Fans react to Mohamad Ramadan’s latest fleet of luxurious cars

CAIRO: Once again, Egyptian star Mohamad Ramadan sparked controversy when he posted on Saturday his fleet of luxurious cars on Instagram.
The actor shared a video of an orange McLaren 720S sports car, a red Ferrari 458 and a blue Lamborghini Aventador parked in his home.
“May God protect us from all evil on the roads, and grant my fans with better ones,” he captioned his video with this message.


Though he prayed for his fans to obtain better cars, many did not take kindly to the video he posted. A wave of mixed reactions on his account had comments ranging form those who were delighted for the actor, to those who envy him.
About a year ago, he stirred controversy when he shared a photo of a Lamborghini alongside a Rolls Royce he had purchased.
At the time, he explained his act by saying: “I like to share all my good moments with my fans.”
Ramadan is famous for his box office thriller films and record-breaking television series, usually aired during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

Royals Harry and Meghan go barefoot on Bondi

  • Pre-prepared signs screaming “G’day Harry and Meghan” greeted the royal couple

SYDNEY: British royals Harry and Meghan kicked off their shoes and donned tropical garlands Friday, as they hit Sydney’s famed Bondi beach for the latest stop on their Australian tour.
Expectant Meghan donned a summer dress, putting aside her high heels, while Harry ditched his usual suit for chinos as the couple lapped up cheers from Australian fans and enjoyed Bondi’s surf.
Despite morning fog, the pair met local surfers enjoying winter swells and sat down on the sand for a long chat with leaders of the OneWave group, which focuses on helping people improve mental health by getting outdoors.
Pre-prepared signs screaming “G’day Harry and Meghan” greeted the royal couple, who have received a warm welcome from fans throughout the start of their 16-day pacific tour.
While half of Australians oppose having British monarchs as head of state, and the vast majority of Australians have carried on with business as usual during the visit, there has been sizable support for the celebrity couple at every stop.
News that the Duchess of Sussex is pregnant has only made the crowds swell.
Amid a torrent of fawning press coverage declaring Meghan the “Queen of hugs” and the prince receiving “buckets of love,” the Australian Republican Movement is putting on a brave face.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very welcome visitors” the group said at the start of the trip, pointedly adding that “Australians of all ages know the difference between this wonderful event and the questions of our nation’s identity and future.”
In a 1999 referendum, 55 percent of Australians voted against replacing Queen Elizabeth II as head of state, although polls indicate support for republicanism has grown since then.
The opposition Labor party has promised a plebiscite on the issue if it wins a general election expected in 2019.
