Fury As Saudi Influencer Twerks With Celeb Pals

Follow Ananova on

This is the moment stunning Saudi Arabian influencer Model Roz – who describes herself as the kingdom’s first ever pro model – twerks alongside two celebrity pals sparking fury among conservatives.

Rawan Abdullah Abuzaid, who goes by the name Model Roz, was filmed dancing on a beach with Australian-German singer Katja Glieson and American actor Paul Butcher, who has starred in ‘Zoey 101’ and ‘Criminal Minds’ among many other hit shows.

Butcher posted the clip on his TikTok account, leading to a “harassment” campaign against the Saudi stunner, who boasts 11.9 million followers on Instagram.

In the footage, Abuzaid, seen posing in black bottoms alongside Glieson in a tiny pink top, start dancing as US actor Butcher enters the frame.

The trio perform a short choreographed dance that culminates in Abuzaid briefly twerking her pert derriere.

Abuzaid, who describes herself as Saudi Arabia’s first ever professional model and has represented labels such as Guess and lingerie brand Victoria’s Secret, said she suffered a hate campaign as a result of Butcher’s TikTok clip.

Some conservative critics called the model’s brief twerk “pornographic”.

However, the gorgeous 27-year-old influencer slammed the online “harassment” she has suffered, shooting back: “They will be exposed one day. Indeed, God will take revenge on them.”

Abuzaid, who is now based in the US, hit the headlines last year when she filed a lawsuit against fellow Saudi expat Danah Almayouf for slander.
