Michelle Obama Reportedly Caused Quite A Stir in Saudi Arabia

Michelle Obama has reportedly caused quite a stir this week following a visit to Saudi Arabia.

According to reports, the First Lady did not wear a head scarf on her visit to the country and this has apparently caused a stir amongst locals who believe it was disrespectful.

Michelle was with her husband President Barack Obama in Saudi Arabia in order to pay their respects to King Abdullah who passed away on January 23rd.

Reports have stated that exceptions to the dress code in the country are made for foreign visitors and Michelle did cover her arms and legs as a mark of respect.
