MDA to investigate ‘kissing’ incident between Vivian Lai and Kate Pang during Star Awards

Posted by temasektimes on May 4, 2012

A seemingly innocuous kiss between female actresses Vivian Lai and Kate Pang during the Star Awards ceremony last weekend has caught the attention of the Media Development Authority (MDA) which says it will now investigate the incident following some ‘complaints’ from Singaporeans.

During Sunday’s Live telecast of Star Awards Show 2, 36 year old Vivian Lai was seen kissing 29 year old Kate Pang on her lip when she was announced as one of the Top 10 Most Popular Female Artistes.

Her kiss prompted a mild backlash among conservative viewers who are uncomfortable with seeing women kissing each other.

When contacted by the media, Lai said she was surprised by the reaction of some viewers as the kiss was a natural reaction to express her joy.

MDA said it will review the programme to see if it has breached content guidelines of the free-to-air TV programme code.

Two months ago, two Singaporean girls were expelled from their junior college after being caught on video kissing each other publicly in the school’s canteen.

    When certain people lose billions of dollars in overseas investments, gahmun tell us to not be concerned. When SMRT breakdown gahmun say its normal, don’t worry. When we get flooding, gahmun say its ponding. When PRC student getting free education and scholarship say we are dogs, gahmun say nevermind. When two school girls kiss, they get expelled from school? When two hot girl kiss, gahmun not happy??? What is wrong with our society?????

    Ahem, I smell a particular religious group’s anti gay zealots hands in this. I thought they were shown the door 2 years ago at a certain “AGM” involving a bald guy standing up for his personal beliefs and principles in the face of criticism about his social status?

    Should be some parents who are so protective of their child in such thing… I do know of many parents who kept their children in a safe box… They probably don’t know that their kids are surfing porn on websites….

    pls lah singapore…are you still living in the sea or space…

  17. Quinn said

    What this is crazy , what century are we living in? Did their kiss touch your lips or check ?
    With their physical expression it is between both of them and none of the viewer are involve – Pls people as long as they did not have any physical touch on any of the viewer leave your comment to your self .
    Leave them alone !

  18. Chris Chiang said

    Why get so worked up? If they expressed their joy by having a hug, then no hooha liao, just dun understand why they hv to do that in public???!!!

  19. Ron said

    Pity Spore. Want to be First World but act like 3rd World shrouded with archiac Victorian beliefs. Yet, will allow prostitution to operate freely and even allow deception on underaged sex. Yet, will allow free travel for foreigners charged with assault.

    So mixed up. So fxxked up. What’s wrong with two women have a smooch in celebration? Might as well shut down all TV shows and play only religious programmes.

    Vivian Lai? Kate Pang?? Their fault??? Y not the cameraman??? Duh! Everyone’s clapping while they watch them kiss…. So how? Investigate them too? Wise up, Media…

  21. bt said

  22. IQ vs CBQ said

    “..mild backlash among conservative viewers..” ??!! The complainants must be deluded, ultra conservative self-righteous ancient dinosaurs who
    think they are living in the stone age!
    MDA must never allow “conservative” exclusive groups to impose their personal warped moral agendas on the wider society. Investigate ? LOL!
    This is going to be sensational headline news throughout the world! Maybe this is what MDA wants.

    Maybe trying to divert attention from other issues that leave people fuming
