A US comedy skit that makes fun of Thailand’s booming sex industry has angered the government, which is trying to block videos of the sketch on the internet.

The skit on the Saturday Night Live programme shows men learning phrases for use in Thailand’s notorious night-life.

Culture Minister Sonthaya Kunploem said. “We’re working with the foreign ministry to let the US know it is offensive and we have asked our information ministry to remove the clip.”
