Ambassador Pink Tosh apologizes for discriminatory comments, Singapore News News


Local actor Tosh Ang apologized after being called on for discrimination.

On Wednesday, the 29-year-old was appointed ambassador to the annual Pink Dot event this year, which aims to raise awareness of issues affecting the everyday lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and LGBTQ people.

The theme of the event this year is "anti-discrimination."

Yesterday, Facebook uses Sarah and Yep to express her surprise at Jang's appointment when she posted screenshots of some of his tweets for 2010-2010.

The tweets by Zhang, who also goes by the name of Rock Marker, made some discriminating remarks about LGBTQ people, including their physical appearance.

Pink Dot published a message in which he reads his words "homophobic and merging". He said: "The Tosh Tosh Aang between 2010 and 2013 that appeared today, only a day after we call him one of our Fink Dot 11 embassy, ​​very unfortunate, the damage and damage that this language can make them too familiar to us."

The statement added that Pink Dot is reaching out to Jang to clarify his position and discuss further actions.

In a post on Facebook, Ms. Yip said she was not asking him to remove his role, but it was important for someone in his job to be responsible.

Jang, known for his role in the series "Oh Boys for Men", answered her position and apologized for the tweets.

He said: "I would like to personally apologize to all members of the LGBTQ community for hurting them with my insensitive tweets from years ago, and I take full responsibility for my hurtful words and I would like to apologize to you and all those who have been hurt."

The Pink Dot event, now in its 11th year, is scheduled to take place on June 29 in Hong Lim Park.
