Apparently, under the right circumstances a Rihanna selfie can get you arrested. The Bajan singer posted a pic of her and an endangered primate called a loris on her Instagram. The act promptly got two men arrested because having tourists take pics with endangered species is sort of illegal.
Rihanna was in Phuket, Thailand and posed with a loris. Seems innocent enough.
Here’s the problem. The critter is an endangered animal indigenous to Southeast Asia and there’s a law that says you can’t charge tourists money to take pics with endangered primates.
Rihanna Instagrammed the photo and people started bitching in Phuket. Authorities corralled the 2 guys who took the photo — ages 16 and 20 — and busted them.
FYI — Loris carry poison that can be deadly. When they get pissed off they release the toxins from their elbow, put the juice in their mouth and if it touches humans they can go into anaphylactic shock.
While we’re sort kind of on the topic of Phuket, check out pics of Rihanna in a bikini, and the aforementioned selfie, while she was kicking it in Thailand because…why not?
