Monk to U.N.’s Special Rapporteur: “To us, you are just a whore.”

U.N. chief slams Buddhist monk over ‘whore’ comment

The United Nations’ top human rights official has called on Myanmar’s leaders to “unequivocally condemn” an ultra-nationalist Buddhist monk who labeled a visiting U.N. rapporteur a “whore” at a protest.

Ashin Wirathu, the leader of the far-right, anti-Muslim 969 movement, made the remarks about Yanghee Lee, the U.N.’s Special Rapporteur on Myanmar, at a public rally on Friday.

“Don’t assume you are a respectable person, just because of your position,” he said in the speech, footage of which was widely circulated on social media. “To us, you are just a whore.”


 

I don’t get it. It’s not like he lied.
