Egyptian actress, Riham Abdel Ghafour trended on the top-trending searches on Google, after apologizing for unintentionally upsetting the residents of Zamalek district, with her latest statements.
On Saturday, Abdel Ghafour apologized on Facebook to Zamalek residents, after she spoke in her latest interview about the novel “Quarter Gram” by Essam Youssef and how she knew some people, similar to those in the novel, who lived in the area and became drug-addicted.
The statement caused offense to some of the district residents, who expressed their rage on her social media accounts.
The actress took the platform to address the ordeal, noting: ‘I spoke in good faith in a program about knowing some people close to me in Zamalek at a certain stage, who become addicted and this made me play the role. I did not mean to insult the residents of Zamalek, who I am from and my family still resides there. I apologize if my words were misunderstood, upset or hurt anyone. This was an unintended mistake’.
