Rihanna Tweets About Thailand Sex Show, Bar Owner Arrested
Rihanna's social media posts lead to the arrest of a bar owner in Thailand.
Rihanna's posts on social media during a trip to Thailand in September have led to another arrest on the island of Phucket.
According to Billboard, a bar owner in Phucket, located 536 miles south of Bangkok, Thailand, is facing charges of obscenity and operating an entertainment venue without a permit, the island's officials said today (October 14).
During her weekend beach trip in Thailand, Rihanna said via Twitter that she witnessed lewd sex acts involving animals. She described the show on Twitter.

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 (@rihanna) September 21, 2013
The tweets were seen by Thailand official, who say they are trying to eliminate live adult entertainment in the area.
"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,” Phuket district chief Weera Kerdsirimongkon said. “We had been waiting for them and finally caught them red-handed."
Kerdsirimongkon said the bar owner could face up to one month in prison and a fine of up to 60,000 baht ($1,900).
In September, Phucket police arrested a 20-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy for illegal possession of two lorises after Rihanna posted a picture with the protected animal. Both men could face up to four years in prison and a 40,000 baht ($1,300) fine.
Rihanna made history yesterday (October 13) when she became the youngest singer to sell out the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa during her stop there for her Diamonds World Tour.
