Online campaign to suspend the visa of American YouTuber Nathan Bartling, better known as “My Mate Nate” and oust him from Thailand now gained over 65,000 supporters within five days.
The online campaign followed widespread criticism of his prank videos in Thailand are considered inappropriate and a violation of Thai laws. The videos were uploaded on his My mate Nate YouTube channel which drew more than 3 million subscribers.
His latest stunt that drew outcry from the Thai public was a video clip featuring him flattening coins on the rail track. The State Railway of Thailand has already filed a complaint of property trespassing.
Although he would offer apology to the Thai societies, but public outcry remains.
Latest show of dissatisfaction of his behaviour is the online campaign by Pichaporn Araikul to oust him of the country.
She urged all people to join the online campaign by signing in to support the call for the government to suspend his visa and oust him out of the country immediately.
She accused Bartling of creating public unrest, disrespect of Thai laws, and committing inappropriate acts, including flattening coins on rail tracks, testing Thai people the use of English language, animal cruelty.
All these violations have been uploaded on the social media which is accessible to the public and could set bad examples for children and youths, and could have cultural impact, she said on her online campaign.
Pichaporn sets target of 75,000 supporters, but only five days after the online campaign was launched, over 65,000 people have signed in to support.
Meanwhile, the National Telecommunications and Broadcasting Commission yesterday held a meeting with internet service providers for cooperation in requesting Facebook and YouTube to block an additional 3,000 inappropriate URLs within August 7 after having earlier asked them to block 6,900 URLs.
