even before the world cup and has always declared her support for FC Barcelona and its star Lionel Messi, which made her face an embarassing situation after Argentina lost the match against France, which made many of her followers on social media tease her for her grief over the defeat of her favorite player.
But the most embarassing situation was for Suzan Najm Al Deen after she was interviewed in the show "Asdaa Al Alam" (The Echoes of the World) presented by Mustafa Al Agha, as she fell into a mistake of mentioning that Portuguese player Ronaldo and Argentinian Lionel Messi play in the Brazilian team which made her face lots of mocking comments on social media.
Suzan Najm Al Deen defended her mistake saying that she is an artist that likes Latin soccer but that she is not a specialist in the game and said "My love for latin soccer is what made me link Brazil, Christiano and Messi, and since I am an artist and not a specialist in Soccer, I used the wrong terms in my interview with my beautiful friend Mustafa Al Agha, and like always the small ones always try to score illusional goals.. Let them play another card."
لما واحدة من البنات تدى رأيها فى حاجة بلاقى الولاد و قاصدة اقول ولاد بيردوا عليها بجملة تافهة (روحى على المطبخ) و دى حاجة حلوةو تدعو للفخر ان دى الحاجة اللى مشهورين بيها ، لكن انتوا الحاجة الوحيدة اللى مشهورين بيها للاسف مش هنعرف كبنات نقولهالكوا عشان هى بصراحة حاجة تعر #اتلموا— Ayten Amer (@AYTENAMER) ١ يوليو ٢٠١٨
Ayten Amer on the other hand did not like that many mocked her interest in soccer especially comments from guys that crticize women who support soccer, and she tweeted attacking those in a harsh way saying "When one of the girls gives her opinion in something, I always find one of the boys -and I used 'boys' intentionally- replying to her saying 'Go to the Kitchen'. While the thing we are famous for makes us proud, the thing you guys are known for is inappropriate for us to even say as girls, because it is honesly something that causes shame, behave".
