“I hope she will also publish how her husband massages her feet when she is tired," one user commented.
Rabat – Asmaa Beauty, a YouTuber with more than a million subscribers, has started an online debate with her tutorials on how to be a “good wife.”
The videos, many of which have almost a million views, give advice on how to take care of your husband’s feet, get along with his family members, and generally serve him.
The video regarding her husband’s footcare caused a stir in particular, and a debate on social media ensued. One Facebook user commented “I hope she will also publish how her husband massages her feet when she is tired. We have to fight against gender stereotypes and cliches.”
Another user commented that while “she is free to make the videos she wants, in the extremely macho society of a developing country where we rarely see or hear husbands helping the women at home to see the same degree, this is old fashioned and not interesting.”
Others also argued that while it was fine to do as she pleases behind closed doors, it should remain private and publishing it on YouTube may send the wrong message.
“It is not the act of taking care of her husband’s feet that poses a problem in itself, we can take care of the husband as we wish, but to expose it in such a way is too far,” a user commented.
Although many of the videos have received negative comments, the beauty YouTuber does have a dedicated following. Many of her fans weighed in on the debate, coming to her defense.
“Watch the video and you will see that she finds it a pleasure in taking care of her husband. There is nothing wrong with that, as long as nobody forces her and it is mutual. Some of you could learn something from this young wife.”
Just this weekend, 5000 people flocked to the Asmaa Beauty Center in Kenitra to meet the influencer in person.
