Thai girl band BNK48 sorry for Nazi T-shirt controversy

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

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

The CEO of BNK48, and the 19-year-old singer, have met the Israeli ambassador and apologised.

Many Thais say they are unaware of the history of the Nazis in World War Two.
