The man made a name for himself by running in several elections and mocking the Lebanese political establishment (photo above), before falling into oblivion. He even tried his luck with a “provocative” song and video clip.
Until the popular movement came along and gave him a great opportunity to revive his lost fame.
In his latest video, Hachach makes fun of an alleged sexual assault reported by several media. This assault allegedly happened during one of the movement’s protests.
Sexual assault is no laughing matter. Especially in a country where domestic and sexual violence are commonplace, and where Lebanese women are, in many ways, still treated as second-class citizen.
Rather than mocking the alleged assault – or the news outlets that reported it – it would be a good idea to investigate it, check its veracity and if proven true, make sure it never happens again.
Sexism represents, along with corruption, what's deeply wrong in Lebanon.
I wonder what Lebanese women think of this video, especially those who are an integral part of the movement.
Ladies, it’s time to speak out.
(Pierre Hachach has since deleted the video)
