Pharrell Williams Calls Out Iranian President Over ‘Happy’ Arrests

'Free these kids,' Skateboard P tells Hassan Rouhani.

Pharrell Williams was not enthused when six young Iranians were arrested for uploading a video of themselves dancing around Tehran to his global smash “Happy.”

On Tuesday, he wrote, “It is beyond sad that these kids were arrested for trying to spread happiness.”

Then, early Thursday morning (March 22), he challenged Iranian president Hassan Rouhani by reposting the Rouhani’s tweet from June 2013 about the importance of happiness.
