Embarrassing footage of Thailand’s king wearing a crop top while sporting ‘fake’ tattoos have prompted authorities to threaten action against Facebook.
The video of King Maha Vajiralongkorn strolling around a shopping centre with a woman was widely shared on the social network.

Thanakorn Siripaiboon, 27, has been charged by police with lese majesty for a "satirical" Facebook post about the king and his dog, lawyer Pawinee Chumsri told AFP.
