In March 2016, after the first episode of her show "The Queen" was broadcast on Dubai TV, a trending Twitter hashtag was launched by viewers and other people demanding that the program gets stopped for multiple reasons such as the "lack of manners, degrading acts, returning us to the age of slaves" and various other claims made by the Arab world and the people of UAE. In the show, Ahlam asks contestants, who come from across the Arab world, how much they love her and if they are willing to do everything she asks of them, one of the contestants went by far to say that she's willing to cheat and betray anyone for Ahlam.

Several other journalists and known personalities such as Nidal Al Ahmadieh and Adel Karam and a few others; took the opportunity to further trend the hashtag and even insult Ahlam, and Ahlam used her Twitter to insult them back first by retweeting a poem written by one of her fans which accuses Lebanon of being "falafill peddlers" and then Ahlam tweeted said: "I'm telling the beggars so they won't keep on talking about their mistress and queen. Let them prove they love their country and pick up the rubbish from their streets" which majority of people considered to be a disrespectful generalization to the people of Lebanon. Nidal launched a hashtag on Twitter which became a popular trend easily in Lebanon and other Arab countries "Arabic: #منع_أحلام_من_دخول_لبنان‎‎" (Ban Ahlam from entering Lebanon).

After that, Ahlam reportedly took other news channels to explain the situation that she referred only to few people which she doesn't consider journalists or media and that she wouldn't even insult the sand of Lebanon, let alone insulting Lebanon as a whole, she never apologized because according to her she never made a mistake.

Whether directly or indirectly, she was reportedly replaced as judge with Samira Said for Arab Idol Season 4.


Through her career she got involved in several feuds with other celebrities including, Zekra, Shams, Nawal El Kuwaitia, Nidal Al Ahmadieh, Sameer Safeer, Shatha Hassoun and various others.
