SINGAPORE- I would like to extend a sincere apology to the people of Singapore.
In the past 24 hours, due to a security breach of my personal Facebook page and the misuse of an old video by unknown sources, my family, especially my Singaporean son, have suffered extreme emotional and verbal abuse online.
It must be made extremely clear that a YouTube video of me, with my son in the background, was not posted in response to any recent events.
This video was made weeks prior and has been misused to portray me as unrepentant. Police investigations into this matter, including death threats my family have received, are ongoing.
I deeply regret having offended and disrespected the people of Singapore. I have the highest respect and regard for Singapore and the good people of Singapore; this is my home.
My five-year-old son is an innocent party in this unfortunate and extremely stressful situation. I wish for nothing more than to be forgiven for my poor judgment and to be given a second chance to rebuild the trust people have had in me as a resident of this wonderful country.
