Tourists warned to respect Thai culture - two who showed their butts at Wat Arun arrested

The two gay US men who posted pictures of their butts at Wat Arun have been arrested at the airport.

 

The pair - named only as Joseph and Travis aged about 38 - were caught apparently trying to flee Thailand at Don Meuang airport.

 

They were taken to Bangkok Yai police station. Cops there had placed them on a "watch list" after their stunt at the iconic monument in their jurisdiction.

 

Immigration spokesman Cherngron Rimphadee said that behavior like that was not appropriate and took the opportunity to warn others who might do the same that it will not be tolerated.

 

Thai Rath reported that he said that tourists should show respect to the culture, traditions and religion of Thailand especially at sites like Wat Arun that are important to the Thai people.

 

The news media said that the authorities were pleased that their procedures to stop those that had broken the law were successful on this occasion.

 

The two men had posted pictures of their behinds at other places before like the Louvre in Paris and the Capitol in Washington.

 

But they clearly did not consider the resolve of the Thai authorities to come down on tourists who disrespect their culture.

 

It has yet to be reported what is the actual charge and what punishment the pair will face.

Hope they put them in for about 10 years. Must be the price for such stupidity and ignorance believing that their butts are more important than a countries history and religion.

I don't know what law was broken, but these two are simply rude idiots.

 

Show them the door...

The law of common sense. They should be jailed. Showing the door is to soft for these two butts.

IMO they should arrest the photographer as well in that case.

 

That said, is it anything to do with disrespecting culture? They are using landmarks to document their little gay global photo-journal that's all.

Phones and cameras have had a self timer function for a few decades now fwiw. That said maybe the bib incarcerated their iPhone as the primary offender. After all tit.

A week or so in jail before a court appearance seems needed here. Gay, straight or otherwise, this is not the country or venue for such displays.

Hypocrisy of the highest order.

 

As stupid as these queers are for doing this arresting them is ludicrous, it will be interesting to see the charge. This is more of a knee jerk reaction from the authorities.

That'll only make them cause celebres. Gay pride martyrs. Just kick them out and move on.

 

Not that I expect Thais will have enough cerebral power to do that.
