Scandal: Sayidaty Magazine photoshops a cross from Najwa Karam

Sayidati magazine published a photo of a Lebanese pop-star singer Najwa Karam on its Twitter account.

The photo, celebrating her latest album ‘Menni Elak’,  features Karam sitting  in a black outfit, gently touching her hair.

On the original phone she is also wearing a necklace with a cross, that went surprisingly missing in Sayidati’s version.

The uncomfortable difference was spotted by social media users that shared their angry reaction.

Sayidati later issued an apology, saying the cross was photoshopped by one of its employers, who individually took this decision, calling it ‘an unintentional mistake’. The publication stressed its respect to all religions and thanked those who pointed out to the mistake. It is not mentioned what happened to the employee in question.

Here is the full story in pictures:

The announcement below of Karam’s new album appeared on Sayidati’s official Twitter account.
