Photos of a foreign woman begging with her young child have caused a ruckus online amongst Thai citizens.
The images show a woman who is believed to be from Russia attempting to sell photos of her child in the Chutuchak area of Bangkok.
The young woman claims to have been left penniless after her husband left her and is trying to raise funds for a plane ticket to leave Thailand.
The photos were posted on Facebook and were shared over 17,000 times and divided opinions amongst the Thai online community.
Some questioned how a husband and a father could do this to his family while some had little to know sympathy for the woman comparing her to the likes of ‘beg-packers’ who beg for money to fund their traveling.
One of the main talking points was if it was legal for the woman to beg in Thailand and urged agency officials to step in for the sake of her child.
One Facebook user sensibly pointed out that the woman should seek help from her embassy.
The incident had been reported to local police who are said to be trying to assist the woman.
