Asal, along with her colleague, host Hussam Haddad, was interviewing Egyptian actor Ibrahim El-Samman. The actor brought a monkey to the interview with which he recently starred in the project.
While El-Samman and Haddad were having a conversation, Asal took the monkey and held it by a leash. A few minutes later, she began to play with the animal, but soon the monkey attacked her. Surprised, Asal screamed and tried to push the monkey away, and finally ran away from the studio.
