Selena Gomez drew fury after uploading a controversial snap of her bare ankle inside Abu Dhabi's Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. While Selena's "disrespectful' image has since been deleted, another debatable photo is still viewable on Kendall Jenner's account. The mosque's strict code of conduct prohibits "intimate behavior," which includes men and women touching, and requires skirts to be ankle-length. Instagram user Ayisha Elturk commented on Jenner's photo, "If their intent was to learn about Islam they wouldn't be posing like they were standing outside and amusement park." Perhaps having fourteen social media-obsessed young adults visit a place of worship together wasn't the finest of ideas.
