Amy Cheong says sorry, no racism intended in posts on Malay weddings
The woman who posted offensive comments on her personal Facebook page on Malay weddings at void decks says she's terribly sorry.
Ms Amy Cheong said in a statement on Monday evening that she's aware of the pain she has caused through her insensitive remarks on social media.
"Please see me as a person offering my most sincere apology," she said.
Ms Cheong said there was no racism intended in her posts.
She said she was trying to rest and the noise was affecting her greatly; and she understands that this was not a valid reason to post the comments.
She added that she was wrong and repentant.
Ms Cheong said as soon she realised how it has affected Singaporeans, she promptly took down her posts and apologised through Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp.
Ms Cheong, who was an Assistant Director of Membership Department in the National Trades Union Congress, was sacked on Monday, a day after she made her posts on Facebook.
