“[Expletive] did I read this wrong? This despicable minister does not have a single shred of humanity left. [Look at] what’s happening now. You b******, how can you be so inhumane? I hope this piece of news is fake,” she continued on to write.
Her post was soon deleted but not before screenshots of it were circulated online. [P/S: Is it just us or does Christine need new friends?] She was then blasted by netizens for not caring about the lives of her fellow Taiwanese. Her husband Blackie Chen then stood up for her and he also ended up getting criticised for "blindly taking (his) wife's side".
A day later (Jan 28), Christine wrote another post, this time, on her public Facebook page, apologising for her actions.
“I am extremely sorry for causing a disturbance with the emotional outburst I had on Facebook, I was only hoping that we could be more caring as a society. I hope to be able to apologise calmly, and will work hard to become even better as a person. I’m sorry! For causing everyone to worry, as well as troubling you guys,” she wrote.
Shortly after she uploaded her apology, she updated her social media pages with yet another post. In it, one of her parents advised, "You don't have to change your stance just because of what the people around you say. Your heart knows what is right and wrong (...) Think about your family. You have to be strong for them!"
This was regarded as Christine's way of taking back her apology, which further angered netizens.
