MDL Beast Festival in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
Emily Ratajkowski turns down Saudi Arabia appearance, cites human rights concerns
Emily Ratajkowski recently turned down a paid appearance in Saudi Arabia in an effort to shed light on the human rights violations occurring in the Middle East.
Ratajkowski, 28, revealed that she recently refused a “six-figure” paycheck to appear at the MDL Beast Festival in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia — citing her support on many political causes that Saudi Arabia traditionally opposes.
“It is very important to me to make clear my support for the rights of women, the LGBTQ community, freedom of expression and the right to a free press,” the model told fashion Instagram page, Diet Prada. “I hope coming forward on this brings more attention to the injustices happening there.”
The festival featured a stacked guest list including Irina Shayk, Luka Sabbat, Ryan Phillippe, Sofia Richie and Winnie Harlow. Other guests included Alessandra Ambrosio, Armie Hammer and Joan Smalls. – Source
