Below is what she wrote:
"SARS in the entertainment sector. If you are a director, and you ask for s*x before giving roles, you are worse than SARS. If you are a producer, and you owe your casts and crew and you refuse to pay, you are worse than SARS. If you are an actor, and you scheme your way to hijack a role from your fellow actor, some will tell their marketer boyfriends names of people that will not be in the job, then your name is SARS. If you are a PM/Director/Producer and you tell people to register under your company( after registering in AGN) and you don’t give them good jobs, you are Daddy/Mummy SARS. We need to also cleanse the entertainment sector."
