  1. Excuse me… “unprofessional”?!!
    It’s her own personal account, and she can post whatever she wants. The fact that most ppl in this society are insensitive and mocked her too much does not make a valid point for such arrogant article.

    1. Hi Salma,
      Let’s first begin with the fact, “celebrities’ accounts aren’t personal accounts”, they represent their brands and should be treated carefully.
      We’re sorry if you got that feeling about the article, it wasn’t meant to give that wrong impression. Regarding your concern, we’ve revisited the article and yes “unprofessional” is misplaced. “edited”
      Once again, we extend our apologies for any wrong impression may occurred.
      Thanks a lot.

      1. Thanks a lot for your reply and for accepting criticism. May be we could agree that celebrities’ accounts represents their brands. Definitely. But celebrities around the world use social media in very different and creative ways to get more connected with their fans. One of the ways I always appreciate from non Arab celebrities is how they never fail to show vulnerability. Thanks again.
