Foreign couple caught writing graffiti on Koh Lanta - locals outraged

Photos showing a young foreign couple spray painting a wall on Koh Lanta have been shared on social media.

 

The photos, which were shared in the Koh Lanta Info group on Sunday, were reportedly taken on Saturday Jan 13.

 

The photos appear to show a western man with spray can in hand ‘tagging’ a wall, while his female accomplice stands close by.

 

A motorcycle can also be seen in the photographs with registration number 9355.

 

The photos were uploaded with the caption: “These photos were published elsewhere, but I think everyone should know what these people have been doing to this lovely island. They were seen tagging yesterday on Lanta. Name and Shame guys”.

 

People commenting on on the post were outraged, calling the couple “idoits”, “stupid” and criticising them for “a lack of respect”.

 

The photos taken on Koh Lanta follow a similar incident that occurred in Bangkok in December when another foreign couple were filmed graffiting an advertising pole on Silom Road.

 

Footage of the incident went viral was viewed a more than 2 million times.

 

Police later arrested American couple at a Bangkok hotel, who identified as Bruce Baizer, 29, and Ristin, Joness 22, (names transliterated).

 

The pair apologised and they were fined 5,000 baht.

People who do this should be kicked out of the country, regardless of what country it is, and then permanently banned from ever returning to it.

The December couple in Bangkok weren't British, but I can't see any nationality mentioned for these ?

(I'm British too !).

I have visited Koh Lanta a few times and to be honest the roads/pavements are the worst I have ever encountered anywhere.....graffiti from idiots is the least of their problems :whistling:

nor should it be, if you are foriegn and can t behave civilly, out you go.   Why should the owner of the wall have to pay to repaint it so 2 idiots from a far wealthier country can have their childish fun.

Sorry for this but this is the time I would like to see five to one odds and them getting the shit beat out of them. I love Thailand and was my home for 32 years so you <deleted> with my home I am gong to bust your ass. They got off easy and they should be happy I was not there, a Marine could cause them serious pain and the Thais would not give a shit if they got a beating.

Kick his ass, he's wearing a stupid shaped baseball cap.  Stick his head in a paper bag and spray some paint in there - he'd probably enjoy it.

 

Just noticed the nice rear tire on that rented scooter.  They couldn't have fled far.  Who got the picture anyway?

Yeah, because a little impromptu artwork is such a blight on a mildew stained wall that any self respecting owner would keep maintained and painted.  They've actually done the neighbors a favor if someone now has to go out and paint the dilapidated wall.

 

I'm not in favor of tagging, mind you.  But neither am I in favor of letting the neighborhood look like a slum 6 months after the construction crew leaves.  Especially when labor is 300 baht a day to keep it painted.  (Edit:  and a few extra baht gets you mildew resistant paint)

 

Now, if they tag a nicely maintained or historic site, get out the cane.  (or is that somewhere else?)

I am an American. The culprits were American. So I will try to help them out. Volunteer to get on the sewer cleaning gang from prison. These guys get to go home early...
