Muna al-Beheiri, the Egyptian woman who famously told Obama to shut up his “mouse,” denied that she will deliver a speech during the opening of the new Suez Canal.

She told Al-Arabiya that she did in fact submit an application to participate in the event and now awaits the approval to attend.

Beheiri said she submitted a request to participate at the Monufia governorate, her hometown, where officials told her all invitations have been handed out and that the management of the Suez Canal authority has only settled with 8,000 guests, adding that she requested them to find a way for her to participate and they’ve promised to do so.
