A famous actress has to report the police after accidentally posting an image of her boyfriend’s genitals on her Instagram account. 
On 9 January 2018, the Technology Crime Suppression Division asked actress Apinya Sakuljaroensuk, 27, to report on 12 January to hear accusations against her. The authorities accuse her of importing pornographic images into a computer system, a violation of the controversial Computer Crimes Act. 
On 4 January, Apinya posted on her Instagram account an image of her boyfriend’s penis. Although she immediately deleted the post, the image had already gone viral. She later apologised for the controversial picture, saying that she did not notice the genitals at the moment she posted it.  
She added that she planned to share the image only with close friends on her private account, but accidentally posted it on the public one.
