Asia: ”Nightclub apologizes for hosting ‘Corona Chinese New Year Special’ during Lockdown”

A nightclub in Australia has apologized for an event marketed as the “Corona Chinese New Year Special,” which offered club-goers a face mask and Corona beer for $8, a report said. The event was promoted by an independent company called Mr. Chan’s, according to the report. After a backlash from social media users who panned the marketing material as xenophobic and racist, both the club and Mr. Chan’s have apologized.
