You won't believe why this singer was ARRESTED in Saudi Arabia

Actor and singer Abdallah Al Shaharani’s dab didn’t go down well with authorities

Another Saudi singer, Rabeh Saqer also performed the move in a concert in Egypt, attracting criticism of his own.

With its roots in the Atlanta hip-hop scene, the dance has been unconvincingly tied to weed culture, particularly the act of smoking cannabis oil.

The move was recently banned by the Ministry of Interior's National Commission for Combatting Drug Use because of its supposed connections to marijuana.

Shahani took to Twitter on Tuesday to apologize for his dastardly dancing, in essence saying he accidentally busted out the move in a fit of live-show energy.

Abdallah Al Shahani, a TV host, actor, and Saudi national, was performing the dance move, which involves a person tucking their head into the crook of their arm, at a music festival in the city of Taif at the weekend.

Following the criticisms Saqer also tweeted an apology for the move showing his "full support" for the country's war on drugs.

Prior to his imprisonment, Al Shaharani issued an apology on Twitter, stating, "I am most apologetic to our honorable government and my dear president for the spontaneous movement I made in the Ta'if Festival".

According to BBC, Abdallah Al Shahani was arrested after doing the dance move, as it is banned in the country, being that authorities believe it is a reference to drug use.

"This move has an obvious negative influence on people". One user wrote. "Does he think he's challenging authorities with these actions?" And while we once wished we could outlaw the dance move preferred by Minions and former presidential candidates, we've got a cautionary tale from Saudi Arabia.
