Following the scoop mentality, Al Jadeed TV published an article and later on a video about Lebanese Athlete Jackie Chamoun who is currently representing Lebanon in Sotchi winter olympics.
The beautiful, sexy and with amazing athlete body Jackie Chamoun, took part in a photo-shoot 2 years ago for an international magazine. Al Jadeed published both article and video under the title: “فضيحة- بطلات لبنان بالتزلج نجوم تعرٍ!” , (Scandal, Lebanese Skiing Champions are stars of nudity), yes it is Al Jadeed, not a cheap scandalous magazine!
Knowing Lebanon, and the silly patriarchal Lebanese people, they joined Al Jadeed in shaming Jackie for the photos and started to attack her personally, but to top it all, Caretaker Youth and Sports Minister Faisal karami telephoned on Tuesday the Lebanese Olympic Committee president Jean Hammam, and asked him to launch an investigation into the case of Lebanese Alpine Skier Jackie Chamoun. Yes, I am not kidding! The minister is scared on the reputation of Lebanon, you know, Lebanon the country where:
- Men beat their wives to death (and walk free)
- Armed Militia roam the roads killing on identity
- Tripoli is a live version of Red Alert meets Counter Strike
- Ministers, and Deputies spends years in power with no work done
- Corruption is the daily bread of every official
- Kids die on hospital doors
- Artist’s work is censored
- Al Assir appears on Prime Time TV and his hateful speeches are broadcasted lived.
- Freedom of speech is an illusion
- Ministry of tourism ads are borderline erotic
Jackie’s boobs are the national security risk, the bad image of the country and the blow that will break Lebanon’s back, Out-fucking-rageous!! Not to forget the fucking patriarchal attitude of wanting to control Jackie’s body and punish it by this investigation! I don’t recall Minister Karami, investigating the corrupted Football player or the corrupted Basketball league! Or maybe because there is no boobs involved??
What if, Al Jadeed instead of shaming Jackie, praised her, gave her prime time for her accomplishements and not for her boobs? What would have really happened? They might have lost the “Scandal” element, but for sure they would have set the record straight when it comes to ethical media, not backward patriarchal media! -Btw, I think LBC will feature Jackie in her intro tonight –
Later on, Jackie apologized in a Facebook message, I honestly think she shouldn’t have, she didn’t do anything wrong and we all are proud of her and her accomplishment and she is free to do whatever she wants with her body! It is her body! But to add insult to injury, Al Jadeed, took her apology and made another story out of it, you know transparency and whatnot bullshit media!
The scandal is not the topless photos of Jackie Chamoun, the real scandal is the low media standards, the patriarchal dinosaur-ish mentality, and sick moral compass that makes a photo that partially show some boobs a threat on Lebanon amazing image!
Again, this is the third time I end a post like this, but there is no hope for this country!! No hope what so ever!
