Lebanon’s justice minister has just issued a total ban on a pop star’s “indecent” music video. Released this week, the viral video features Myriam Klink – a controversial Lebanese pop singer, model and unlikely presidential nominee – and Lebanese singer Jad Khalife. Information Minister Melhem Riachy and Justice Minister Salim Jreissati met to discuss the video and agree on the ban. Judge Roland Chartouni issued the same ruling on the video.
The ministers and the judge cited concerns over the sexually explicit nature of the clip as well as the presence of a young child, which they referred to as “exploitation.”
