SINGAPORE - The "brownface" advertisement controversy earlier this year, which had a Chinese actor-deejay painting his face brown to depict an Indian man, shows a need to err on the side of caution to avoid causing anger and ill-will to others, said Minister for Culture, Community and Youth Grace Fu.

The incident also shows a need to develop sensitivity in knowing when not to cross the line, she said.

"Does it make people angry, does it cause ill-will? If so, I think we should err on the side of caution," she said.
