Naked Celebs Cause Outrage In Thailand

snipshot_d4c3vht4qtn.jpgCelebrities and models in Thailand recently stripped for a magazine, but it’s actually nudity for a cause. They did it to raise money for a Buddhist temple which helps treat HIV/AIDS patients. The 30 photos is being published in the charity edition of entertainment magazine Fame this month, but not everyone’s happy about it. The country’s Ministry of Culture is livid that the celebrities had to get their kit off for a cause instead of raising money in a decent, fully-clothed manner.

Culture Minister Khaisri Sri-aroon on Friday called the project inappropriate, and urged the celebrities to use their fame in less provocative merit-making efforts.

‘Why didn’t the celebrities have their photos taken with their clothes on or dress in traditional Thai clothes instead,’ commented Prisana Pongtadsirikul, secretary-general of the National Culture Commission.

Thanks to the controversy sparked by the project, the AIDS hospice that was supposed to benefit from the donations opted to turn down the money. I’m sure a lot of people think that it’s not necessary to litter a campaign with naked stars, although it does help get a lot of attention and interest, but it seems a lot like the outraged groups are just being blind to a good cause.
