Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je (柯文哲) yesterday maintained that the opponents of
pension reform who disrupted the Summer Universiade opening ceremony were “bastards” as he replied to a comment on Facebook.
Ko first made the remark on Sunday during a news conference after the protesters blocked foreign athletes entering the Taipei Municipal Stadium, where the ceremony was held on Saturday evening.
Ko also on Sunday posted on Facebook an aerial photograph of fireworks lighting up the sky above the stadium during the ceremony, thanking Universiade staff, volunteers, police officers and Taiwanese athletes for helping the ceremony continue smoothly, despite the incident. [FULL STORY]
