Selena Gomez Engages In Ankle Porn, Disrespects Mosque

Selena Gomez recently sparked controversy during a trip to Abu Dhabi with her celebrity friends Kendall Jenner, Shay Mitchell, Cody Simpson, and Gigi Hadid. Selena, who went to Abu Dhabi with her friends to celebrate New Year’s Day, posted several photos on her Instagram that show the group visiting the Abu Dhabi Grand Mosque. The goofy pictures raised some eyebrows, but one picture was deemed controversial enough that Selena had to delete it.

The photo in question shows Selena in full traditional Muslim garb, but popping her leg out to show her ankle, which is a sign of impropriety in Muslim culture. Mosque visiting rules clearly state that all “intimate behavior,” such as holding hands and kissing, are not allowed. It also states that all skirts must be ankle length. It’s disrespectful enough as it is, but to do it in a mosque was considered highly offensive.

One commenter wrote, “I was just thinking, why purposely go to a sacred place and do something considered disrespectful?”

Several fans have spoken out about the incident on the internet.

Alaa Almitwally said, “Disrespectful! It’s a religious place not a place to have fun in, so disappointed.”

Another commenter named Ayisha Elturk said, “If their intent was to learn about Islam they wouldn’t be posing like they were standing outside and amusement park.”

Back in 2013, Rihanna was also in the same predicament as Gomez after she was kicked out of the Grand Mosque when she held an impromptu photo shoot in the premises. Workers at the Grand Mosque said Rihanna’s actions had not been in keeping with the sanctity of the site.

Prior to her trip to Abu Dhabi, Selena Gomez’s ex-boyfriend, Justin Bieber, has been spotted several times at Hailey Baldwin’s side, which led to speculation that the two are now a couple. Selena and Justin broke up after a huge fight in St. Maarten last October.

Mosque controversy aside, there are rumors that Gomez’s trip to Dubai managed to get her mind off Bieber.

An insider for Hollywood Life says, “Selena is having the time of her life in Dubai. She’s been spending time with Harith Bukhash, who has been spoiling her and treating her like an absolute princess. It’s like, Justin Bieber who?”

The insider added, “Harith treated Selena and a group of friends to dinner at Zuma, a popular Japanese restaurant in Dubai the other night (Dec. 28). Selena is loving all the attention and is so grateful that her friends convinced her to go to Dubai.”
