Egypt: Egypt TikTok and Instagram stars pay heavy price for ‘indecency’

BBC: Egypt TikTok and Instagram stars pay heavy price for ‘indecency’. “‘We were left in utter shock. She did nothing wrong – my sister is not a criminal,’ says Rahma al-Adham, talking of her younger sibling, a social media influencer in Egypt. Mawada, a 22-year-old university student, was last month sentenced to two years in prison after being convicted of violating Egyptian family values. She was arrested in May after publishing videos on TikTok and Instagram where she lip-synced to famous songs and danced in fashionable clothes. The prosecutor found her videos indecent.”
