A Thai ”net idol” has been fined after performing a nude strip show live on a Facebook stream.
Ponpan Mayple Promdum, 26, had more than 150,000 people tuning in as she performed a dance in silver underwear on her bed.
But during the live stream to promote a betting website the model stunned viewers – including children – when the removed her clothes.
The footage went viral and was seen by police who arrested the ”product reviewer” on computer crime charges.
Ponpan, who uses the name Mayple Pink Pink, yesterday (Wednesday) made a grovelling apology after admitting violating Thailand’s Computer Crime Act and accepting 500thb (11gbp) fine for distributing and profiting from indecent material.
She said: ”I do not want other net idol pretties and models to fall into the same trap as me.
”I am very sorry for damaging the image of Thai women and I will not do this again. I hope that people can forgive me.”
Mayple said she was paid 3,000thb (69gbp) to perform a 30 minute long sexy show to promote a gambling page.
Lt. Col. Santapet Nhootong of the Technology Crime Suppression Division said she had been brought into the station in Bangkok, Thailand and accepted the fine.
He added: ”We charged her, and she confessed to all the charges that she did it.”
The police chief said that officers would be monitoring Facebook live for other sexy dancing offences.
Performing dances over Facebook is a common side-line for amateur models in Thailand who can sometimes earn up to 5,000gbp a month for a couple of hours work a day.
