High-profile Egyptian belly dancer Sama el-Masry was sentenced to three years in prison Saturday after prosecutors said she posted sexually suggestive videos to TikTok.
El-Masry, 42, was arrested in April and accused of inciting debauchery and committing immorality by sharing the content.
But the dancer has denied uploading the videos to the social media platform, telling authorities the content was stolen from her phone and posted by somebody else without her consent.
John Talaat, a member of parliament who asked for legal action against el-Masry and other female TikTok users, told Reuters that the dancer and other female social media influencers were destroying family values and traditions.
There is a huge difference between freedom and debauchery, Talaat said. El-Masry said she would appeal the sentence. Entessar el-Saeed, a womens rights lawyer in Cairo, told the Thomson Reuters Foundation that only women are being targeted by Egypts 2018 cyber crime law that El-Masry was charged under.
Our conservative society is struggling with technological changes which have created a completely different environment and mindsets, said El-Saeed.

Oh, that pesky phone!
Yea, what she said.
“They have Democrats in Egypt?”
Apparently so. Obsession to control (normal) women and technology. The photo seems to reflect what Egyptians might see when out at a public establishment that features belly dancing.
"...the dancer and other female social media influencers..."
They appear to be blaming it on women on the internet.
I’m only here to read the article.
Now I remember her. She’s the one in that delightful anti-Obama video of several years ago.
Muzzies gonna be muzzies, I guess, even when they're blasting other muzzies.
That clip is just right for a little cherry-picking Photoshop, too.
No tats? How can she be debauched without tats?
Well, I didn’t miss it. Just didn’t highlight it.
But they’re not wrong about many of them.
Liberals at Yahoo really love the “social media influencers...” - though oftentimes, in their quest for fame, a lot of them have wound up dying.
Same for some of the guys doing Facebook Live. Some of them try dangerous and foolhardy stunts.
