A known American fitness influencer is stuck in Dubai after being arrested for an Instagram post.
Jordan Branford, 44, is facing a $68,000 fine or up to seven years in prison after defying the United Arab Emirates's (UAE) laws on cybercrimes.
All this is happening because he used the word "b**ch" on Instagram.
This swear word is considered offensive in Dubai, even when it's not directed at a specific person, using it may lead to criminal sanctions.
A complaint was filled against this Oregon man last year after his ex wife, Salma Ismail, reported him for using the word in a post.
If Branford is unable to pay the $68,000, he will be sentenced to seven years in a UAE prison that is known to be very violent.
He is now unable to leave the country and return to the US, because the Dubai government has taken his passport until he pays the fine or turns himself in.
