Rima Fakih Pole Dancing on Mojo In The Morning Embarrassment for Muslim Community?
Rima Fakih won a pole dancing contest hosted by radio show Mojo In The Morning in 2007; photos of which have surfaced less than 24 hours after she won the Miss USA pageant. As a Muslim, these pole dancing photo are not exactly ones she wants made so public, and for the Muslim community, surely an embarrassment!
In truth, the pole dancing photos are no more scandalous than the “glam” shots the Miss USA contest released of the contestants before the broadcast pageant. Indeed, this photo of Rima Fakih on the pole is actually quite a bit more modest than her fishnet-stocking and bustier photo the pageant used to promote her image. If the Muslim community wasn’t embarrassed by that image, then why should this bother them?
