CAIRO - 16 October 2019: In fury, superstar Sherine Abdel Wahab decided to boycott all social media platforms because of what she faced after posting a comment about fires in Lebanon.
“Today I wrote a post about Lebanon because I wanted to be of help.And my voice is all I have. I am not a doctor or an engineer; my voice is the only thing I can offer in this situation. I thought even monetary support would not be much of a help because no matter how much money I donate, it won't be enough compared to the size of the catastrophe. So, I thought I'd rather be positive and do something that can be of value,” commented Abdel Wahab on her official Instagram account.

“When I saw the comments made after the statement I uploaded, I realized I won't please everyone, no matter what I try to do. Rumors follow me everywhere; they said I got divorced, that I had an abortion, and they even claimed I betrayed my country. This is why I decided to boycott all social media platforms so that I won't hurt myself or those who read the comments made by some,” resumed the singer.
The controversial singer commented on Oct. 16 on her official Instagram account: “My heart is burning for our beloved Lebanon. In such situations, words are not enough.I am totally ready to stage a concert, where all the profit will be dedicated to those who got harmed by the fires. I call on Prime Minister of Lebanon Saad el-Hariri to organize a concert for me that would be under his patronage.”
