It was a weekend of fun in Thailand for Rihanna, but two of the country’s citizens aren’t faring too well after her visit!
On Friday, the singer posted a photo of herself with a squirrel-like animal called the slow loris, an animal native to Southeast Asia. However, because the loris is listed as a “protected species,” it’s illegal to allow tourists to pose with them. After Rihanna’s photo hit the Internet, the two individuals who brought out the animal for RiRi’s photo op were arrested.
The 20 and 16-year-old men may face charges of possession of protected animals, and could face up to four years in prison. Tracking down people who exploit wildlife for money has been an ongoing issue in Thailand.
Well…at least Rihanna had a good time! “Look who was talkin dirty to me!” she jokingly captioned the pic.
