AMOS YEE’S MOTHER: SORRY SON, MUMMY WAS WRONG

Teenage blogger Amos Yee’s mother has published a note on her Facebook to her son, who is currently remanded in the Institute of Mental Health while he awaits a report on mandatory psychiatric treatment for posting an offensive video about Christianity and the late PAP leader Lee Kuan Yew.

Read the heart wrenching note in full here:

Sorry Son.

Sorry for telling you that you are in the safest country. You are feeling so insecure and scared now.

Sorry for urging you to be a law-abiding citizen. The laws are doing you more harm than good now.

Sorry for assuring you that you will be well-protected. You are being threatened and ill-treated now.

Sorry for saying that our government provides us the best welfare. You are not even allowed to sleep at home now.

Sorry for telling you that home is best. It is where you were arrested from.

Sorry for encouraging you to be creative and expressive. You are regarded as crazy and rebellious instead.

Sorry for not teaching you well. You could have been taught otherwise.

Sorry Son. Mummy is wrong.
