Youssef, however, had predicted the backlash prior to the leaks, although he later told BBC Arabic that he did not regret supporting Sisi.
“I know that my continued objection to the constitutional amendments will bring me troubles, possibly to the extent of jail on trumped-up charges, but I’ve said before that I am willing to pay the price and face repercussions, no matter how harsh they may be.

Egyptian MP and filmmaker Khaled Youssef is in danger of having his membership of parliament cancelled as a lawsuit seeks to strip him of his parliamentary immunity from prosecution.
The video was picked up and reported on by state-owned newspapers last month, just days after he had said he was opposed to lifting the presidency's two-term constitutional limit.
Youssef, who is currently in France for a family visit, may face prosecution if his parliamentary immunity is lifted.
Youssef has accused the country's authorities of publicising the video, which he is alleged to have filmed with two women actors, as an act of revenge in response to his opposition to proposed changes to the constitution.
Youssef, a member of the small opposition bloc in parliament, has spoken out against the changes, which could enable President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi to remain in power until 2034.
If convicted, Youssef could face a minimum of two years in jail, according to Egyptian law that criminalises “prostitution and incitement to immorality” including by “electronic communication”.
Egyptian public prosecutor Nabil Sadeq has imposed a gag order on Youssef’s case after the two women apparently in the video were arrested.
But he was also an opponent of the Muslim Brotherhood and was one of the icons of the 2013 protests calling for Morsi to quit.
On 30 June 2013, Youssef was granted exclusive use of a military helicopter to film bird’s eye footage of the protests against Morsi’s rule.
"They [authorities] believe that those opposing the amendments must face intimidation to be silenced,” he wrote on Facebook.
