Rihanna

Photo Triggers Arrest

Over Cute, Furry, Deadly Creatures

Rihanna flirted with death and then triggered arrests after posting a pic of an adorable little animal ... that can kill you.

Rihanna was in Phuket, Thailand and posed with a loris.  Seems innocent enough.

Here's the problem.  The critter is an endangered animal indigenous to Southeast Asia and there's a law that says you can't charge tourists money to take pics with endangered primates.

Rihanna Instagrammed the photo and people started bitching in Phuket.  Authorities corralled the 2 guys who took the photo -- ages 16 and 20 -- and busted them.

FYI -- Loris carry poison that can be deadly.  When they get pissed off they release the toxins from their elbow, put the juice in their mouth and if it touches humans they can go into anaphylactic shock.

P.S.  Rihanna also went to some sex shows.  That can kill you too.

Why people think Rihanna is naturally to blamed for this is beyond me...well not really beyond me. But dislike for someone is not an excuse for stupidity. The boys knew they should not have been in possession of the endangered species - RIhanna did not. In Thailand she has been gifted and attended ceremonies involving elephants and other exotic animals. This was not outside of the norm, and poison aside,, they really are cute and tempting to photograph. The right people were arrested. Rihanna and others will know better next time.

Speaking of ghetto trash, there's Rihanna again. Always trying to get attention. The poor animal is more apt to catch something from her than the other way around.
