A Thai national is gaining the attention of netizens after he had called Filipinos with derogatory remarks, even using ‘Pignoys’ to describe Filipinos. His posts in social media had gone viral that even a British citizen called foul against it and defended the Filipinos.
As it turned out, the Thai national goes by the name Koko Narak, but his real name is Kosin Prasertsri. The 32 year old Thai is working in Cognizant Philippines and is currently staying in BGC Taguig City. Despite working in the Philippines for three years already, he seemed to have negative opinions with the Filipinos in general. Though he did not specified, he seemed to have had negative experiences among Filipinos.
In his open letter. Conlan admitted that he was shocked with Prasertsri posts about the Philippines. Conlan wrote Filipinos actually work around the globe as engineers, doctors, airline pilots, senior managers and many more. Even the so called maids by Prasertsri are actually professionals with their work and treat their employers like part of their family.
Filipino netizens expressed their gratitude to Conlan for speaking up against the racist comments.
