Suu Kyi Porn Site Sparks Outrage

June 8, 2009

A pro-Burmese junta blog site has sparked outrage among Burmese exiles and Burma observers by posting pornographic cartoons of Aung San Suu Kyi on its site over the past few weeks.

The blog site, which appears to have been authorized by the Ministry of Information, has plagiarized cartoons, including at least one belonging to The Irrawaddy’s cartoonist Harn Lay, and has superimposed figures such as US President Barack Obama and “Inya Lake Swimmer” John William Yettaw into images depicting sexual acts and lewd gestures.

Postcards of the pictures have also been circulating Rangoon, the sources said.

“When I saw the images, I wanted to kill the person who created them,” said a Burmese woman based in Singapore.

A person who wrote to The Irrawaddy said, “What can I say except these people [who designed the cartoons] are utterly and unspeakably low.”

“This indicates their level of maturity,” said a Burmese woman in Melbourne, Australia.

According to sources in the former capital, inappropriate slurs against the Nobel Peace Prize laureate were also aired on Burmese radio last week. Rangoon-based state-run station Padauk Myay FM reportedly launched a program titled “Yettaw and the Pretty Girl.”
