Last year, I wrote a post about racist bloggers in Singapore.
You’d think that after that episode, bloggers would be more careful about what they blog about. I mean, come on, it would be pretty naive to still hang on to the notion that blogs are for your own eyes only, and that they have no real consequences beyond the virtual world.
But, just yesterday, another Singaporean blogger has been arrested for putting up a racist blog. The 24 year-old goes by the onscreen moniker, Fragrance Prince.
When I tried to access the Fragrance Prince blog, I was given the message that the blog is only for invited readers. Looks like he’s wised up a little.
Anyway, some other bloggers managed to get hold of his so-called apology on his blog before he restricted access to it, and according to them, this is what Fragrance Prince said,
Quoted from http://fragranceprince.blogspot.com
I would like to express my sincere apologies for any misinterpretation to my blog entry.
I regret having mentioned this entry in my blog which I didn’t expect it to turn out to be like this, I should have been more mindful.
Once again, I am sincerely apologetic for the recent events that had happen.
Well, apology or no apology, Fragrance Prince’s words have certainly caused a stink on the blogosphere and beyond.
