Amr Adib’s Tweet
“Of course, if I put on a Saudi top and visited anything in the kingdom, the world would turn around and I would hear accusations of cooperation and sales. As for our brother Benzema, this is completely normal. No one from outside or from his country said this. To be honest, it’s a strange situation these two days, in general, it’s also an opportunity to wear a camouflage top the next day, but I will go to the Kingdom in comfort… rice.twitter.com/IP26BhcDaG
