Boy, 14, arrested in Saudi for ‘improper public behaviour’ by dancing to Macarena in street

A 14-year-old boy has been arrested in the Saudi city of Jeddah for dancing to the Macarena song in a street.

The boy was accused of “improper public behaviour” for enjoying the 1990s pop hit as he crossed a road.

    Dancing is bad but blocking traffic is okay? Typical downside up in Allahstan.

      Perhaps that is what the boy is charged with and the media ran with another story.

      I’m struck by how North American this kid looks (even his weight). And then I see the women!

        Aren’t polo shirts haraam?? What’s happened to Islo-standards in The Kingdom?

  • Finally, somebody gets busted for dancing the Macarena. It should have been outlawed internationally decades ago. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will outlaw “Gangnam Style”. 😉

    But I think we should keep the “Lambada”.

    He was probably just happy and relieved after beating his bearded dragon to death….

    Perhaps he will have a private stoning to death, instead of a public beheading. Saudi Arabia is a modern Islamic state.

    He did pretty good with the dance. His only mistake was blocking the street.

  • laja kurc

    He was actually pretty good. I hope they don’t cut his feet off.

    Not that long ago some Iranians were arrested and sentenced to getting whipped and jail time merely for appearing in a youtube video dancing to Pharrell Williams Happy song. There is no joy or happiness in Islam,
