Agnez Mo (formerly known as Agnes Monica) recently caused a stir among the internet community during her recent interview.

The 33-year-old made her appearance in “Build” to promote her latest single called “Diamonds”. During the session, host Kevan Kenney pointed out how Agnez has been a “little different” than everybody else back in her home country, Indonesia.

“I actually don’t have Indonesian blood whatsoever. I’m actually German, Japanese, Chinese. I was just born in Indonesia. And I’m also Christian, which in Indonesia, the majority there are Muslims,” the 33-year-old shared during the chat.

She further added by saying, “I’m not going to say that I don’t belong there, because I felt like people accepted me for who I was but there is always that sense of ‘urgh, I’m not like everybody else.'”

Her statement has in turn received a massive amount of backlash from Indonesian fans. In this case, most of them have felt that Agnez has forgotten her cultural roots ever since she embarked her career in the States. Check out some of the fans’ comments below:

Agnez later took to her Instagram to clarify the situation. According to the “Ku T’lah Jatuh Cinta” actress, the video that was spread online was incomplete. Furthermore, she emphasised that even though she is a part of the minority, she is able to share “this amazing diversity” that she has learned in her country.

In addition, she claimed that it is not her place to choose her own blood and DNA. Not only that, she assured everyone that she will always stand for her homeland, and nobody will take her love for the country away from her.

❀️Why dont you cut and edit this part? πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ. Shame on people who only want to spread hatred by twisting my words and my intention. ☺️ All i said were good things, that even when I’m a MINORITY, i got to share this amazing diversity that i learn in my country. I have always shared that in ALL my interviews (national and international). I can’t choose my blood or my DNA, but I always STAND for my country, I ALWAYS HAVE, and NOBODY could take that away from me. Learn to watch the whole thing instead of taking things out of context. For people who support me, i love you ☺️ For people who want to misunderstand me, i love you and i forgive you. ☺️❀️ πŸ₯° believe me, i dont have a single ounce of grudge or anger towards you. For all the clout chasers, I pray for you so you could find peace in ur heart πŸ₯°β€οΈ#TheBibleTellsMeSo My heart is full. No matter what you say, ✊🏼#Indonesia represent. #AGNEZMO Love & Forgive
