He then added, “Fine, Kuwait, fine.”

The Persian Gulf sheikhdom’s Ministry of Interior claimed the video was “offensive” and after the man’s arrest authorities would “take the necessary legal action against him.”

According to the AP, Kuwait is known for quashing criticism through enforcement of strict cybercrime laws, which many point out are an affront to free expression.
