Okay so, four days ago Twitter user Ahmed Al Omran posted a video of the coolest Jeddah boy busting some moves to the iconic ’90s hit “Macarena.” The tweet went viral, but for all the wrong reasons. Social media users crucified the poor boy, simply because he was dancing.
If you think this is it, well, it’s not because it gets worse. According to Khaleej Times, the 14-year-old boy was detained by the Saudi police.
The teenager, whose name and nationality were not given, was questioned because of his “improper public behavior,” a statement from Mecca police said.
It was not clear whether he would be formally charged.
