Thai Bar Owner Arrested Following Rihanna’s Sex Show Tweets
A series of tweets posted by Rihanna about a Phucket, Thailand sex show has led to a bar owner’s arrest.
Warunyoo Jornmuang, owner of the Season bar on Soi Bangla, was arrested on Saturday for “operating an entertainment venue without a permit and for providing a lewd show.”
Weera Kerdsirimongkon, the local district chief, said the man was taken into custody as part of a crackdown on shows featuring naked dancers. The investigation launched after Ri’s detailed tweets to her 32 million Twitter followers about the sex show she attended while on vacation in the tourist town.
“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,” one tweet read.
Weera told the Associated Press that, “Authorities found out about this bar the morning after Rihanna tweeted about it, but we were not able to catch them violating the law until Saturday night. We had been waiting for them and finally caught them red-handed.”
The bar owner reportedly could face up to one month in jail and a $1,900 fine.
During that same trip, a photo of Rihanna on Instagram posing with a Loris led to the arrest of two Thai men. Officials took the young adults, ages 16 and 20 into custody for charging tourists money to take photos with endangered animals.
