A video mocking Singapore by a Chinese national has been making its rounds in the Singapore social media scene in the last few days.
Mr Wang Peng Fei, a 24-year-old final year student studying hospitality at the East Asia Institute of Management, was expelled from the school for creating the inflammatory video.
He also had his student visa cancelled and forfeited his course fees for this year, which amounts to $10,000.
The matter was brought into the spotlight when Mr Alex Tan Zhixiang from the Singapore People’s Party made a police report on Sunday against Mr Wang for “racist remarks” against a minority group.
Here’s the video in question:
The four-minute monologue rant in Chinese is rambling and disjointed, and touches on topics like our languages spoken, cabbies, Singaporean women and food.
For example, near the 2.25 minute mark, he rants about Malay women whom he says are good only for giving birth.
Even China’s own netizens seem to think that he’s a disgrace.
If it’s a joke, it’s surely in very bad taste, and the East Asia Institute of Management was certainly within their rights to expel him.
Mr Wang obviously has no clue or context (or is interested in the history) of why multi-racial Singapore works, and why hate speech of any sort is not tolerated here.
