Have you ever dabbed so hard you broke the law?

Singer Abdallah Al Shahan has.

Saudi Arabia is pretty strict with its rules and regulations. And, apparently, it’s illegal to dab there. After a video of the singer dabbing went viral, he was arrested at a music festival in Taif. The viral pop culture phenomenon has become a youth fixture in the states with everyone from Skrillex & Diplo to Betty White getting their dab on. But unfortunately that didn't help Abdallah's cause.

He tweeted an apology for the incident, saying:

 “I apologize to our respected government and to my audience for unintentionally and spontaneously making the dance move at Taif festival.”

The government banned the infamous dab as they say it’s linked to marijuana use, and has a negative impact on “youth and society”.
