الفنان الأمريكي #Russ عرف عنه نهاية حفلاته التي يقيمها بأن يطلب من الفتيات رمي “حمالة صدر” كنوع من الإثارة، أحيى حفلة في الرياض ويبدو أن أحد الحضور قد رمى له الحمالة والبعض يقول أن من رماها هو أحد أعضاء فريقه، حاول إعطاءها للفتيات لكن لم يستلمها منه أحد. pic.twitter.com/6KM2pFqCwy
Translation: “American rapper Russ announced by the end of his concert that fans throwing their bra shows that they’re having a good time, some speculating that Russ tried to give the bra to the fans but no one took it.”
The incident received massive backlash, as it portrays unprecedented behavior according to Saudi Arabia’s conservative customs and traditions.
Saudis found the video so shocking that some people even refused to believe it was real at all, stressing that Russ is the one who brought the bra with him just to draw attention and that a Saudi woman would never behave this way.
Translation: “I'm shocked, I don't know what to say about this .. it's a disgrace!”
Saudis demanded an investigation into the video and for the woman in question to be arrested and to receive the “most severe punishment” to prevent similar incidents in the future.
Others blamed Russ for disrespecting the traditions and customs of the country by carrying on with the concert after the incident happened.
