Netflix's Jinn

The National, Netflix's Jinn portrays Jordan as country of loose morals, say Jordanians

I've yet to see 'Jinn', which is generating some headlines at the moment. "Jinn, the first Arabic original series on Netflix, was filmed in the Jordanian capital Amman and the ancient city of Petra. It features a Jordanian cast and uses local dialects.
"It has caused debate in Jordan, where some feel the series has “insulted” the country’s image and threatened its morals with scenes that show unmarried teenagers kissing.
"One particular scene shared on social media depicts the Jordanian lead Salma Malhas sharing a kiss and holding hands with her love interest."
