Huda Beauty is taking heat online for sharing a post supporting the Pride movement.

The heat is on Twitter, where some netizens are cancelling the beauty mogul after she posted in support of the LGBTQIA+ movement to her 50 Million strong audience.

Huda wished her followers a happy pride, and reminded people to celebrate and uplift love in all its forms

Comments on the post have been turned off, and Huda added her house rules

She said her page has zero-tolerance policy toward anything hateful, abusive, harassing, indecent, discriminatory or profane and will be deleted.

But since then, people jumped to Twitter to share their gripes with the post

LGBTQ+ activity is punishable by law here in the UAE. Posting about it is not. But supporting the controversial movement has disappointed some followers who do not share her opinion.

Some said posting this is simply unacceptable

While others support the beauty queen and see no issue with her post

The story was covered by Smashi Tv here

The UAE is a Muslim country and all acts outside of a heterosexual relationship are considered criminal

But countries which traditionally support pride, are quietly showing their support in the UAE.

‘Pride Month’ is celebrated in the US to celebrate the LGBTQIA+ movement and other parts of the world follow to host events to celebrate. Last year, for the first time in the UAE, the UK, the US and Spanish embassies raised pride flags.

Consular officers from the respective embassies were seen posing beside the rainbow flag, which is a symbol of the LGBTQ+ community.

And the second year running, on June 1, the USA embassy in UAE shared a post supporting pride which was also met with a mixed response.
