Dozens of female concertgoers in Qatar are claiming discrimination after they were denied entry to a Bryan Adams concert in Doha on Wednesday night. At least 40 women were refused admission from the Grand Hyatt Doha by security because they were wearing headscarves. The country has strict rules banning women wearing headscarves or “traditional clothing” from entering venues serving alcohol. The banned concertgoers were left standing outside, and many complained that they weren’t given any advance notice by the concert organizers or the hotel. Many of the women and their friends took to social media to express their thoughts on what they claim is overt discrimination. Find their posts here.
Matthew Perry appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Wednesday night and shared a surprising bit of information. He went to school with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, since he grew up in Ottawa. Not only that, but Perry revealed that they were classmates and didn’t get along. “I have a story about him that I’m not proud of,” Perry revealed. “My friend Chris Murray, who was also in the fifth grade in Canada, reminded me that we actually beat up Justin Trudeau. We both beat him up,” he spilled. Trudeau is just two years younger than Perry, but even then, he had already started to make Perry feel inadequate. “I think he was excelling at a sport that we weren’t as good at, so it was pure jealousy, and, you know, we beat him up,” the actor explained. Watch the hilarious confession below.
