Egypt is all abuzz over a controversial movie poster promoting the latest film with a noted belly dancer.

According to Al Arabiya, social media users in Egypt are outraged over the poster for “Apple Charcoal,” which shows the panties-covered legs of a woman. In between her legs is a water pipe.

The film is starring Sama al-Masry, an Egyptian belly dancer who has raised eyebrows in the past for controversial statements.

In one YouTube clip, she denounces President Barack Obama as a supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood, presumably as part of the Egyptian backlash against Washington over its denunciations of the military coup that brought Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to power.
