I’m so sorry as a Korean. Please note that it was only a small number of young Koreans who said violent things to the Philippines. I’m sorry, Philippines. We love Philippines. The Philippines is such a wonderful country. #SorryToFilipinospic.twitter.com/I6karRBOCc
Some Filipinos appreciated the messages and responded with understanding and compassion.
Saying sorry in a sincere and respectful way is what we wanted. We’re humans too. Deserves to be respected and loved.Apology accepted in behalf of my co-filos.Let’s spread love and kindness everyday. After all,we’re still bestfriends and family
Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community.
Even a $1 contribution goes a long way. Thank you for everyone’s support. We love you all and can’t appreciate you guys enough.
