Saudi Singer Arrested For Doing The Dab Dance Move on Stage

Saudi Singer Arrested for Doing Dab Dance Move On Stage

A Saudi Arabian television host, actor and singer was reportedly arrested by the authorities because he did the Dab – a popular dance move – on stage during a concert. Apparently the dance had been banned by the Saudi Interior Ministry.

Saudi Arabia is known as a very conservative, some say oppressive, Middle Eastern country. The Kingdom is a strong ally to the United States, mostly because of oil interests.

The National Commission for Combating Drugs feels the dance move is a reference to marijuana – “dabbing” is also a practice for inhaling concentrated THC wax.

According to StereoGum

A notice from the commission warns “people about the dangers of this [move] on the youth and society, and is warning against imitating,” per BBC’s translation.

The singer apologized on Twitter Tuesday saying it was an accident.

So yeah… that happened.
