Russ Causes Scandal By Twirling Bra During His Performance In Saudi Arabia

American rapper Russ touched down in Saudi Arabia over the weekend for a huge performance, which was not without some controversy.

(AllHipHop News) Rapper Russ caused a major controversy during his first performance in Saudi Arabia.

The rapper finally made it to the country for a performance in the country's capital of Riyadh on Friday.

But his touchdown in the country has already been marred with controversy after someone threw a bra on the stage in the middle of his show.

Russ was captured picking up the woman's undergarment, and gleefully swinging it around.

Russ' behavior would not even make headlines in the United States, but Saudi Arabia is notoriously conservative.

In fact, the country's oppression of women made headlines around the world just last month.

At the end of October, police in Riyadh arrested a woman for showing off her hip-hop dance moves during a mixed-gender festival called "Riyadh Season."

American artists like Alicia Keys, French Montana, Pit Bull, Bruno Mars, and others are providing the soundtrack for the festival, which took place during the ongoing festival, which started in October and doesn't end until December 15.

In July, rap star Nicki Minaj decided to back out of a gig at the Jeddah World Fest in Jeddah because of the kingdom's track record of human rights abuses, as well as its treatment of women and gays.

As for Russ, footage of the rapper twirling the bra at his concert has already sparked a heated debate on Twitter while the local media is condemning the bra-swinging incident.
