The people of Thailand are outraged after two Americans -- who have since been arrested -- posted photos of themselves baring their buttocks in front of Bangkok’s famous Wat Arun, or Temple of Dawn.
Travis and Joseph Dasilva, both 38, were taken into custody by immigration police at Don Mueang International Airport as they were trying to leave the country Tuesday evening, according to the Bangkok Post.
Pol Col Choengron Rimpadee, deputy spokesman of immigration police, said the couple admitted to exposing their back sides and posing for photos at the sacred site, the Bangkok Post reported.
A statement from the Thai government said the two tourists could face jail time for taking the photo.
“The charge would not be a normal public indecency charge. Instead, they would be charged with committing indecency in a place of worship, which carries a long jail term,” the government statement read. “This is a reminder that everyone should have respect for Thai religion and culture.”
San Diego City Commissioner Nicole Murray-Ramirez says the Dasilvas have reached out to him for assistance and he is speaking to American authorities, according to the San Diego Gay and Lesbian News.
“Though I am very disappointed in their actions, I am talking to U.S. government officials to see what assistance we can give them,” Ramirez said.
The Dasilvas have a history of posting photos of their buttocks in front of famous sites around the world. The self-proclaimed “travel junkies” from California maintain an Instagram account called Travelling_Butts where they post their exposed photos. The account has since been taken down.
LOL! These two fags are Portuguese, and soon their assholes will be Thai meat.
It's about time we hear a good story like this one from the FAKE NEWS MEDIA.
I'm wondering, though... If this had been a strait couple, would it have made the news?
