Mixed Reactions Trail Viral Clip Of The Dalai Lama Asking A Kid To Suck His Tongue

The Dalai Lama is one of the most respected figures in the world, especially in the Buddhist universe. So his actions are of great significance, and the world is always watching. And because many look up to that figure — you might say office — the Dalai Lama’s actions have a significant impact.

So, there was understandably bound to be a reaction when a clip surfaced online showing the respected figure reportedly asking a young boy to suck his tongue.

The clip elicited outrage from around the world, with some condemning the Dalai Lama and accusing him of being a paedophile. Some lumped him and other religious leaders into one carrel, claiming that respected religious leaders usually use their office as a facade to hide their nefarious activities.

And yet some gave excuses for the Dalai Lama, claiming it was just a careless moment by a respected figure who is a ma like everyone else and not immune to mistakes.

The Dalai Lama himself has realised he erred and issued an apology for what transpired between him and the kid. After all, it was not a secret liaison or whatever, but it happened publicly.

Of course, it has not stopped the public from talking. Some reactions follow below.
