Rainbow-hating Saudi authorities jail school administrator over "Emblem Of Homosexuality"


This adorably playful rainbow mural on the Talaee Al-Noor International School in Riyadh reportedly led to a $25,000 fine, and jail for the school administrator who was blamed for the festive art. Why? Because rainbows are seen as "Emblems Of Homosexuality," and anything remotely gay is a Very Bad Crime in Saudi Arabia.

Buzzfeed has more.

The news first hit the Arabic-language Twitternets by way of an account associated with the agency that enforces the country's religious law.

The tweet, from the Saudi Society Channel, also showed that the Talee al-Noor International School has been repainted.

We are shocked.
