Rihanna has once again been tweeting about Thailand, which has again resulted in an arrest.
The singer tweeted about her experience in Thailand recently about a bar where she witnessed an illegal sex show at a bar and those tweets led to the bar owner being arrested, The Associated Press reports.
Local district chief Weera Kerdsirimongkon said, "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."
"We had been waiting for them and finally caught them red-handed," he added. The arrest is part of crackdowns on naked dancing shows.
The bar owner could see a fine up to 1,900 (60,000 baht) fine and a month in prison.
As previously reported, Rihanna posted a picture of herself with an endangered animal in Thailand back in September.
The singer posted a picture of her with an internet favorite anime, the slow loris. Rihanna added the caption, "Look who was talkin dirty to me! #Thailand #nightlife."
The slow loris is protected in Thailand and two men were arrested for possession of protected animals because of it. They could face four years in prison and a $1,300 (40,000 baht) fine.
Kerdsirimongkon said, "Phuket authorities were alerted to the picture (of Rihanna), and last night police arrested the two individuals who brought out the loris as a photo opportunity for tourists."
