When Taiwan announced an export ban on masks in late January, Taiwanese host Dee Hsu went on social media to criticise the decision. “We’re all humans living on the same earth. Not helping each other out isn’t something that humans should do. Without love, this earth will become even more terrible. Hatred is even scarier than viruses," she wrote.
Her post did not sit well with her fellow Taiwanese, and she was quickly lambasted by netizens who reminded her that it was more important for Taiwan to have a healthy supply of masks for its people before trying to help others.
