ell, this is certainly not typical news.
An American couple has been arrested in Thailand for displaying their bare butts at a sacred temple in Thailand. The married couple run an Instagram account with 14,000 followers called "The Traveling Butts" where they post photos of themselves all over the world, their bums proudly on display. Since their arrest, the account has been deleted. The damage, however, has already been done.
The men exposed their buttocks at the famous Temple of Dawn or Wat Arun in Bangkok.
Regarded as one of the most stunning temples in Bangkok, it’s situated on the west of the Chao Phraya River.
It’s a major tourist attraction in the capital of Thailand.
There are over 31,200 Buddhist temples spread throughout Thailand, but Wat Arun is one of the most majestic.
The temple is named after Aruna, the Indian God of Dawn. The main feature of the temple is the prang, which is encrusted with gorgeous porcelain.
Wat Arun is a really big deal, and extremely sacred.
It's not a place where you decide to take an Instagram pic of your bare behind and post it for the entire world to see.
Which is exactly what Joseph Dasilva, 38, and Travis Dasilva, 36, did.
The couple is from San Diego and were arrested by immigration officials at Bangkok’s Don Mueang International Airport.
The Dasilvas were charged with public indecency.
According to the Bangkok Post, a spokesman for immigration police explained that the men admitted to posting the photos at Wat Arun with their pants pulled down.
Ummm….guys, listen. This was so easily avoidable.
Don't pull your pants down in sacred Buddhist temples!
It shouldn’t seem like that hard of a thing to do, but you’d be surprised.
Both men had to pay a fine of 5,000 baht which comes out to around $150. They remain in custody, however.
