MANILA, Philippines — Only Filipinos at first expressed disgust over “Iisang Dagat” (“One Sea”), a music video that trumpeted China’s extending aid and support to the Philippines amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

But now, other nationalities have joined the chorus of indignation that the video — coproduced by the Chinese Embassy and featuring “jukebox queen” Camarines Sur Vice Gov. Imelda Papin, Chinese diplomat Xia Wenxin, Chinese-Filipino singer Jhonvid Bangayan and Chinese actor Yubin (from “The Untamed” TV series) performing the song with Chinese and Filipino lyrics—has drawn.

“I am a Taiwanese. I think this song is really an insult,” said Chang Hao Liu.
