Another user suggested that Mr Al Shahani's behaviour was provocative.

"Even though the anti-drug authority banned this move and warned people not to perform it, this contestant is promoting it at a public festival!!! Does he think he's challenging authorities with these actions?" commented @honest_very.

Saudi singer arrested for dabbing

But some defended the dab.

"I'm sure it was an accident, because I personally know this man and his morals, and he has apologised and shown people that he wasn't aware of the meaning of the move," said TV presenter @Kemmooalharbi.

"This was just a spontaneous move, he has since apologised to the country's people and government and you're still holding it against him?" said @TDouHKejhaQbxdu.

While @asdasd550909800 suggested: "It's clear that he didn't even know what the move means".

However, it isn't the first time a celebrity has dabbed in Saudi Arabia though.

Social media users noted singer Rabeh Sager frequently performs the controversial move during his performances.
