Pokwang, reposted an open letter apologizing to Chinese tourists and citizens in the Philippines for the discrimination they are receiving and experiencing, on her social media platform that is Instagram last January 31.

“MAS PINAGPAPALA ANG NAGPAPAKUMBABA PEACE [EVERYONE] (The humble are more blessed. Peace, everyone),”Pokwang commented.



The letter, issued by “Netizens of the Philippines,” read: “To all Chinese [tourists] or [citizens:] We apologize for the harsh words and the rejection we have made you feel.”


“The Philippines and [its] people are scared not because of you, but because we are a poor country that will suffer if ever it occurs in our land,” it added.

The open letter noted that most Filipinos “do not have money even to afford to eat [three] meals a day.”

“We pray for the healing of everyone in your country [especially] the children and for the benefit of everybody…
