YouTuber duo Anas Marwah and Asala Maleh caught the public’s attention after they rented the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa, in Dubai for a very special occasion.
The lovebirds did it for one specific purpose – to reveal the gender of their second child! The couple, who have been married since 2017, posted a clip of their gender reveal party held at the tower on their joint YouTube channel, “Anasala Family”.
The lavish party, which reportedly cost the influencers a whopping amount of RM380,000, was complete with a dramatic countdown. After that, people were able to witness the building became emblazoned in blue, along with a message, “It’s a boy,” written in English.
Burj Khalifa’s official website stated, “The shocking news could not have been greater than this as the tallest building in the world lit up to reveal the greatest gender exposure ever made! Congrats to the couple.”
So, what do netizens have to say about this? Well, most of them left dividing remarks in reacting to their extravagant effort.
Many showered the couple with well wishes, but there were also some who weren’t really keen with the lavish display. Many of them slammed the couple for spending so much cash while their home country of Syria is currently in turmoil. Some even labelled the gender-reveal party as something “disgusting” and “nauseating ridiculousness”.
Syrians are displaced internally, displaced externally, in squalid camps and under trees, hungry, in need of aid, food, baby milk and medical supplies and treatment and the son of former Syrian Coalition member spends $95,000 on a gender reveal party. Disgustingly shameful. https://t.co/r1aXZkyoUk
