Saudi-Kuwaiti singer Shams Bandar said that she accepts Jews, Christians, and people with no religion. Responding to criticism of a tweet blessing Jews on a holiday, she said sarcastically: "So burn them. Bring Hitler back. Bring ovens… We have modern ovens that burn faster." When asked about tweets deemed "pro-homosexual," she said that she "neither supports nor opposes" gays. She said that she opposes gay marriage, and that she viewed homosexuals as suffering from mental and physical problems, adding: "Most of them end up committing suicide."
