Saudi YouTube stars call for gays to be executed in ‘the most horrific ways possible’

Popular Saudi Arabian YouTubers posted a shockingly homophobic video to YouTube – which was removed for hate speech.

The clip was uploaded by Fe2aFala – popular Arabic vloggers who have more than 500,000 subscribers, racking up over 45 million views

In a shocking video uploaded to the video site, the young men rant about “Deviant marriage in Riyadh”, apparently after a local raid of a ceremonial gay wedding.

They added: “We would like to thank the police for beating their asses.”

The vloggers play a clip appearing to show two “deviants” getting married – accompanied by an on-screen emoji poo.

The men continue to insist that gays are “disgusting and nasty”, asking Allah to send his “godly wrath” upon them.

The men then discuss whether gays are “mentally ill” and needing a “cure” – or whether they are “animals” who need to be “executed in the most horrific ways”.

After outcry, YouTube took action to pull the video, with a message now explaining: “This video has been removed for violating YouTube’s policy on hate speech.”

An LGBT rights campaigner said: “I translated this video from the Saudi Arabian YouTube channel Fe2aFala for the English-speaking audience to raise awareness against Fe2aFala’s recent video dealing about promoting the killing and abusing of gay and transgender people, the issue has aroused after the unorganized gay marriage that happened recently in Saudi Arabia.”
