“I, Ai Takagi, wish to take this opportunity to sincerely apologise to the people of Singapore for the harm I have caused them through my actions in posting content to my website TheRealSingapore.com.
I love Singapore and hope to call it my home permanently.
Before this case started, I was not fully aware of the level of sensitivity needed when dealing with topics related to racial and religious issues in Singapore. I did not fully appreciate the gravity and sensitivity required when approaching such subjects.
I now know that the harmony which Singapore enjoys today requires careful and continuous efforts on the part of everyone, citizens and visitors alike, to maintain. This is especially so online where articles, comments and opinions are seen by large audiences very quickly.
I will definitely be more careful with any and all my online postings in the future. Again, I sincerely apologise for the harm I have caused through my actions.”
