TWO YouTubers have landed themselves in hot water after they cross-dressed and posed for lewd photos in front of Istana Bukit Serene in Johor Baru, China Press reported.
One had donned see-through white lingerie with his grey underwear partially exposed, while the other wore a custard tank crop top with matching shorts, exposing his blue underwear.
The duo was seen hugging and posing sexily together in the pictures.
In a short video, they also shouted that they had arrived in Johor Baru.
One of them shared several of their “sexy” pictures on his Facebook page.
After Internet users slammed the duo for disrespecting the royal house, they then pixelated some of the pictures, hiding the iconic crown landmark.
However, this irked even more Internet users who lambasted them further.
Yesterday, police arrested two men over the case.
> The daily also reported that motorists will face up to 10 years in jail and a million baht (RM130,000) fine if they hit and injure an elephant on a highway in the Muang district in Thailand.
A total of 35 warning signs of wild elephants crossing the 15km section of Highway 1399 have been installed to remind motorists.
The new rules, according to local reports, follow a number of road accidents resulting in wild elephants being seriously injured.
The warning signs also set a speed limit of 60kph along the highway.
According to the local authority, motorists could not use the excuse that they were not aware of the new rules with so many warning signs installed.
Thailand’s Natural Resources and Environment Ministry had ordered the wildlife sanctuary office to intensify measures to protect wildlife and prosecute those who break the law.
Under the new law, convicted motorists are being made to pay major compensation for each elephant harmed.
> A man who had not visited his parents for many years suddenly appeared after contracting Covid-19, Oriental Daily reported.
The man in his 40s and from Balakong, Selangor, however, did not tell his parents he had tested positive.
The incident was discovered by a neighbour who has been caring for his aged parents – one of them is blind and the other has problems walking.
The neighbour informed a local leader who then alerted the Health Ministry.
The man was initially hostile and uncooperative when health frontliners came to see him.
He only relented after they threatened to alert the police.
