This Image Of Adele With A Hijabi Fan Is Sweeping Across Social Media

This songstress kisses the hand of a Muslim woman at her latest gig – and Twitter goes wild.

We hardly need more reasons to love Adele, but her most recent fan encounter certainly doesn’t hurt.

The British singer has been touring Australia over the last few weeks (wearing a rather spectacular Zuhair Murad gown, we hasten to add), where she’s been performing to sell-out crowds.

However, during one of her Sydney shows, it was a brief meeting with a fan that stole headlines, not her dress.

Many commended the singer’s actions on Twitter, describing the encounter as an act of inclusivity, especially in the face of a recent EU ruling allowing the banning of hijabs in the workplace.

“Adele had just finished singing When We Were Young when my fiance, Adi, lifted me up on his shoulders,” she told Nine News.

“I was crying, and she said ‘don’t cry darling’ and I kissed her hand. She returned the favour and kissed my hand back.”

Let’s hope she performs in the UAE soon… and this time we’ll be the ones in the front row, waving ecstatically.
