Malaysiakini : SAMMY CHAN APOLOGIZED PART 3

Please refer to PART 1 and PART 2 before continue reading PART 3

PART 3


9) Oct 3, 2008. About 1.00 pm. An article appear on MAKKEZ website title Amoi’s issue in MalaysiaKini. He wrote that the infamous “Amoi and her racist post issue” which was exaggerated furiously a few days back has now made its way to MalaysiaKini.com.

10) Oct 3, 3.06 pm. Sammy Chan issued a statement in her blog asking for forgiveness. She posted her apology on her website OFFICIAL APOLOGY and called on everyone to forgive her for her shortsighted outburst in a Sept 23 posting.

11) Oct 3, 2008. At about 4.00 pm. An article appear on Raged Indian website again with a title Amoi - Unexpected ending.


He wrote that the news that he (Durai-RagedIndian), Makkez, and Naga highlighted about the Amoi became a major issue.

He said that he just came through this posting from Makkez blog. Never expected this though . But then , he said that she needs to face the co-sequences. In his last statement he updated his blog and he wrote :-

Update : Guys, she had updated her blog with another apology.

This latest one seems to be very sincere. No matter what , she is no politician, and she is young. She would regret this her whole life and it would be a good lesson to the rest of us. Let us forgive and forget. About the part of police action towards her, obviously she has to face it . What’s wrong is wrong.


12) Oct 3, 6.06 pm. An article appear again on Malaysiakini title Blogger apologises over controversial remarks by Athi Veranggan Oct 3, 08 6:06pm. This time the article appear with Sammy Chan photo on it.

During that time many bloggers didn't pay a lot of attention pertaining to that matter. But after Malaysiakini posted it in the evening article, the engine started to move even faster on her blog.

13) When contacted by Malaysiakini, she says :- “I offer an unconditional apology to every single person out there whom I've offended. I'll not be unfair to other races again and I'll learn to only get angry at those who really hurt me instead of generalising them according to race.”

“I did not really mean to stir racial sentiments or offend the Indian community,” “I did not expect my personal comments to become a national racial issue and invoke such a major public outburst. I’m extremely sorry for the whole controversy caused by my immature and angry remarks."

“I sincerely and honestly apologise to all Malaysians, not just Indians, as my comments have offended them,” Chan said she was prepared to cooperate with the police in their investigation and said she would even personally apologise to Hindraf national coordinator RS Thanenthiran over her posting.


14) RS Thanenthiran said Hindraf would accept Chan’s apology and he issued a statement :-


“We understand now that it was a ‘spur of the moment’ outburst. We sympathise with her loss of her phone. We hope that the lesson learnt from the controversy will help her to be more careful in future.’

15) Sammy said her blog was swarmed by at least 9,000 visits since Malaysiakini reported the issue this morning. The visibly upset blogger is now contemplating to suspend her ‘Life is a drama’ blog “until things have cooled off”, adding that she was a bit worried of being detained under the Internal Security Act.


“I’m just a young and a fresh graduate. I hope the whole controversy will not affect my future,” she lamented.

16) From 7.15 pm when I visited her website, she has about 18,500 visitors or hits. During that time I posted a comment on her article and she accepted it.

My comment was at number 17, but by midnight her comments jumps to 52 comments but some of the comments need her approval first then only can publish inside her comments. By midnight when I was following her comments, her hits has jump to around 25,840 hits in just 6 to 7 hours.

17) Oct 4, 2008. Around 1.45 am she closed her blog and put her blog as "This blog is open to invited readers only".

The moral of this whole article PART 1, PART 2 and PART 3 is to tell us that :-

"Bloggers should be careful with their words.. No doubt that blogs are for sharing your life and fun, your opinions and remarks would cause a big impact on the society.. Blogs nowadays are no longer just a tool for leisure and fun, but they are also the medium with tremendous influence to effect great changes." (Gaffe -by Kai Chi)

RS Thanenthiran said Hindraf would accept Chan’s apology. Yes it takes a great man to forgive and forgets. Let the matter rest in peace henceforth.
Hope that we are all unlike UNMO. Namawee apologizes and was accepted but they still use police to pursue him. It appears that those who accepted the apology aren't genuine. In those cases apologies don't help.

