Wait, is this real life?
According to Sri Lanka President, Maithripala Sirisena, Enrique Iglesias‘ concert promoters deserve to be badly beaten.
And not only does the Prez want the promoters brutally punished, he also wants the assault to be executed with poisonous sting ray tails.
WHAT THE WHAT.
But before we go any further, let’s backtrack to why Sirisena wants the poor promoters attacked…
Apparently, Maithripala was NOT thrilled to learn that female concert goers tossed their bras on stage during Enrique’s December 20 performance in Sri Lanka.
Plus, the president was doubly pissed when he heard the eager fans also attempted to kiss Iglesias.
Um, we’re not really drawing the connection between the events and the EXTREME punishment.
The president said of his crazy decision:
“This is most uncivilized behavior that goes against our culture. I don’t advocate that these uncivilized women who removed their brassieres should be beaten with toxic stingray tails, but those who organized such an event should be.”
“Uncivilized women”? Inneresting….
Honestly, we’re not too too surprised by this scandal considering UN Human Rights Commissioner Navanethem Pillay said of his 2013 visit:
“The war may have ended in Sri Lanka, but in the meantime democracy has been undermined and the rule of law eroded.”
So, what do YOU think of this scary situation?
