Dubai has seen gender reveals of all levels, from chill backyard brunches to UAE-based Syrian influencers Anas and Asala Marwah having their baby’s gender illuminated on the Burj Khalifa!

The skyscraper-studded city is no stranger to OTT celebrations, however, footage shared of the latest most extravagant gender reveal shows a live tiger popping balloons to spill the gender of the baby (revealed to be a baby girl) is receiving flak on social media.

Social media users were left triggered by the exploitive nature in which the live animal was being used for a social media stunt. The mom-to-be who originally uploaded the video on her Instagram soon took it down after receiving immense backlash over the ‘wild’ video.

Lovin Dubai shared the video on socials and the comments under the post expressed strong sentiments

Garnering over 320k views and 1k comments, the video drew heavy criticism from concerned cybersurfers.