Hi everyone,

She has apologised unconditionally. She is obviously distressed and remorseful.

Since she has learned a lesson and she is still so young, let's all accept her apology and leave her alone to resume her life. All of us do err at times!

Her example and experience is also a lesson to all of us to be always careful of our words uttered when under duress and anger, lest they cause disunity in our multiethnic, multicultural and multireligious society.

Malaysian Chinese:
Yes, her latest unconditional apology is much much better than the one offered earlier to "good educated Indians" only, and with rebuttals.

But I think only she and God would really know she is really remorseful and filled with contrition over her act. One can apologise OUT OF FEAR of PROSECUTION (court charges, ISA) and/or OUT OF REMORSE/REPENTANCE Only Sammy can answer this.

But in either case, I would agree that Malaysians should accept Sammy's apology.

Jackie Lee said...

Damages has already been done, even the three website that I stated in my article also accepted her apology inculding the Hindraf.

As long as Sammy sincerely apologized, we should accept and forgive her.

We are just human.

Everyone seems to be forgetting the root cause of this problem which is the high crime rate committed by Indians.
What is Hindraf doing about it?
Its easy to point fingers at the government, police and etc but in the end no one have concrete actions to show but all talk.

Let all sides do what they can and show their effort via MSM or internet. People would know eventually.

You gotta feel for the girl.She lashed out purely on emotions of the moment and i don't think she is racist or anything.Im a Indian myself and we all do lash out at certain things but im sure we love our brothers and sisters of different race.

Time to move on ..it was nothing more than a innocent mistake.

Indian Youth need help. After 50 years of neglect, it is time for the government to help them. Who like to be criminal if given a choice?. So, please do not blame hindraf. Hindraf had done a lot for the Indian. Now the whole world know what is happening; until recently, MIC is think Indian is well off.

hey Mr. Lee

so sorry i didnt see the three websites you stated down there.
RagedIndian, Makkez and Naga


to be honest, i was quite shocked to see my site stated here, so i thought you were saying bout me.

Well , all Malaysians should accept Sammy's apologies. It is always better than doing nothing.

LongLive Malaysians!

To c guevara

Anyway thanks for your article also.

Your article also help me in organize my findings.

Thank you

Jackie Lee said...

To c guevara

Can I ask you a question ? Just now when I went to look for that particular article, I was so surprised and I can't find it.

What has happen ?

Care to tell me ?

C Guevara said...

yea i hid the article already.

I didnt online for a few days, and i miss out that part where Sammy apologised. And that also explains why i was suddenly struck by shock when i see part of my blog here.

How careless i was. So i decided to remove that article coz it still does contain racist elements.

Since she had already apologised, i decided to keep it for myself. Well what do you think about that?


like i said, keep in touch ;)
i'll link urs in mine... haha

Jackie Lee said...

From all the article that I make a research, your article can be consider nice because you are asking her to apologized sincerely.

Many of the comments have a lot of racist mark but inside your article you just write accordingly from your heart.

There is nothing wrong with that. Good article shouldn't be removed. It is good for people to remember and to analyst.

Keep it up......

Jackie Lee said...

Why Cares said...
Always and Better to keep nasty experiences to yourself only.

(a)Many bloggers are known to be clumsy with their words..

(b)..These common blunders inevitably spread out and adversely affect people around them.

To avoid 'clash of paradigm shift' please activate "This blog is open to invited readers only".

Be angry, but do not sin.

Blessed your enemy, do not curse them.
If they are hungry, feed them.
It they are thirsty, give them a drink.

My salute to all Peacemakers

She is a 22 years old young girl lah. What really she knows about life.
She made a mistake and in total distress (I am sure she still have the 'heat' feeling).
Forgiving people are great people indeed.
To Sammy buy a new mobile phone and send SMS to all indians and malaysians that I much you love them :)

C Guevara said...

haha... thanks Mr.Lee for your compliment!

I'll certainly put back that post, as soon as people are not that outraged anymore against her.


Peace & Love Rule!

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.

Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also [url=http://twitter.com/jetlyca]q Buy Viagra Online[/url] you can find on our sites.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
