Mock election poster calls on Iranians to elect Snoop Dogg as president

DUBAI: US rapper Snoop Dogg this week shared an image seemingly shot on the streets of Iran in which his face has been superimposed onto an election poster.
“For our darling Iran, engineer Snoop Dogg,” the Photoshopped poster reads.
The rapper shared the image on his Twitter and Instagram accounts with the caption “my cousin In the Middle East.”
Iran is gearing up for its 12th presidential election, to be held on May 19.

It seems that someone, however, has a sense of humor and is calling on the public to vote for “engineer” Snoop Dogg, a typically respected profession in Iran.
Social media users are laughing about the post, with one writing “I should vote you man,” in the comments section.
Snoop Dogg’s post has received more than 100,000 likes on Instagram and more than 1,000 retweets as of Wednesday.
With the Iranian presidential election only days away, both sides – the reformist camp and the hard-liners — have launched a social media free-for-all unprecedented in Iranian political history.
However, it seems Snoop Dogg’s social media post may trigger the most laughs.

‘Nut rage’ sisters leave Korean Air, father apologizes

  • One of the daughters, Cho Hyun-min, a senior vice president at the airline, is under investigation by police
  • Heather Cho, made global headlines in 2014 when she ordered a Korean Air plane to return to its gate at a New York airport because she was angry over the way she had been served nuts in first class

SEOUL: Korean Air Lines Co. Ltd. Chairman Cho Yang-ho apologized on Sunday for the behavior of his two daughters and said they would immediately step down from their positions at the company.
One of the daughters, Cho Hyun-min, a senior vice president at the airline, is under investigation by police for suspected assault for allegedly throwing water at an attendee of a business meeting.
Her older sister, Heather Cho, made global headlines in 2014 when she ordered a Korean Air plane to return to its gate at a New York airport because she was angry over the way she had been served nuts in first class. She was jailed and returned to work as an executive of Korean Air’s hotel affiliate in March.
Chairman Cho said the company would “turn over a new leaf” with stronger management led by its board.
“As chairman of Korean Air as well as a father, I am terribly sorry for my daughter’s misstep. Everything is my responsibility and fault,” he said in a statement.
