Taiwani Misiter Had To Pay Heavy Cost For The Joke
Taiwan’s examination minister resigned Wednesday after sparking outrage by making a lewd joke at a staff party. Lai Feng-wei was heavily criticised by women’s groups and others after reportedly making the sexually suggestive remarks during a ministry party last month. According to the Taipei-based Apple Daily, when Lai was asked to pick winners in a prize draw he used the off-color language, which included: “Deeper, deeper.” He apologised to the public during a press conference but criticism continued and he tendered his resignation to President Ma Ying-jeou.
