CHON BURI – Photos posted to Facebook of an almost nude waitress at a coffee shop in Chon Buri’s Sattahip district trigged a storm of criticism from mostly women users of the site.
The post, by a Facebook user with the account name of Krua Sahapat-Laem Chabang at 7am Saturday, drew over 3,500 comments in just five hours.
It also drew over 21,000 reactions and was shared over 8,800 times in the five-hour period.
The photos show a beautiful young woman wearing underwear and no bras. She has covered her front with a barista saffron, leaving little to the imagination.
“Now, foreigners perceive Thailand as brothels. Please have understanding for working people in the profession [when] you use this kind of bad promotion. Please understand how they will be perceived.”
And user Arisara Suwattanakorn posted: “You don’t have to undress to promote a coffee shop. People come to drink coffee, not come to a massage parlour. It’s shameful for both the model and the shop owner.”
