Kuwaiti actress and TV host Amal Al Awadhi was left shocked after being fired from a Ramadan TV game show she was presenting live on air earlier this week.
The incident reportedly came after a Kuwaiti official called managers at the government-owned channel, demanding that the show is pulled off air.
The reason? Tweets criticizing Al Awadhi's dress during one of the program's live episodes.
While it remains unconfirmed whether the presenter's clothes are all that led to her suspension, tweeps think it's the main reason and are upset over the entire incident.
The actress has since spoken out about her firing on Snapchat
In a series of Snapchat posts, Al Awadhi said she was shocked when she heard someone asking controllers to stop airing her show just two minutes before its live broadcast ended.
"I heard someone saying, 'take Amal Al Awadhi off air now, or I'll shut down the channel," she explained.
She also stated that she's still confused over what caused her suspension, especially given the fact that she hadn't violated any rules noted in her contract.
"Because my show was airing during Ramadan, I was extra cautious about not going against any of our traditions, I took care of what I wore and how I spoke," she added.
Al Awadhi's suspension continues to dominate Kuwaiti Twitter
Some tweeps are all for the decision to fire her
"She deserves to be suspended, her clothes aren't fit for such a program. TV presenters must be modest during Ramadan."
"She 100 percent deserves it"
Others not so much
"The reason behind her firing isn't right and you should reconsider it."
"There's absolutely nothing wrong with what she's wearing"
"Kuwait's TV presenters in 1973"
"What now, are you going to say we were non-believers back then and we just entered Islam?"
Many can't even with the reason behind the decision
"No, I don't think it's because of her dress."
Others are raising this point of view
"The entire Amal Al Awadhi incident and what happened to her live on air is bizarre, vague and would never happen except in regressive, dictatorial countries!!! What age are we living in? Shame on the person who called to report her, shame on those who stopped her show live on air and shame on Kuwait TV."
