MTV (the station that is facored by US embassy in Lebanon) is responsible for the homophoebia campaign in Lebanon

This is the only TV station in Lebanon that received an official visit from the US ambassador in Lebanon to show support for its editorial policy.  "MTV’s report was written in a highly inflammatory language designed to stir up anti-gay feelings.  It called the men 'shozoz', a highly derogatory term in Arabic roughly translated to ‘perverts’ in English, and alleged the cinema was a ‘safe haven’ for prostitution and debauchery."  (Shuzuz is deviance in English).
