Lady Gaga turned heads in Thailand when she tied the country's flag to a motorcycle which she rode onto the stage at her concert wearing a bikini and traditional Thai headdress.
Thailand's Culture Ministry complained of desecration to their flag, calling it "offensive" and "inappropriate" as well as disrespectful to the entire nation. The Ministry is filing a formal police complaint over the matter.
Gaga previously upset Thai authorities when she tweeted that she planned to buy a fake Rolex at one of Bangkok's numerous street markets.
An official with the Ministry of Intellectual Property says that the comments were unhelpful to U.S./Thai relations, particularly because of the U.S. stance on intellectual property vis-à-vis smaller nations.
