this was some grade-A white woman bullshit
that entire show was grade-A white woman bullshit tbh
this movie should have just been called “Ugly Americans” though
i think the most histerically hypocritical issue with this bullshit film is that they were actually able to travel to Dubai (right?? am i wrong about the place) AND film the movie AND get actors to act in it—-but then spent half the movie talking shit about how conservative and backward and repressive the culture is? THEN HOW GOES YOU FILMING THAT SHIT.
fucking what? only the enlightened/poor folks showed up to play repressed Brown people in your movie.
As someone who grew up in the UAE (mostly in Dubai but I visited Abu Dhabi several times), this shit is not only racist and disrespectful, it’s wildly exaggerated. Dubai and Abu Dhabi are incredibly cosmopolitan, and if some fool ass white woman dropped her condoms and started going off, most Emirati folk (btw, the UAE is almost 90% expatriate populate, so most of the populance isn’t wearing burqas or dishdashas) would just laugh.
Oh, and btw, in the UAE you can buy condoms in the damn store same as the USA.
