Hong Kong pop star Joey Yung came under fire after she posted a selfie wearing a face mask on Facebook.

“I never thought that a lyric and a selfie…would attract this storm. I am extremely sorry,” she said.

39-year-old Yung deleted the Facebook photo of herself wearing a surgical face mask along with a lyric taken from her song Airport while on a plane.
