Police in Kuwait arrest man who complained about the weather in TikTok video

Recommended Posts

Police in Kuwait have arrested a resident, an Egyptian man, for posting a video online in which he rants about bad weather and dust storms.

The arrest underscored the country’s restrictions on expression and drew criticism on social media over his detention.

Kuwait’s Ministry of Interior said the person behind the “offensive” video was arrested and referred to authorities, which would “take the necessary legal action against him”.

Probably arrested for the expletive's and not for complaining about the weather.  Not that I'm justifying that but news organizations should try to be accurate.

I heard you'll never stop the rain by complaining; but, never knew of potential sanctions.
