Lady seen wearing singlet at Somerset MRT station responds to media coverage over her attire
She apologised if she offended anyone with her outfit.
Some articles about a lady in what appears to be a singlet at the MRT station have made the rounds on social media.
Here they are.
The news even reached Taiwan for some reason.
Here are the series of pictures this was in response to.
Most of the comments, from the articles themselves, as well as the comment section focused on the inappropriateness of the choice of clothes.
Well, the lady in the midst of the incident has responded.
Ashley Garcia, who is a freelance model, claims she was “cyber shamed, bullied and threatened by several people” because of her attire.
Here is her full response.
“Yes, this was me waiting in the ATM queue. I was not aware that somebody took a photo of me (I don’t personally know his purpose). I apologize if I offended any culture on this outfit, but, please understand that I do not have any obscene or malicious intention by wearing it.
I am sorry if you think that this was an “indecent exposure” but, it was not my intention. To those people who are already hitting me below the belt and criticizing me of something, I respect you. You are already telling things which are too personal that is already outside of what you see in the picture. I was already cyber shamed, bullied and threatened by several people because of this.
PS. I was wearing shorts and nipple tapes during that time. Peace, mwah!✌🏻☺️😘”
She also told Stomp that she wishes the person who took the photo would come out and apologise.
Despite the initial furore, there were many who came to her defence.
