I had to miss last Saturday’s episode of “El-Hakika” [The Truth] on Dream TV 2 and I did not know what Wael Al Abrashi was discussing nor the guests he was hosting. I asked my mom who did not watch the whole episode except for few minutes then she turned the channel.She told me that Al Abrashi hosted a group of young people with very strange and ugly hair cut and dark clothes,she did not remember what they were speaking about and I forgot to follow the matter,there was a sand storm which seemed to me much more interesting then.
But then I found Masrawy.com is speaking about that episode in some exclusive coverage which I do not understand that exclusive part in it !!
I found out that they were speaking the Emo fans in the Egyptian society and how Wael Al Abrashi considered this a very alarming phenomena in our society.
With my all respect I do not like Emo and I feel sorry for its fans who need to see some shrink “I do not insult them but those boys and gals need some attention and already they are seeking it with their looks and behavior” but Wael Al Abrashi needs to focus on much important issue in our society as he used to do.
The Emo fans are not the new Satanists and not everyone wears black clothes will be a Satanist for God sake !! Yes they need some guidance but not to be considered the new freak show in the town for boys and gals go wild and to be arrested by the police because they wear black clothes and wear dark make up !!
Already I do not consider them as danger on the society for God sake ,look to their existence in the facebook .There are more than 9 active Emo groups in the Facebook from Egypt. The membership starts as low as to 13 members up to 604 members. Some of these groups are by invitation , I think that the episode impact made the admins think in making it private. The episode was a direct accusation to them after all.
Most of the Emo fans in Egypt are more like Emo punk music fans , it is not a matter of life style here in our society , it will be very hard to adopt the Emo lifestyle in Egypt.
There is a huge misunderstanding I am afraid , I do not know if it is deliberate or not
