Chip Tsao has finally apologized.
After causing much stir, he was at the Philippine Consulate in Hong Kong to personally apologized for the very controversial article that he wrote. The Philippine Consulate has accepted his apology; although The Philippine Government hasn’t. And I’m not sure if the Filipino People has forgiven him too. I guess it is something that can be forgiven but not forgotten. In the first place, the article was way below the belt.
A Philippine Lawmaker said that Chip Tsao’s apology was an insult to the Filipino Intelligence. Maybe it was. Maybe it wasn’t. Well, it is his opinion.
The Bureau of Immigration has stated that Mr. Tsao is still blacklisted.
(There is a video of his apology. I’m just not sure where I can obtain a copy of it.)
My take on this:
He took time to go to the Philippine Consulate to personally apologize. All we wanted was a public apology. And that was what he did. We should accept it. I think we should end the issue already. Because the more we bash him, the more famous he becomes. Which is probably what he wanted to happen. We got the apology and he got the fame. Not fair but both sides got what they wanted.
On other blogs, people seem to still have not been satisfied with Mr Tsao apologizing twice.
Here’s a suggestion: If he dares to do it again, then we take it to the next level.
