Rihanna posed with a loris in Thailand. Innocent enough, but it came with big, unforeseen consequences.
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.
