A Kuwaiti television presenter was in for a shock when he shared a picture of an ultrasound showing the foetus of his unborn baby and drew flak on social media. According to reports in Arab News, the presenter shared a photo of himself with his wife and holding the image of their baby's ultrasound, reflecting the soon-to-be parents' happiness.
But, the picture has been widely criticised on Twitter with several angry netizens bashing the young couple for 'sharing private family photos'. Some wrote 'it was shameful' and 'inconsistent with Kuwaiti traditions' to share the photo.
However, there were some who praised the picture where the presenter is putting his arms around his pregnant wife dressed in a headscarf and defended on Twitter by regarding it as 'personal freedom' adding that 'it's a beautiful photo'. One Twitter user wrote, "If those in the picture were Westerners, people would've said they are cute."
