Egyptian YouTuber under fire for asking people to burn Kuwaiti flag for money

Mohamed Reda, an Egyptian YouTuber, asked passersby to burn the Kuwaiti flag for $500 as part of a ‘challenge’, but no one actually burned the flag.

Kuwaiti authorities condemned the clip, which Reda has now apologised for.

Kuwait and Egypt were engaged in a ‘rift’, as Egyptian expats were the subject of mistreatment amid the coronavirus outbreak.
