Rihanna, the Queen of Pop, is in Thailand shooting a music video and also seeing the sights around Phuket. She has been tweeting and posting pictures on Instagram over the last week which has obviously been great for the Thai tourism industry. You just can’t buy publicity like this. I even saw several Thais tweet that they were proud that Rihanna was often tweeting with the hashtag #Thailand. They obviously thought more people would come to hear of the beauty of the Kingdom. But I think this will be more of a two edged sword. Just take a look at this one headline now going around the world: “Rihanna Visits Bizarre Thailand Sex Show”.
Unfortunately for Thailand, Rihanna went to see a “ping pong show” while she was in Phuket. For those who don’t know, this is a sex show which is common to see in places like Pattaya and Bangkok as well as the holiday island of Phuket. This is of course against the law but it still takes place every night. Local police seemingly have little power in enforcing the law.
Either I was phuck wasted lastnight, or I saw a Thai woman pull a live bird,2 turtles,razors,shoot darts and ping pong, all out of her pu$$y
And THEN she tried to turn water into coke in her $!! Uhh yea, all I’m saying is water went in and soda came out! I’m traumatized!!!
Rihanna also watched an elephant show and a lady boy show – probably at Phuket Fantasea.
However, what will anger people more, or at least the animal welfare people, is this picture of Rihanna with an endangered loris. These creatures are protected by law and it is illegal for touts to charge people to have their photos taken with a loris. They have done crackdowns in the past but it looks like they are back.
I think on Monday there will be quite a few red faced officials who will have to explain why this international pop star was able to visit an illegal sex show and have her picture taken with an endangered animal. Do you think this will lead to another series of crackdowns or will it be business as usual next week?
