Be careful where you do the #InMyFeelingsChallenge. The popularity of the Shiggy created social media challenge has crossed oceans and has become popular all the way in Egypt, where it can also land you in jail.
Bloomberg reports the craze has been a hit in the nation with actress Dina El-Sherbiny and football star Essam El-Hadary doing the dance after hopping out of their cars. However, the Interior Ministry of Egypt understands the dance is fun and apart of the moment in the culture right now but it could also result in a fine of 3,000 pounds and a year in prison for obstruction of traffic.
Reprimands for the social media craze are also in effect in Abu Dhabi where three social media influencers are being looked for after videos of them participating in the craze hit the net. The dancing in the challenge was stated to endanger the lives of others and offend public morals.
For those that are stateside, while there aren’t any reports directly to the legality of the In My Feelings Challenge, there is always safety concerns that you should keep in mind.
