Noor Tagouri of #LetNoorShine fame, share her point of view over media misrepresentation. As she was misrepresented into American Media as Noor Suleman who is the wife of gunman Omar Mateen; the guy behind Orlando Night Club.
Considering the magnitude of the case and involvement of a Muslim guy in the massacre, the incident has been reported as one of deadliest event in the history of American. Multiple media outlets have reported about the attack and case proceedings but in all of this midst the American Media has conducted a highly irresponsible act of misrepresentation that cause a person’s public persona to be jeopardize. In the time of content chaos where everybody wants to be heard loud & clear, be the first to break and stand out, one of the media outlet publicize the wrong picture of Noor Tagouri in place of Noor Suleman, which has gone viral on overall American Media Streams, a severe mistake that has cost Noor Tagouri much more than a mistake, but the question arises here is that is it really just a mistake?
Not really! According to Noor Tagouri this is common, very depressing and stereotypical approach of news anchors and media person in America that whenever it comes to a news related to Muslims they expect a hijabi woman or a beard man behind the massacre without thinking rationally. Noor speaks out loud her point and show his rage & concern over this very matter in the video below:
