Rihanna may have been living it up on vacation in Thailand this weekend, but two young men are worse for the wear after her visit.

The pop star posed for an Instagram pic with a slow loris, an endangered animal native to Southeast Asia. Little did she know, the pic led to the swift arrest of a 20-year old and a 16-year old who were showing off the animals to tourists. The animals were taken away from the men, and the pair now faces up to four years in prison and a $1,300 fine.

“Phuket authorities were alerted to the picture (of Rihanna), and last night police arrested the two individuals who brought out the loris as a photo opportunity for tourists,” a Phuket district chief, Weera Kerdsirimongkon, said. “It’s like a cat-and-mouse game. But this time it’s bigger because a celebrity like Rihanna posted the picture, and there were more than 200,000 ‘likes’ from around the world."

Rihanna didn't waste a moment of her time there, living it up with other native animals--she played with a herd of elephants--and attending a racy show in the red light district.
