Lebanese Youth takes Advantage of Jackie Chamoun's Case to get Naked

BEIRUT - Lebanese presenter Joe Maalouf steals the Lebanese Audience with his new exciting show "7ki Jelis". His show is dedicated to uncovering truths through investigation about illegal, erroneous, immoral events or organisations in Lebanon. During his show, Maalouf discussed Jackie Chamoun's case, and here is the story:

Lebanese beloved skier Jackie Chamoun shot some nudes three years ago; after a while Al-Jadeed Television published the news and labeled it as "scandal".Then, our sport minister got offended, and started investigating her case in order to prevent "harming Lebanon’s reputation and international participation". Joe Maalouf stood up with Jackie during his show, along with 81% of all the Lebanese people. I personally stood up with her, but I didn't give her any importance as there are many profoundly immoral and malevolent worse cases in Lebanon, such as:

  • Dog fights
  • Abuse and murder of women
  • Men beating their wives to death (and walking free)
  • Outdated Lebanese law
  • Children passing away at hospital doors 
  • Al-Mekdad announcing a live kidnapping on LBC
  • Corruption being the daily habbit of every minister
  • Bombs happening every two weeks
  • And so on...

Guess which case got the Lebanese people attention? Jackie Chamoun's case - outrageous!

Campaign attracted 17K Lebanese People

To support Ms. Chamoun, many of our Lebanese people got undressed under #stripForJackie hashtag campaign. They even started a webpage "I am not naked!" and created "I am not naked!" events (where they all party naked to support Jackie). All this effort and work done for someone who doesn't even care, as Chamoun clarified her position instantly and said, “Yes, I did photos for an Austrian ski calendar with other professional athletes three years ago. The photos of the photo shoot are not like the actual images that are now circulating on the net. The video and photos that you are now seeing are part of the making of.” She's okay with that, and she moved on, and she doesn't even care about our culture.

But why are the Lebanese youth so obsessed with Jackie? Don't they ever walk in Hamra's street? Don't they notice the hungry, abused kids there? Don't they know how many kids die on hospital doors? Don't they know Tripoli is a live version of Call of Duty meets Counter Strike? Do they know Al-Assir and his hateful speeches are broadcasted live on TV? Don't they know Al-Mekdad called LBC and announced a live kidnapping? Why did they take notice of Jackie and not other worse cases in Lebanon? Why not campaign for the poor people who die everyday on the streets? Why not campaign for the bombing, abuse, murder, rape of women? Why not campaign for the Lebanese outdated law that puts homosexuals in jail? I'll tell you why, because they don't give two shits about Jackie. They just found a reason to post nudes pictures about themselves, get some attention and let go of their privacy. Welcome to our culture! My generation is a generation that craves attention, make loud and inappropriate appearances, exaggerate their behaviors and emotions, and crave stimulation. My generation is one that is addicted to the dopamine-related urges of attention. My generation gets naked for a successful Lebanese skier (who barely knows what is the capital of Lebanon), yet they meet hundreds of poor KIDS in the street and ignore them! In fact, my generation just wanted to get naked and hijack their reward system with some chemical reactions of attention.

Welcome to Lebanon!
