Saudi Singer Arrested For Dabbing At A Festival: Is This Really The End?

Dabbing makes you do drugs and drugs are bad, m'kay?

Yes that headline is correct. The Dab. The dance that was so popular that even politicians like Hillary Clinton and Paul Ryan attempted to do it “to reach the kids.” Now a popular Saudi singer has been arrested for doing it at a music festival in South West Saudi Arabia.

Abdallah Al Shahani, a TV host, actor, and Saudi national performed the dance move over the weekend at a music festival during a set. It is outlawed in the conservative country where authorities consider it a reference to narcotics culture. The Saudi Interior Ministry's National Commission for Combating Drugs banned the move because they consider it a reference to marijuana use according to the BBC. They even made posters about the move saying it was bad. It is almost comical.

You can see him pull off the dab and old it strong for a solid two or three seconds. I hope the Atlanta rap community comes and supports this strong dabber for the culture.
