Why is the nation of Thailand suing Facebook? It involves a crop top and fake tattoos

Pat and Stu

Thailand is suing Facebook because a video of its king wearing a crop top on a trip to the mall is being circulated on the social network. The country wants the images censored because unflattering pictures of King Maha Vajiralongkorn are illegal in Thailand.

The Thai Internet Service Provider Association has emailed Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg asking that Facebook block posts with the illegal images of the king. The video in question was reportedly filmed in Munich in July 2016. In Thailand, insulting the monarchy is a crime that can be punished by as much as 15 years in prison.

On Wednesday’s “Pat & Stu,” the guys discussed this attempt at censorship as well as crop tops as a fashion choice.

Stu Burguiere made two important points: First, that the king is definitely wearing a shortened shirt or crop top, and second, that he seems to be sporting some fake tattoos in the video.
