The World Health Organization (WHO) director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus took a swipe at Taiwan during a press conference on April 8, claiming that all the racist comments and death threats he had received for the past three months have originated from Taiwan.
To this, YouTuber Ray Du blasted the director on his Facebook saying enough is enough. This outburst came as a surprise as the YouTuber is known for his mild manner.
After learning of Ghebreyesus’ comments, Ray Du posted: “What the hxxx is he talking about? Taiwan began discriminating against you since January? You are just trying to twist the criticism toward you regarding your ‘inability,’ ‘putting politics before world health’ and ‘letting the virus get out of hand’ into racial discrimination. This is irresponsible and a shameless act.”
Regarding Ghebreyesus’ comments claiming he doesn’t care if Taiwan continues to attack him, Du replied sarcastically,” So sorry that Taiwan became a model for virus-prevention while being excluded by global health organizations.”
Du also expressed regret that he had once tried to contact the WHO through his videos.
His post garnered enthusiastic replies from netizens offering support, with many agreeing that Ghebreyesus is merely trying to find a scapegoat for his own faults and “bad judgment.”
