Minister of Justice Salim Jreissati banned singer Myriam Klink’s latest music video since it’s seen as provocative. A press statement from Jreissati’s office announced that displaying, distributing, or circulating the music video online was strictly prohibited. Violating the decision will result in a LL50 million ($33,105) penalty. Judge Roland Chartouni later on Saturday issued the same ruling, the National News Agency reported. Myriam Klink’s video was banned due to its sexual explicitness and its inclusion of a child as a form of “exploitation.” The controversial pop singer’s latest video for her new song, “Goal,” went viral overnight on Facebook and YouTube. The video was uploaded to Youtube by a random user and can be watched here (until it is taken down):
