When will people learn that publicly blasting Robin Williams is not a good idea?! A pop star from The United Arab Emirates has come out saying that she has no sympathy for Robin Williams because he disrespected Islam.
According to The Daily Mail, singer Balqees Fathi commented on twitter, “I woke up this morning to a ginormous display of emotion for the news of Hollywood actor Robin Williams’ death of depression. Frankly, I did not sympathise with him, and thanked god for the blessing of Islam.”
Later on she added, “I found this video of him (Williams) …he mocks the Quran in front of millions for the sake of his Zionist views. I know I am right. I dedicate this to his fans.”
The clip she may be referring to shows Williams poking fun at the jihad during a standup comedy act. Frankly, this Fathi girl needs to get a sense of humor because the clip isn’t nearly as offensive as it is hilarious.
The reaction to Fathi’s tweets has been mixed. Muslims have leapt to her defense and retweeted her comments over 1000 times, while others have blasted her for her insensitivity.
What do you think? Does Fathi have a point, or does she need to mind her own business? Let us know in the comments below!
