If you want to find out what life is like inside Saudi Arabia, there's no shortage of examples circulating on the Internet. The Kingdom has some of the highest rates of Twitter users in the region and a robust supply of YouTube and Vine videos documenting everything from women driving to shisha-fueled ramblings about the Saudi Arabian government.
This week's viral video from the Kingdom shows Saudi religious police yelling at a fully-veiled woman for not wearing gloves inside a mall in the northwestern city of Ha'il.
According to reports by AFP, the video shows the religious police officer yelling at the woman and asking her to leave the store: "Walk away... don't say a word... Put on some gloves."
Meanwhile, local news agencies reported the incident happened because the woman was sitting too close to a male shopper, but the video tells a different story. Watch it below.
This is of course not the first time we've seen the ultra-conservative Saudi policing body acting badly on film. In 2012, a Saudi businesswoman brilliantly told off some of the officers after they wanted to report her for wearing nail polish.
