The Entry-Exit Administration of Beijing Public Security Bureau on Thursday canceled the residence permit of Mark A. Kolars, a foreign employee of Chinese Academy of Sciences accused of posting racist comments, and ordered him to leave before the expiry of his visa.
Austrian Mark A. Kolars, who is a visual effects artist at the academy's Institute of Automation, posted comments on his LinkedIn account on Tuesday that read "not racist, just don't like dirty yellow guys, talking trash all day long… We are here to make money and you need us. Without us to begin with you would still wear rice heads".
Chinese netizens were furious over the comments by Kolars, who claimed to have lived and worked in China for more than two decades and holds a foreign expert green card. Many demanded he be fired and banned from entering the country again.
The academy terminated contract with him on Thursday.
