Don’t apologise like Simon Henry


The ‘Eurasian fluff’ CEO has – technically – apologised to Nadia Lim

Dear Ms Lim

I have tried calling you several times on your cell phone to make an apology but was unable to get through.

So begins the apology from DGL CEO Simon Henry to Nadia Lim, sent yesterday via email (but dated May 6), a week after his offensive remarks made headlines.

Therefore, please take this letter as my sincere and formal apology for my inappropriate language in relation to you used in the interview.

Yours sincerely

Simon Henry

So ends the apology from CEO of DGL Simon Henry to Nadia Lim after referring to her as “Eurasian fluff” and accusing My Food Bag of using her “sensuality” to “hock scrip”.

Sometimes less is more. But not this time.
