Saudi Arabian singer is arrested for dabbing

Image You Tube

For most of us, the dab is a dance move trend appropriated from the Atlanta hip-hop scene and overused to the point of parody. Just a few days ago, the ministry tweeted an image that depicts a dabbing figure with a red X on top of it and warns "people about the dangers of this [move] on the youth and society, and is warning against imitating it".

Abdallah Al Shahani apologised for the incident on Tuesday via Twitter, saying the dab happened "unintentionally and spontaneously".

Secretary-General of the National Committee for Drug Control Abdul-Ella Al Sharif said Shaharani's dab was "contrary to the national strategy to combat drugs" and the arrest was on the same grounds as for someone who "incites or advocates for abuse of drugs". Whoever breaks the law gets arrested. "Accept my apology", the message read. "Thank you to the security forces".

Hoertkorn Richard Charles Has $5082000 Position in Marvell Technology Group Ltd. (MRVL)
Baystate Wealth Management Ltd Liability Co invested 0.07% of its portfolio in 3M Co (NYSE:MMM). (NASDAQ:MYGN) for 17,968 shares. It improved, as 25 investors sold MRVL shares while 106 reduced holdings. 100 funds opened positions while 464 raised stakes.

A now viral video shows TV host, actor, and aspiring artist, Abdallah Al Shaharani, doing the dance move that is officially banned by the country's anti-drug authority because it is believed that the move is a reference to weed and other (illegal) drugs. "Does he think he's challenging authorities with these actions?"

"This move has an obvious negative influence on people".

However, even after he publicly apologized, his performance at the Taif festival are still stirring up controversy on social media.
