Saudi Arabia is once again in the news with another example of the extremist religious dogma that characterizes its Wahhabi traditions. The latest lunacy came with the arrest of TV host, actor, and aspiring artist, Abdallah Al Shaharani, who committed an unIslamic and shocking act. He dabbed. That’s right. He did a dab during a musical contest. WARNING: THE VIDEOTAPE BELOW SHOW A DISTURBING DAB.
The Kingdom has banned the dab as a corrupting Western move and a symbol of the drug culture. As is often the case, the suspect was immediately displayed confessing to his sins and regrets. Al Sharanani issued a pleading apology to everyone:
“I apologize to our respected government and to my audience for unintentionally and spontaneously making the dance move at Taif festival. Please accept my apology…”
Another victory for the Saudi Sharia legal system.
