DJ Khaled faced a healthy amount of backlash after he posted a video of bikini-clad women twerking on the last day of Ramadan.
DJ Khaled is presumably still riding high off the success of his latest album Khaled Khaled which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 last week. But his recent decision to post a video of bikini-clad women twerking during the holy month of Ramadan isnt sitting right with the Muslim community. The video arrived via Instagram on Wednesday (May 12), the last day of Ramadan. In the clip apparently from a music video shoot for Body In Motion featuring Lil Baby the camera seems to focus on one woman near Khaled whos twerking with a bottle on top of her rear. He wrote in the caption, Getting a lot calls and the fans asking where the #BODYANDMOTION video at , @josephkahn send me the video get to @samlecca . Im thinking to let go SOON , its on @josephkahn thoe send that ! #KHALEDKHALED #1 album in the country! LETS GO ! Oh yeah #IDIDIT VIDEO ALMOST DONE AS WELL !!!! View this post on Instagram A post shared by DJ KHALED (@djkhaled) Ramadan is observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting, prayer, reflection and community. Both men and women are recommended to dress conservatively, meaning no tight or revealing clothing. Considering the women are half-naked, their attire clearly doesnt fall under those guidelines. The backlash was swift and comments such as Yo khaled its Ramadan, Its Ramadan my friend think you forgot and Dont you got a wife dawg started pouring in. Another commenter was more direct and wrote, Youre not following your religion very well. Some even vowed to stop following DJ Khaledon Instagram, writing, Its the last of Ramadan. And al Aqsa was attacked again. This is what you post. Unfollowing you.
