Images on Line app referenced royal scandals and rumours in country which has strict laws against insulting monarchy
A set of emojis satirising Thailands royal family has been removed by the messaging app Line, in a country where discussion of the monarchy is tightly controlled by a draconian royal insult law.
Cached web pages of Lines sticker store seen on Thursday showed the cartoon images were available on Tuesday afternoon, but have since been deleted.
Thailands lese-majesty legislation is the one of the worlds harshest, carrying a 15-year jail sentence for an offence.
It outlaws criticism of the king, queen and his anointed successor, but is broadly interpreted to silence even tangential references to members of the family and the institution.
Most of the emojis referenced scandals and rumours that have trailed the monarchy despite efforts to control its image inside Thailand.
Other more benign stickers showed royals partaking in hobbies often publicised by the palaces media arm, such as King Bhumibol Adulyadej playing a saxophone.
Line, which is similar to Whatsapp or Viber, is the most popular messaging platform in Thailand. The countrys ministry of information did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Japan-owned Line has its own animated stickers that users can send each other, but it also allows people to make their own and sell them through its online store.
The royal family stickers were created by a user, not the company.
On its website, Line said it reviews (sticker) submissions against our sales criteria before they go live.
The number of lese-majesty prosecutions has soared under the ultra-royalist junta that seized power in a 2014 coup, with many Thais targeted for social media postings deemed defamatory.
The royal family has become an increasingly sensitive topic as 88-year-old Bhumibol, the worlds longest reigning monarch, has spent months in hospital in poor health.

WASHINGTON- President Barack Obama and other Democrats on Tuesday confiscated on Equal Pay Day — a symbolic event dramatizing how much longer it takes a woman to earn as much as a man — to tribunal women voters and call out Republican for inaction on the issue.
Obama dedicated a new national monument to women’s equality and pushed Congress to pass legislation. He suggested he’s encouraged by motion toward full gender equality in many arenas — including corporate boardrooms, professional sports and presidential politics.
“If we truly value fairness then America should be a level playing field, ” the president told, as he joined House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, Maryland Democratic Sen. Barbara Mikulski and other Democrat at the Sewall-Belmont House and Museum in D.C ., the onetime home of the National Women’s Party now designated as Belmont-Paul Women’s Equality National Monument. Alva Belmont and Alice Paul were figures in the women’s the same rights and suffrage movements.
The Democrats’ focus on Equal Pay goes amid a presidential campaign where the Republican front-runner, Donald Trump, has alienated female voters in droves, to move to GOP fears he could diminish the party’s standing with that key constituency for years to come. Yet once again this year, Obama and Democratic lawmakers trumpet their equal pay proposals at press conference and briefings, Republicans have little to offer in return.
“We feel we shouldn’t be playing identity politics, we should be working together to strengthen families, ” told Sarah Chamberlain, president of the Republican Main Street Partnership, which advocates for pragmatic, center-right policies.
Democrats support legislation requiring employers to show pay disparity is not based on gender, among other steps. The bill, which passed the House when it was under Democratic control but was blocked by Senate Republican, builds on the first statute Obama signed as chairperson, the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, is targeted at making it easier for women to sue over wage discrimination.
For their portion, the Republicans who control the House and Senate have announced no plans to act on legislation addressing pay injustice, even though a few GOP lawmakers are pushing bills on such issues. Sen. Deb Fischer, R-Neb ., said she is hoping for Democratic is supportive of her narrowly focused bill letting employees to share wage datum. GOP Sen. Kelly Ayotte said she is working with House Republican to get on board with her broader bill, modeled on one that passed in her home state of New Hampshire.
“To say that Republicans don’t care about equal pay, that’s simply ludicrous that anybody even says that, ” Fischer told. “Everybody cares about equal pay. That’s a value that we all share.”
Republican women dispute the notion that “women’s issues” are separate from any other issues , noting that women care strongly about national security, the drug epidemic and other matters not specifically related to their gender. With the GOP presidential primary season veering chaotically toward a contested convention, most Capitol Hill Republicans are also avoiding taking any steps that could connect them to the mess, including the perception that they are acting in response to Trump.
“I just put these in the context of good government and the right thing to do. I don’t put it in the context of anything else, ” Ayotte said. “I mean I’ve been working on this well before this presidential race.”
Yet the result is that the one group arguably best positioned to act as a counterweight to Trump with women voters — female Republican elected official — has been largely silent, allowing his controversial statements on females to go unanswered even as Democrats look likely to elevate the first major-party female presidential nominee in Hillary Clinton.
On Tuesday, Obama hinted he views Clinton’s campaign as historic progression — although he has not formally endorsed her bid.
He said he hoped visitors to the museum will someday be astonished that there was ever a period when women could not vote.
“I want them to be astonished that there was ever a time when women earned less than humen for doing the same work. I want them to be astonished that there was ever a time when women were vastly outnumbered in the boardroom or in Congress, or there was ever a time when a woman had never sat in the Oval Office, ” he said. “I don’t know how long it will take to get there, but I know we’re getting closer to that day.”
Chamberlain spent months traveling the country with female GOP members of Congress, meeting with women voters to hear their concerns. Although women still stimulate on average 79 pennies for every dollar men are paid, equal pay didn’t make the listing when her group released its policy agenda in January. Drug addiction and mental health topped girls voters’ fears, Chamberlain said, and lawmakers involved with her group are pushing legislation on those issues and others, including workplace flexibility for new mommies and caregivers.
“Equal pay doesn’t come up, I’m not saying it’s not an issue but it doesn’t come up, ” Chamberlain told. As for Democrats’ focus on the topic, Chamberlain said: “I think it’s identity politics, I genuinely do.”
Clinton herself is participating in a round table discussion on the issue in New York City Tuesday, hosted by task website Glassdoor. Members of the U.S. women’s football team recently filed a wage-discrimination objection against U.S. Soccer, and actress Jennifer Lawrence has spoken out about stimulating less than her male co-stars, describing more attention to the issue than it has had in the past.
“These were not always major issues in presidential campaigns but “they il be” major issues today, ” told Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y ., who is hosting a briefing on pay equity Tuesday with actress Patricia Arquette. Of Trump, who had to recant after suggesting girls should be punished for having abortions, Maloney added: “I think that he is in the Middle Ages.”
Trump himself was questioned by a voter at a rally last fall who asked if she would make as much as a man if Trump were elected president. “I respect women and I’m going to take care of women, ” said Trump. “You’re going to make the same if you do as good a job.”
