Thai national faces deportation for insulting Filipinos online

The Bureau of Immigration was revising the visa status of Prasertsri Kosin, who wrote under the name Koko Narak, a spokeswoman was quoted as saying by the Sun Star online.

He would be deported if found to be undesirable, she said.

Kosin has since posted an apology. "I am very sorry what I've done or posted the racist comments," he wrote, attributing the misunderstanding to "playfulness," Inquirer.net reported.

Kosin's Facebook page was not displaying any of the activities or posts on the account.
