Don't be stupid while overseas

What a couple of morons. They will never be allowed back into Thailand.

People are looking at what we post on social media...might want to avoid offending the country you are visiting.

Sounds like they have been doing this all over the world.

The DaSilvas were charged with getting naked in public and fined $150 apiece. However, some Thai officials have told the media that there could be more serious charges. Officials are now seeking court approval to prosecute them on the Computer Crime Act for uploading pornographic pictures, Col. Jarupat Thongkomol said from the police station near the temple, Agence France-Press reported. They could face jail time.


Hope Thailand follows through on this and gives them jail time.

What many do not understand, despite the reputation of certain venues in Thailand, Thais are pretty conservative. Just like most that live in Louisiana are pretty conservative despite the small reputation of Bourbon street in NO.

We tend to slap people on the wrist when they act like the idiots they are.

However, not everywhere in the world is as weak as we choose to be with dealing with said idiots.

I hope they get some good jail time and don't get any political niceness shown to them so that once again they can get rewarded for being classless morons.

Lmao they called up and asked for help from their queer city council man.

As they say in Thailand, "555555555555".

In Thai, the number 5 is pronounced "Ha". Say 555555 in Thai and what does is sound like?

This incident is being used by the Government to remind all Farangs(Thai for Foreigners) to respect the culture and customs of LOS(Land of Smiles). Contrary to what many believe Thailand is a conservative society. Also, most Temples requires men to wear long pants(preferably with the buttocks covered). The "5555" was really good.

These two really need to hit the knees praying they dont get thrown into a thai jail, jails in thailand are known to be beds of warmth and affection

These two should also at the least have waited till they got safely home before uploading anything, but hey, like they say in thailand "sorng farang baa mak jing loei"

After Vietnam, the US military was asked to leave Thailand by 1976. I was the JA in 1/1 SFG when we got back in, in late 1984. AMEMB immediately asked me to visit a US Army prisoner and I did so regularly until 1987. He got indebted to the Jackson-Atkinson military retiree gang who were smuggling heroin into the US. His name is Jasper Myrick, Jr. The story starts at page 25 in the attached DTIC pdf. Thai prison is a cruel place to be, although I observed that the Aussie chicks visiting their imprisoned boyfriends were interesting

Free At Last: Two American men who were arrested in Thailand for posting naked photos to Instagram have reportedly been released from jail and are heading home to San Diego.

Joseph Dasilva, 38, and Travis Dasilva, 36, were arrested at Bangkok’s Don Mueang International Airport last month after images posted to their ‘Travelling Butts’ Instagram account showed them dropping their trousers at various religious sites around Thailand.

The photos, one of which showed the men with their trousers down at Wat Arun temple, went viral and quickly caught the attention of the Thai authorities who arrested the married couple as they tried to depart Thailand on November 28th."

Maybe a parade in San Diego?
