Thai Girl Band BNK48 Love NAZIS


One of Thailand’s most popular pop bands has apologized, after a member wore a T-shirt with a Nazi swastika on stage during a rehearsal.

Photos of BNK48 singer Pichayapa “Namsai” Natha with the shirt went viral this weekend, causing the Israeli embassy to express “shock and dismay”. Oy Vey!!


After seeing photos of the rehearsal, Israel’s deputy ambassador to Thailand Smadar Shapira, said: “Presenting Nazi symbols by the band’s singer hurt the feelings of millions around the world, whose relatives were murdered by the Nazis.”

There was criticism of the band online, although some fans argued that they were also unaware of what Nazi symbols meant.


The band has agreed to take part in an educational workshop on the Holocaust to raise awareness, Ms Shapira said on Twitter.
