Amid The Protests One Lebanese Woman Is Going Viral Because ‘She Can’t Afford Botox And Fillers’
Today marks the third day of protests in Lebanon.
Hundreds of thousands of residents have taken to the streets to vent against the government and how its dealing with the country’s worsening economic crisis.
The demonstrations come just two days after the worst forest fires hit Lebanon. And though people are outraged at proposed tax hikes, the protestors have remained thoroughly optimistic… And if you’ve seen some of the videos that are going viral, you’ll admit they are uniquely Lebanese.
Last night, DJs played a street-set from a balcony, groups of people have been seeing doing dabke in the streets and one woman has taken a moment to shame the government because she ‘can’t afford fillers’.
All in jokes, of course.
“Shame on the government for letting his people starve. Look at my lips, I can’t even get botox filler, look at my wrinkles”
The comments stan her take on the controversial subject with one joining in…
“I can’t even afford nail polish”
It must be noted that there have been clashes between police and residents and as the country enters its third day of protests, we hope everyone remains safe
Definitely biggest turnout yet since this all started. #Beirut #Lebanon#لبنان#لبنان_ينتفض pic.twitter.com/wgEWRtjgdD
