On Saturday (May 22nd), Pakistani actress Zoya Nasir announced her breakup with her fiancé Christian Betzmann after a scandal erupted over his views on Israel’s violence towards Palestine.
Zoya Nasir took to Instagram to publicly proclaim that she and Betzmann are no longer together.
“It’s with a heavy heart I’m announcing that Christian Betzmann and I are no longer engaged to be married. His sudden change in stance towards my culture, my country, my people, and insensitivity towards my religion has to lead me to take this difficult and irrevocable decision,” she wrote.
The actress further added, “There are certain religious and social boundaries that can’t be crossed no matter what, hence, the decision to part ways. Humility, Tolerance and Respect towards each other are the virtues that we must always adhere to. I look upon my Allah to provide me with the strength to deal with this worldly emotional wreck. I wish Chris a bright and happy future.”
Zoya concluded by saying: “I sincerely request for space and privacy for myself and my family as we begin to navigate this emotional turmoil.”
As things were not going Christian’s way, the worldwide YouTuber decided to break the ice and speak for himself.
He published his side of the tale on Instagram, attempting to rationalise what had occurred.

Previously, Christian Betzmann, a German vacation Vlogger, made statements against Palestine and Israel that got him in hot water, and netizens strongly chastised him.
An Instagram user revealed a chat she had with Christian, who feels that social media has never aided any political event.
He goes on to say that ‘your strikes are futile, a waste of time.’
And then he concluded his conversation by saying: “It is better to go pray as praying is the only thing Third World countries can do”.
“Whereas, first world countries are based on doers”, Christian declared.
Later, the Vlogger chimed in with his thoughts via his Instagram name.
