In a 52-minute video uploaded to Youtube last year, Malaysian preacher Abdul Somad said that Muslims buying from Starbucks would be thrown into hell because of the coffee chain's open support of the LGBT community.
According to AsiaOne, Somad said: "In the afterlife [...] the angels will ask the [LGBT community], 'How did [your community] grow so big?' [The LGBT community] will respond, 'Because of the donations [given to us]. 'Who gave you the donations?' 'Those who are in heaven.'"
Although the video was originally uploaded in October 2017, it went viral last week after Twitter users found the footage and called out its ridiculousness.
"Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, all of them support LGBT rights. Based on his logic, wouldn't that mean its users will go to hell too?" Muslim scholar Akhmad Sahal said on his Twitter account, pointing out that the cleric was using a LGBT-friendly social media.
