Rotterdam influencer “stuck in Morocco” after tv dating show

A still from the programme

The Dutch consul in Morocco is providing assistance to a young Rotterdam woman who has reportedly been stopped from returning home pending an investigation into a skimpy outfit she wore on a local television dating show.

Armani L’Goumani, described as an “influencer” with 530,000 followers on social media, appeared on the programme wearing high heels and a very short skirt and may have offended Moroccan rules on public decency, RTL Nieuws reported.

L’Goumani says she was stopped at the airport and told to report to the police while her case is being looked into. She is not in police custody but is living in an apartment. 

The YouTube show, published on April 11, has now been seen over two million times. In it L’Goumani attempts to find the man of her dreams by studying his clothes rather than attributes. She also rejected one man because her dog did not like him, the AD reported. 

In the meantime L’Goumani has published a video on TikTok apologising for offending some people. “I did not grow up in Moroccan society, but in the Netherlands, where short skirts are normal,” she said. 

She later told local broadcaster Rijmond that she was sorry about taking part in the show. “I do respect Morocco’s standards and values, even though I am not the only one here walking around like this,” she said. “I hope I don’t end up going to jail.”
