Saudi authorities have arrested a man who posted a video to Snapchat of himself sharing some smooches with a woman.
The video shows a couple in a car, flirting and kissing like any normal couple would presumably do. Except in Saudi Arabia, unmarried couples are a sin under Sharia law and a legal no-no. The couple’s video went viral and was marked as “explicit,” resulting in the Saudi province Jazan’s governor Prince Mohammad bin Abdel Aziz demanding they be arrested.
Saudi social media users reacted to the “explicit” video and news of the arrest warrants, some were shocked while others were actually happy that the two would be put behind bars. “Lack of modesty,” wrote one user in a translated tweet. “I hope they’re both caught soon, let them be thrown in jail for a few years so that they learn some respect and manners.”
