Musikhjälpen fielded a crisis meeting with Badran Sunday. Now he has chosen to leave his role as ambassador.
– I wanted to be a good ambassador for the Swedish people, but has now decided to step off the assignment. The risk is great that the focus ends up on this rather than on Musikhjälpens theme. I really hope the Swedish people will continue to engage in Musikhjälpen, that will I do, but in other ways during the week, he said in a statement.
He rejects from the post and believes that it is someone else who wrote the post from a loan phone that he had previously used.
– I got angry calls and saw that much hatred has arisen in connection with the image and apologize from my heart that this has happened, and to those who were tagged in the picture. I have now changed the password on my social media. Forgive, he writes on his Instagram.
SVT themselves wanted to Paradise Hotel star would remain, but that is not the case. However, he will participate in another way during the week.
– We think it is sad that Samir right now do not want to go in as ambassador, we wanted him to be there but respect his decision and support him . He will be in Musikhjälpen during the week in other ways and we are happy, says Petter Bragée, program manager and publisher SVT Malmö, in a statement.
