[Dew and her manager Coco]
Actress, “Dew” Arisara Thongborisut came out to apologize after her incident where she posted a comment to “Maple” Patchuda Panpipat by degrading her saying, “Laos has no respect for anyone”. Which caused dissatisfaction with with the Isaan and Laotian citizens and the “Isaan People Who Love Each Other” committee to hold a press conference and demand that Dew apologize for her words as it was used in a degrading matter to all Laotians and Isaan citizens.
Lastly, the actress came out to the sacrificial opening ceremony of “Hor Dtaew Jert Dta-lert Dtaek” and “Gao Rak Tee Gao-Lee” admitted to using the word and apologized for using the word that it became a huge issue. Plus she refuses to answer any questions regarding her smackdown with “Spoi” as her excuse was that today was a good day and she would like to not mention the other party. That the next event she would answer all questions and that the smackfest she had with ‘Spoi” ended long ago.
“Today, I’m coming out to apologize instead because I didn’t mean to degrade or say anything bad to Laotians. Personally I like this country. I’m just sorry and I would like to thank the elders who have warned me and use my situation to be a reminder to everyone else. It’s good also that we will stop using this word altogether.”
How do you feel about this?
“It was just one word, but I’ve been criticized heavily for it. True that I think this word is used often by people and since I’m an actress I shouldn’t be using that word at all. But really I wrote down on my BB (Blackberry) and it leaked out. Let’s just say I didn’t mean it and I’m sorry for using the word.”
Has this situation taught you a lesson?
“It’s like I’ve gotten a lesson. It’s good, so I can stop using the language and not say that word anymore. (Do you feel like you’re the one being picked out of a bunch of other people since there are others who use this word a lot?) I do feel it but it’s also a good thing because other can stop using this word and it’s causing an impact to our neighboring country also. I didn’t mean for it to offend anyone, but I want to apologize to the “Isaan People Who Love Each Other” committee that I didn’t mean to offend them and I’m sorry for my words to have come out like that. So I hope everyone can use me as an example to not use “Lao” as an insult and a word that shouldn’t be used because it’s not as bad that is frightening.”
As for the Maple situation Dew hesitated on saying,
“See today I really don’t want to talk about this person and I don’t want to speak about the situation at all. So next time at the next event or when you see me I’ll clear this. (The next even is when you’ll meet with her face to face?) I won’t probably see her, but I meant that you and I (reporters) will have to see each other already. Today is supposed to be a good day and I don’t want to talk about it much. OK, I’m sorry, but as for the problem with the other person we’ll talk about it later and today I intended to make offerings and I don’t want to talk about it that much.”
As for the situation where her boyfriend, “Golf” Pichaya Nitipaisarnkul posted a facebook comment calling Maple a “Bitch Sideline” his girlfriend said,
“As for the situation with Golf it ended already. If she didn’t take legal actions then it was nothing at all. I haven’t talked or chatted about this with Golf at all because he’s out of the country. (Has Golf been criticized by girls over there yet?) With this you’ll have to wait for Golf to return and ask him about it because he’s over there and it’s hard to keep in touch with each other. So we haven’t been talking to each other a lot lately.”
Have you cleared it up with Maple yet?
“We haven’t cleared anything yet because there is nothing to clear up. It’s a situation where… I don’t know what to say (She said she’s done are you done?) I’ve been done with it since forever already. As for Maple I will answer each question definitely but another time because today I want to show respect for the ceremony.”
There are so many bad press is it having any bad impact with your work? (Her Manager Coco Nirun answered for her saying, )
“It has no impact whatsoever. As for events there have been some that hire her, but we have to look at her schedule to see if she’s free or not. (Is the reason you’re not letting us interview regarding Maple, is it because you want us to interview at the next event?) No, it’s not like that. It’s just that we don’t want to talk about Maple at all. It’s not our side that has problems because we’re not the ones that came out to speak of it, so we don’t have anything to say. Since it’s a respect the teacher ceremony Dew doesn’t want to talk about the situation too much. She’s here to accept her fault for using the word and apologizing for it that’s all.”
