Five Iranian teens have been reportedly detained for posting videos of themselves dancing to Rema’s song, ‘Calm Down’ publicly.
In a tweet from Shahrak Ekbatan, the five girls were first warned but seemingly didn’t heed it.
They were hence detained for two days before being compelled to make a forced confession.

According to Fox News, Security forces started looking for the five girls soon after the video, which was filmed near Ekbatan, west of Tehran, gained traction online.
It was said that they also violated the headgear law which was compulsory for women in Iran.
Not only did the girls violate the law by not wearing the headgear, but that the video was shared on International Women’s Day.
It was further said that the girls who were detained were pressured into apologising for their actions.
Meanwhile, responding to the incident, Rema said via his official Twitter account:
“To all the beautiful women who are fighting for a better world, I’m inspired by you, I sing for you, and I dream with you.”
