There has been much buzz about 20 year-old Amos Yee, a Singaporean blogger, former YouTube personality and former child actor. After Yee’s social media accounts were recently taken down because of its pro-pedophilia content, one of his supporters Melissa Chen, the very woman who helped Yee seek asylum in the United States now wants him deported.
TISG: Do you want Amos to come back to Singapore? Why / Why not?
Mary Toh: Nope. He seems happier in the US, he also won’t go to prison for criticising any governments or religion (that’s a big one).
TISG: What is the next course of action if your son gets deported from the US?
MT: We’ll figure it out if it ever happens.
TISG: Melissa Chen blames Amos’ environment for his pro-pedophilia tendencies, do you agree with this?
MT: Amos started defending pedophiles while he was in Singapore.
TISG: Why do you think Amos has gone down this path?
MT: He said that Singapore politics affects only 6 million Singaporeans, however there are 100s of millions of pedophiles all around the world. Boy wants more power.
TISG: From your knowledge, is Amos involved with minors or does he intend to be involved with them? Or does he just provide a platform for those who are pro-pedophilia?
MT: Nah Amos isn’t sexually attracted to minors himself, and won’t do anything illegal because unlike in Singapore (where you get a lot of media attention and recognition for the small amount of jail-time you serve), doing anything illegal in the US probably isn’t worth it.
TISG: Can you tell us a bit more about the private meeting that Amos requested with Melissa?
MT: Looks like that’s in progress
