Reacting to the show on social media, a Saudi woman wearing a loose headscarf accused the Saudi government of hypocrisy for inviting Minaj to perform but requiring women who attend the concert to wear the modest full-length robe known as the abaya, Aljazeerah reports.
“She’s going to go and shake her ass and all her songs are indecent and about s3x and shaking ass and then you tell me to wear the abaya. What the hell?, the Saudi woman said in a video that has been viewed more than 37,000 times.
