A video clip circulated on social networking sites documenting the assault by a group of young men, the well-known Saudi fashion model and blogger, Ziyad Al-Misfir, sparked widespread repercussions in Saudi Arabia.
And a video has spread on social media since September 3, showing Al-Musafir, who is one of the most prominent fashion models in Saudi Arabia, trying to escape from young men who mocked him and assaulted him in a public place in a street in the Saudi capital Riyadh, where they threw what was in their hands .
Ziad Al-Misfir appears in the rolling clip, wearing clothes similar to women’s clothes, in addition to his famous appearance with his long hair knotted back, which caused people to mock him while walking in a public place, after they circled around him, and one of them pulled him by his hair.
One of those accompanying the Saudi model tried to defend him, but the young men continued to follow him, which sparked widespread criticism by activists on social networking sites who described what happened as racism.

We are all human!
Unfortunately there are many people
Mocked people with skin
Everyone has freedom of expression, but
Without infringing on the person and making fun of him
“No to racism!” We in a sophisticated and civilized society do not allow modernity.

The position that Ziad Al-Misfir has been exposed to is defeated. I am against racism in all its forms. The salvation of every free person with his own will be like us who bully you!
Who zen you are men above his head! I do not condemn your literature or principles!
The Muslim who has an iota of faith does not harm an ant and what bullying and disgust is
I seek refuge in God from ignorance and ignorance sincerity. pic.twitter.com/c9YzdBix5C
