Saudi Arabia Celebrates Cannes Film Festival Debut With Live Stoning on Red Carpet

Saudi Arabia celebrated the country’s historic first ever appearance at the Cannes Film Festival by holding a live stoning on the red carpet in front of the world’s press.

The impromptu event at the foot of the Palais des Festivals even drew in several A-listers, including competition jury head Cate Blanchett, who lobbed several rocks at a selection of men and women charged with adultery and shipped over especially.

“Cannes is known for the crazy stunts and pranks people pull to generate a bit of buzz and headlines, but stoning to death a load of people really ups the ante,” laughed one Hollywood producer. “It’s just a good job the carpet is red!”
