Gigi Gorgeous Breaks Silence After Being Detained in Dubai

Gigi Gorgeous has taken to her Instagram account to reveal she is “safe and sound” after being detained at the Dubai airport for being transgender.

The 24-year-old model and social media influencer was held for over five hours and her friend Nats Getty came to her rescue.

“After being detained and held at the Dubai airport for over 5 hours, this was the moment my baby came to rescue me. Yesterday was one of the scariest moments of my entire life and I wouldn’t wish it upon anyone. How you can be denied entry somewhere just because of who you are is seriously disgusting and also very scary. This further proves the need for CHANGE. I am now on my way to somewhere much more accepting. Safe and sound and happy. I love you guys,” Gigi captioned the below photo.

    Sorry, but you pretty much have to be out of touch to not know that Arab nations have serious issues with LGBT people. She’s an idiot for putting herself in that position.

    No research or forethought before hopping on a plane to a muslim country? Use common sense and be safe people.

    Dubai and UAE is known for being more “western” and “relaxed” about certain things. They definitely worship money over there, it seems. I can see how she’d think it’d be okay. But as a muslim female myself, I still wouldn’t go over there.

    Either she is extremely ignorant or this was all a PR stunt. She is lucky she didn’t end up in jail for a year or two.

    That’s why we need Trump. I do not want to die as a gay guy. I don’t want women to be oppressed. Atheists to be killed and christians looked upon as third class citizens.

    We don’t need an increase of people with this ideology. Imagine if 40% of US was muslim, practically half the representatives.

    Might be a good idea to stay out of countries that don’t agree with your lifestyle. Check it out before you hop on the plane. They aren’t going to change just because you bat your false eyelashes at them.
