The girl that is 12-year-old using a little wedding gown and veil and caked in makeup, is observed awkwardly posing for photographs aided by the guy – that is at the least four years her senior – for a picturesque waterfront promenade in Beirut, Lebanon.
Passers-by could be heard asking the guy whom the pre-teen is and him proudly announcing ttheir woman is his bride and her parents provided them approval.
Some respond with anger while other people horrifyingly congratulate him when you look at the movie which was seen almost two million times on YouTube.
One woman, whom reveals she’s got a child the exact same age, stated: “I happened to be running but my legs froze once I saw her.”
And also as a audience grows round the few, another shouts: “Her parents are crooks.”
The guy ended up being gladly posing because of the young girl dressed in a marriage dress
Some passersby congratulated the ‘couple’
Luckily when it comes to girl, the scene just isn’t genuine and ended up being put up by anti gender-based physical violence charity KAFA Violence and Exploitation, Lebanon, as an element of its us (UN) supported campaign to prevent youngster wedding in the united kingdom.
The campaign, launched within the romantic days celebration week-end, aims to emphasize exactly just how even though this couple are actors, the situation is really a typical reality for many. [···]
