‘Mad man’ royalist goes on rampages at airport, Siam Paragon mall (Video)

Sunday evening shopping at Siam Paragon was disrupted by splattered soda and flying shards of glass when an emotionally disturbed ultra-royalist erupted in a violent and disturbing declaration of his love for the monarchy.

Kaneshpitsanuthep “K 100 million” Chakkraphopmahadecha, who’s become infamous for volatile incidents that don’t seem to go punished, went into a frenzy pouring bottles of red soda onto himself as he paraded through the mall holding a framed portrait of King Vajiralongkorn and shouting incomprehensibly. 

In one moment captured on video, he violently threw a glass bottle onto the ground which shattered and sent broken glass flying into passers-by.

Just yesterday, witnesses said he was doing the same thing at Suvarnabhumi International Airport. Another video purportedly showed him being led away by airport security at around 3pm on Sunday.

That didn’t seem to slow him down. People last night criticized the luxury shopping mall’s security for failing to act quickly against Kaneshpitsanuthep, who has become known as K 100 Million due to his apparent large real estate wealth. 

Tabloid headlines have dubbed Kaneshpitsanuthep a “mad man.”

Several calls this morning to the Pathumwan Police went unanswered. A representative answering the phone at Siam Paragon this morning said they were “working on the issue.”

After this story was published, Siam Paragon management apologized in a statement Monday afternoon that said one person was injured. The mall insisted that its security team had the man immediately “under control.”

“We coordinated with the police at later time … there was one person injured by broken glass, whom we apologized to and will compensate for treatment,” the statement read.

In 2019, it appeared to be the same man who parked his Mercedes-Benz in front of the CentralwOrld shopping mall, where he loosed two snakes and cut himself with a knife. He also prostrated in front of a car with portraits of His Majesty the King laid out on top.
