Most of you have seen by now the video of the Snake/Scorpion Eating Saudi “Arab Talent” called Ahmed Al Dousary that I shared earlier today. His act on the popular show “Arabs Got Talent” has caused outrage and the fact that he was allowed into the semi-finals made things even worse.
Luckily though, one of the Arabs Got Talent judges Ali Jaber condemned his act and stated that Ahmed Al Dousary won’t be allowed to repeat any animal act in the semi finals. To be honest, I think he should have stopped the guy before as the judges looked like they were enjoying the show and the harm is done now, but the good news is that Ahmed Al Dousary won’t be allowed to abuse further animals (at least not on the Arabs Got Talent show).
Here’s what Ali Jaber said:
“Dear Mouin, to answer your question, of course I am against animal cruelty and have always voted out all acts of violence, self-mutilation and animal abuse. I also believe AGT is not the platform to showcase these acts, however, these acts are present in our society and televisions’ role is to expose them and explain why and how wrong they are. We have already edited out the act from our online catch up service and won’t allow the contestant to repeat any animal act in the semi finals.”
