What I did: I read up on what Anton Casey did after the backlash caused by his offensive comments.

What I learned: 
I found out that Anton Casey's employer, Crossinvest Asia, fired him after he made his offensive remarks online. He had received many death threats and  a lot of verbal abuse after his comments went viral. Anton Casey had tried to make a public apology, but it backfired as many people thought he was insincere. Due to the threats he received, he and his family have moved to Australia.
