Traveling Butts Instagrammers arrested in Thailand for Buddhist temple pic

BTW

Sometimes, you shouldn’t do it for the’ Gram–especially if it means being disrespectful to an ancient culture and getting arrested.

According to the Associated Press, two Americans who operate the Instagram account” Traveling Butts” were arrested in Thailand on Tuesday night after posting a photograph of themselves disclosing their butt at Bangkok’s Wat Arun, a famous Buddhist temple.

Deputy police spokesman Krisana Pattanacharoen told AP that the two men, merely identified by their first names, were arrested at the Bangkok airport. Both paid a fine of five, 000 baht, or $150, before being transferred to immigration authorities and face public indecency charges. Police are also holding charging them with Thailand’s computer crimes act, a statute often used against the online free speech of political activists.

While AP reported that the” Traveling Butts” Instagram was taken down, an account with the same epithet is online and has posted 23 photos in the past day–not just of the two men and their bare bottoms, but of other people who took similar photos. Nonetheless, it’s unclear if these posters are the same humankinds behind the original account.
