Over the weekend, a music festival named MDL Beast went down in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. A ton of celebrities posted from the event including Armie Hammer, Ryan Phillippe, Winnie Harlow, Sofia Richie, Irina Shayk, Scott Disick, Ed Westwick, Alessandra Ambrosio.
The music festival was sponsored by the Saudi Kingdom, which is known for being pretty awful when it comes to human rights. They have no rights for LGBT+ people, kill journalists and have limited women’s right.
The country’s recent controversy was the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. They also arrested a prominent women’s rights activist Loujain al-Hathloul.
