Bangkok, Oct 14 (EFE).- Thai authorities have arrested the owner of the bar with a live sex show that inspired racy comments on Twitter by singer Rihanna.

"I'm traumatized!!!" Rihanna tweeted last month after seeing the show at the Season bar on the resort island of Phuket. "Only in #Thailand."

More than 32 million people follow the singer on Twitter.

Warunyoo Jornmuang, owner of the Season bar, "was arrested for operating an entertainment venue without a permit and for providing a lewd show. The case was handed over to the Patong Police for further action," Kathu District Chief Veera Kerdsirimongkol told the Phuket Gazette.

"It was the result of the visit by Rihanna. The authorities will be more strict towards inappropriate shows or wildlife attractions," he said.

Rihanna's visit to Thailand, part of her Diamonds World Tour, had already sparked a run-in with the cops for two other people who took her picture holding a slow loris - a protected primate species - in Phuket's Bangla Road.

Rihanna posted on Instagram a photo showing her cuddling with the slow loris, tweeting: "Look who was talkin dirty to me!"
