Ronan Keating's erroneous IG post about ships turned away from S'pore due to Covid-19 disappears

Quite fast.

On Mar. 2, Ronan Keating found himself a hot topic in Singapore.

The Irish singer had claimed that ships were not allowed to dock in Singapore's port due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) subsequently debunked Keating's post.

Sometime between the debunking on Mar. 2, around 6:30pm, and Mar. 3, past midnight, Keating's post was removed.

Here's the now-unavailable post, in case you missed it:

However, whether it was deleted/ archived by him, or by the platform, is unknown.

The following post, on an auction to support Australia's bushfire relief, became Keating's most recent post.

Until he posted another one at about 1am:

User asked for apology

Social media users were quick to notice the post's removal, and were even quicker to point it out.

Like so:

One person commented with a parody of Keating's caption:

A few, however, felt that the singer should address the post, and even apologise.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯
