Amber criticized after visiting mosques
However, several Twitter users were furious after realizing that she did not dress appropriately because she was not wearing a bra.
“OMG i live in an Arab country i can tell you for a fact you and her are wrong. Muslims who don’t even know amber disagree with the way she dressed for a mosque visit. The only ones who think its ok are this ‘feminists’ who support an abuser,” one wrote.
“When you visit a religious building it is important to be conservative when interpreting their culture and customs. You weren’t wearing the scarf correctly covering your haor [sic], your nipples were visible through your top, you photographed and filmed people in worship, you” another Twitter user opined.
“Partner also openly criticised the womens section and filmed a woman praying. Its also considered rude to point in Turkey which you also did. Now if someone turkish or muslim does different its their religion and their culture they can do what they like. As visitors we respect.”
