Singaporeans and Hong Kongers hurl insults at PRC netizens in a fierce exchange on Youtube
Posted by temasektimes on May 18, 2012
A fierce exchange between Singaporean and PRC netizens happened on the Youtube video of the Ferrari accident with Hong Kongers joining the fray as well!
The shocking video of the accident which showed a red Ferrari driven by PRC man Ma Chi beating the red light and speeding across the junction between Rochor Road and Victoria Street to crash into a Hyundai Sonata taxi garnered more than 100,000 views in a day.
Ma Chi died on the spot while the cabby Singaporean Cheng Teck Hock and his Japanese passenger Shigemi Ito passed away from their injuries hours later in the hospital.
Besides Singaporeans venting their anger at Ma Chi, Hong Kongers also joining the ‘fight’ against the ‘locusts’, as the PRC Chinese are called in Hong Kong:
The torrent of insults caused one angry PRC netizen working in Singapore to retaliate in kind:
The PRC netizen said they are giving Singapore ‘face’ by working and living here and added that every PRC netizen who posted on the video are ‘better’ than Singaporeans.
The Chinese embassy has issued a statement yesterday urging its citizens to obey the laws of Singapore.
The collective massive outpouring of anti-foreigner sentiments online in the aftermath of the accident is a clear indication that the government’s attempts to integrate the new immigrants with Singaporeans have failed miserably.
It is time to review our immigration policies and to revise present plans to integrate large number of non-English PRC immigrants into Singapore society.
