Miss Israel and Miss Lebanon became the cause of an international incident when they took a selfie together. This might seem shocking but when it comes to countries like Israel and Lebanon it’s normal.
The two women are competing in the upcoming Miss Universe Pageant and after Miss Israel Doron Matalon posted the picture of the two together with Miss Japan and Miss Slovenia online last week. (See the picture below)
This put Miss Lebanon Saly Greige in a hot water in her homeland in and attempt to cool things down she posted her own version … with Matalon cropped out.
Greige said she was very cautious to avoid being photographed with Miss Israel and claims that Matalon in essence photobombed her.
She wrote, “I was having a photo with Miss Japan, Miss Slovenia, suddenly Miss Israel jumped in and took a selfie, and uploaded it on her social media.”
Matalon responded to the cropping, writing, “It doesn’t surprise me, but it still makes me sad. Too bad you can not put the hostility out of the game, only for three weeks of an experience of a lifetime.”
