The 7 Funniest Reactions to the Mohamed Salah Image Rights Scandal

-

Less than 24 hours ago, hashtags in support of Mohamed Salah began trending on social media. The support came after WE, a subsidiary of Telecom Egypt, used Salah’s image on the national team’s official plane without his consent.

Salah currently has a contract with Vodafone, so his image cannot be used by a competing provider. This has put Salah in a position that he had nothing to do with, and currently a fine of 100 million Egyptian pounds is being thrown around. While some claim that Salah should pay the fine, others believe the payment should come from the Egyptian Football Federation and/or WE. The support of The Egyptian King was quick to arise, but as with most things, we were able to make fun of a bad situation. Here are some of the funniest social media posts helping Egyptians (and hopefully Salah as well) smile through the ordeal.
