It’s confirmed. After the controversy over her intimate photos, Meriem Said has to pack her bags. The Saudi audiovisual group MBC has just kicked out the famous Moroccan host. “She left the band definitively,” a well-informed source told Daily Morocco.
Meriem Said, who was expecting a dismissal, said on Wednesday: “It’s time to say goodbye! I want to thank everyone who has supported me since the beginning.” She also spoke of a “temporary” departure, to maintain the suspense.
Recall that a source of MBC, we had told early January, that the journalist was going to be fired following the leak on social networks compromising photos.
“Meriem Said has tarnished the image of the group, which has led officials to make this decision,” said the source. And add: “Public opinion in Saudi Arabia is angry after the publication of these photos and the Saudi media minister is under pressure. The worst thing about this story is that she did not make any statements after the leak of these photos.”
