Young Saudi Woman Arrested For Viral Video Showing Her Wearing Mini-Skirt And Crop Top In Public

Saudi Arabian police have apprehended this woman who wore a mini skirt and crop top in public. She violated the kingdom’s strict conservative dress laws. Authorities were set off when a viral video of “the suspect” was released online, sparking outrage all throughout the kingdom. The video showed this young Saudi model walking around a historic site in Ushaiager, a village north of the capital city of Riyadh. This area is a hotbed of conservative tribal ideologies.

Ibrahim al-Munayif, a Saudi writer who has more than 41,000 followers on Twitter, criticized the model’s viral video.

Ibrahim tweeted, “Just like we call on people to respect the laws of countries they travel to, people must also respect the laws of this country.”
Twitter user Isis Semaj-Hall had a positive take on the issue. He called for fashion equality for the masses.

Khulood has also posted a video of herself driving, as a protest towards the nation’s law that prohibits women from driving a car or any motor vehicle.
But back to the viral video at hand, local media outlets wouldn’t allow their audiences to see the model in her mini skirt and crop top. Instead, they threw a white cloth over the woman…
