- Artists such as the Black Eyed Peas, Enrique Iglesias and David Guetta receive fierce criticism from human rights activists for their planned performances at a Saudi festival later this month.
The president of the Human Rights Foundation Garri Kasparov thinks that these musicians should be able to immediately make the shows. He says that to the Hollywood reporter. With the murder of the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi still fresh in the memory, Kasparov calls the musicians 'hypocritical'. 'They have previously called on their fans to work for human rights and to fight against social injustice. This hypocrisy will cost them their reputation and credibility. '
