Must not imitate foreign accents

Emcee Sharon Au ruffled some feathers during the glittering SEA Games opening ceremony on Friday night during the ceremony's pre-show segment when she mimicked an Indian accent while talking to a young Indian girl.

Au took to Facebook Saturday morning to apologise in a Facebook post. "Some of you may have watched the pre-show and heard my attempt at mimicking an Indian accent," she wrote. "It was intended to be comic but in hindsight I realise how insensitive it was. I sincerely apologise to those whom I’ve inadvertently offended."

So much for imitation being the sincerest form of flattery. It was a stupid idea though.
