In his post, Thompson said:
"Hi everyone, I have a job based in Beung Kan (North Thailand). Native Speakers Only! No Filipinos sorry to say. Actually I will not apologize! I DO NOT WANT FILIPINOS WORKING FOR ME! IF YOU DO NOT LIKE THIS (F**K OFF)"
After receiving several hate comments and even death threats, Craig finally broke his silence and issued a letter of apology addressed to the Filipino community. And again, another "my account was hacked, stolen [insert lame excuse here]".
Thompson said that his mobile phone and wallet were stolen last Thursday when he went out with his friends and fiancee.
Below is the letter of apology which Thompson sent through PinoyThaiyo.
"I would like to send my deepest apology to the Filipino community. These posts were not made by myself at all and i feel deeply that this has happened to you and me. These racist comments should not be tolerated. I myself have a fiance that is Thai, So I know i am not racist. Be that as it may, I still feel that those posts were not acceptable. I have many Filipino friends and everyone knows me, that I am a warm and a honest person. I do feel this was act against me, maybe even someone wanted this to happen and maliciously attacked me in this manner. I truly hope you all can understand and accept my deepest apologies.
With all of this Myself and my family have been recieving death threats from readers and by sharing the posts I feel I have been unfairly judged without the facts. The fact is nobody has contacted me to ask why you posted these things, but instead they just accepted these things as facts. I’m not asking for special treatment, but only to be judged by the full facts. Not just one sided.
Please remember that myself and my family are walking the streets with people who don’t know the full facts. People have posted my face and my fiances face all over the net, and this has put both me and my family at risk.
Again I would like to send out my deepest appologizes. I hope you all can understand where I am coming from and that I understand how you all feel.
Thank you for taking the time to read my side of the story. God Bless
Do you believe in his excuse that his phone and wallet was stolen and someone used it against him? We've heard a lot of this lame excuse already. You decide.
