Emmanuel Macron has arrived in Beirut for his second visit since the massive blast there one month ago. Meanwhile, Lebanese Twitter users are not convinced by the new prime minister, saying the change is purely superficial. Elsewhere, the far-right French magazine Valeurs Actuelles is under fire for depicting a left-wing MP of African heritage as a slave with chains around her neck. Finally, British singer Adele is criticised for dressing up as a Jamaican for London's Notting Hill Carnival, but many online are defending her.
