Thai sex show owner arrested after Rihanna visit
BANGKOK (AFP) - Thai authorities said they had arrested the owner of a sex show visited by pop icon Rihanna - the latest crackdown inadvertently triggered by the singer's tweets.
The bar owner on the island of Phuket has been charged in connection with the lewd performance, local district chief Veera Kerdsirimongkol told AFP on Monday, following an operation involving undercover officials.
"It was the result of the visit by Rihanna. The authorities will be more strict towards inappropriate shows or wildlife attractions," he said.
Thai tourist officials were left red-faced after Rihanna's tweets last month drew worldwide attention to the kingdom's seedier side.
