Blizerian at the Dubai World Trade Center

Known for his ‘playboy’ lifestyle that he often showcases on social media, Dan Blizerian is often found in the company of several women. He has been accused of objectifying and “normalising women as background rather than actual human beings.”

The group was also at the Dubai World Trade Center a week ago for the Dubai World Vape Show. They stayed in the Burj Al Arab, where the seemingly offensive video was shot.

The debate

Comparisons are being drawn between Blizerian’s video and two other recent incidents that were highlighted for being offensive- the ban on Buzz Lightyear in UAE cinema for intimacy between the same sex, and beauty mogul Huda Beauty’s Instagram post in support of Pride Month.

The common sentiment is that they must all be held to the same standards of censorship.
