“Life Bar” Gemmayze asks guests to dress as maids

The side of Lebanon – we’d like to pretend does not exist… but they can be as elitist and racist as many other cultures…

Hummus For Thought

“This Friday Night, Be Sinkara or Milenga.. Be Soumatra or Domma.. Create your own Maid Costume, Speak Like them and look like a Philippino, Bengladish, Sri Lanka or any maid you want and definitely win 100$ in cash. They do work all the month to get it.. Imitate them and win it in some few comedy moments.”

We really can’t miss an opportunity to be disgusting can we? A friend of mine just sent me an article by The Daily Star showing the following headline:

“Beirut bar cancels event inviting guests to dress as domestic workers”

The Anti-Racism Movement revealed the bar to be “Life Bar” and this is the original description in their Facebook event:

“They do work all the month to get it.. imitate them and win it in some few comedy moments”

This isn’t some cultural-themed party precisely because there is no such thing as a “maid culture”…
