Rihanna’s millions of social-media followers probably appreciated her diligent documentation of her recent adventures in Thailand, but the locals who are getting arrested over her posts might not be quite so happy. A few weeks ago, the singer posted an Instagram photo of herself playing with a slow loris, leading to the arrest of two men for possession of protected animals.

And now, one of her tweets has led to another arrest, this time of a bar owner responsible for a lewd sex show on the island of Phuket. Her tweet shared some, um, interesting details about the show:

The bar owner now faces charges of obscenity and operating an entertainment venue without a permit, the Associated Press reports.

“Authorities found out about this bar the morning after Rihanna tweeted about it, but we were not able to catch them violating the law until Saturday night,” local district chief Weera Kerdsirimongkon told the AP. “We had been waiting for them and finally caught them red-handed.” He added that the owner could be looking at a month in prison and a fine of up to $1,900.

Now that three (three!) people have been arrested as a direct result of Rihanna’s social-media updates, it’s time to seriously address the question whether she’s in cahoots with the Thai government.

Sounds like they need to stop allowing her in their place of business.

Yep... saw that same type show about 1989, popping balloons from across the stage with darts shot out, juggling ping pong balls. Really kind of scary.

@okeekaybee Uh, dude...  She don't know you.  She don't care about you.  She don't listed to you.  Seems to me you're way too invested in the doings of someone you never met, don't know, won't ever meet and will never even speak to.  Why don't you up your meds and turn off TMZ?  Seems to me your psychotic obsession needs a break,
