RIYADH: Saudi social media star Abu Sin, who was arrested last year on ‘indecency charges’, has reappeared in a video chat with the same American girl soon after his release.
In a video chat, which has racked over half a million views on YouTube, recorded and uploaded on Dec. 28, Abu Sin is seen with Christina Crockett for the first time in months since his arrest by Saudi authorities.
In a message posted on his Snapchat account, Abu Sin said that he decided to video chat Crockett one last time to explain that he has “turned a new leaf”.
Sin attempts to explain to Crockett that she should cover her hair.
“I made sure she had placed her hair inside her hoodie as a hijab in order to avoid any problems with our society. This is my last time to video chat with Christina, or any girl for that matter, as this is in my best interest and in order to respect my parents’ wishes,” he wrote.
Abu Sin was arrested in October of last year after many in Saudi Arabia complained he was advocating “unethical behavior and promoting indecency”.
