Inulan ng batikos si Amber Liu matapos sang-ayunan ang pulis na inaresto ang isang Black American na kumakain ng tinapay sa isang subway platform.
“He deserved it, I think he just deserved it because he’s being super disrespectful, and you don’t have to act like that toward a police officer. A police officer is still a police officer. You should still show some type of respect. Know your rights, but show some type of respect,” ang komento ni Amber sa YouTube channel na JustKiddingNews.
Dahil sa kanyang pahayag, na-bash si Amber ng publiko at naka-private na ngayon ang video ng nasabing YouTube channel.
Ngayong Lunes, sinaad ni Amber sa Twitter ang paghingi niya ng tawad sa publiko tungkol sa kanyang “ignorant, snap judgment” sa video clip.

“It was my fault for not being more aware of how the systemic racism in the United States has continued and gotten worse while I spent the last 10 years overseas. It angers me that he was singled out because of the color of his skin. It is completely unjust and I am so sorry for not seeing the whole situation and jumping to a conclusion,” ayon sa American singer.
“I’ve always stood for equality, I’ve always stood for love, I believe in #BlackLivesMatter, and I’m so sorry I’ve negatively affected so many people because of my ignorance and I will continue to educate myself in this matter,” dagdag pa niya.
