Saudi social media star under fire for bragging about her wealth

Saudi social media celebrity Afnan Al Batel has come under fire for “bragging” about her wealth on social media.

now-viral hashtag launched on Twitter earlier this week is calling on people to block the star on social media platforms, accusing her of showing off her possessions.

Many are also attacking Al Batel for constantly posting adverts encouraging people to buy “overpriced” products.

The hashtag trended for hours on Wednesday and continues to make the rounds online.

It sparked a heated debate among users, many of whom deemed the behavior of rich and famous Arab social media influencers “destructive to youth” and “unacceptable.”

The influencer’s videos angered many…

شوف التفاخر بالبذخ الفاحش ملابس بمليون ريال !! صراحة الله يعين اللي يتابع هذي كيف ماجته جلطة للحين 👇🏻

“She’s showing off that she bought clothes for over a million riyals!!”  

Who launched a Twitter campaign labelling Al Batel a “show off”

“One of Al Batel’s negative effects on society.”

And criticized her for negatively influencing followers

الأولاد والبنات صارو يتذمرون و يشمئزون من حياتهم يفكرون الحياة كلها طلعات وسفريات وماركات متابعتهم لهم خطر فادح

“Boys and girls complain about their realities and hate the lives they have because they’ve come to believe that life is all about luxurious outings, first-class travel, and brands.” 

“There has to be a campaign that shows our sons and daughters what real life is all about”

ياليت يكون فيه حملة توعية لابناءنا وبناتنا بالحياة الحقيقة وليست حياة القشور التي يعيشها هؤلاء المدلسون

“Life is nothing like the vain life these people lead and portray.”

Many criticized the ads posted by the star

رابعا الي تفكر تعلن تتحرى بكل ذمه وضمير قبل تعرض لنا شي احنا في غنى عن اهدار وقتنا ومالنا عليه بدون مصداقية💔

“Anyone who wants to advertise something must do that with integrity, they should try the products they ask people to go buy.”

“I bet you that they’ve never tried any of the products they advertised”

اتحدى لو منتج واحد من الي اعلنوا عنه انهم قد جربوه!!! مستحيييلللل

Al Batel isn’t the only influencer who’s under fire…

Several other popular social media stars are now being targeted by the social media campaign.

Some raised this point

“You’re the ones who made them famous, you’re also the ones who can shut them down. It’s all up to you.”

Not everyone attacked Al Batel though…

بغض النظر عن الأعمال بالخفاء مايعطي المبرر تعرض الفلوس في سنابها انا مالي شغل بفلوسها وبسيارتها وبيتها كل اللي يهمني تقدم محتوى يخدم ديني ومجتمع ماهي الفائدة من متابعة حياتها وكسر الطموح لدى بناتنا وجعلها قدوة لأشياء تافه مالها قيمة تشغيل العقل مهم

يضل حسابها ويومياتها هي حره اش تعرض فيها وعموما السناب ماهو برنامج تعليمي او تربوي يضل البرنامج بكبره تافه اللي خايف على اولاده لا يحمله وبس

“It’s her account and her daily life, she’s free to post anything she wants on there. People who are worried over their children viewing things like this should simply not download social media apps.” 

Some tweeps defended her

قال تعالى ” إن المبذرين كانوا إخوان الشياطين ” تشتري ملابس بمليون ريال وماتلبسيها إلا لبسه أو لبستين ؟!

صح اهي اسرفت بس ما لكم دخل فيها، انصحوها بس تشهر فيها عيب وبعدين الفلوس فلوسها ليه معصب تشب فيها ان شاءالله انتو مالكم دخل

“It’s right that she is opulent but you have nothing to do with her. It’s her money and she’s free to spend it the way she wants to. It’s unacceptable to defame her this way.”
