The influencer that shared stories telling her followers 'if you want to go out, go out,' has been arrested.
The Dubai Police arrested the European national for violating health and security measures implemented to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
She had posted previously to Instagram, sharing stories to her 40,000+ followers, saying 'staying at home, what is this? Put on your sneakers and go for a run - do whatever you want to do.'
It sparked outrage, and Dubai Police have since arrested her.
