Egyptian comedian Hesham Mansour on Facebook said that he was going to mock Sherine for her tearful photos but he stopped for a moment and said to himself that it might be a real difficult situation, and she needed support from anyone. He explained in a comedian way what could be Sherine’s situation that brought her to post her tearful photos to millions on the internet and ask for their help, he wondered, how can helpless people on the internet help Sherine? He continued that it seems that Sherine is under a huge pressure. We love you Sherine.

Will Sherine keep losing face online? Most celebrities allover the world tend to hire PR and Social Media people to take care of their brands offline/online. Because every single post matters, it can strength your position/image or destroy you at some point.
