NUS PRC scholar Sun Xu hurls insults at Singaporeans: Bunch of “瘪三” and “挫逼” (‘CCB’)
Posted by temasektimes on February 21, 2012
Despite sparking a massive outroar among Singaporeans with his offensive remarks on there “being more dogs than humans in Singapore,” NUS PRC scholar Sun Xu continues to use PRC vulgarities to curse Singaporeans.
He used the term “瘪三” to describe Singapore uncles, which is a derogatory word typically used in Shanghai to describe the underclass bums in the society. It means a person who is a tramp, bum, good-for-nothing fella, beggar, drifter, loafer, outcast, vagrant, destitute and worthless person.
When told by a fellow netizen not to be too fussy, he replied:
“Bunch of 挫逼. My temper these days is already a lot better.”
“挫逼” is a derogatory word commonly used in mainland China for cursing people, an equivalent of the Hokkien phrase ‘CCB’ used as a vulgarity in Singapore.
Sun has since change his moniker on ‘Weibo’ to “子小九日”
He also allegedly threatened a Singaporean Alex Tan who has since lodged a police report against him.
Though Sun has already deleted the offensive thread, he remains unrepentant and unapologetic.
When asked about the controversy by a Chinese tabloid, Sun replied nonchalantly without offering a public apology or showing any signs of remorse:
“I am only complaining. It is just a small matter and I do not want to blow it up. Anyway, I have already deleted the comment.”
Though numerous netizens have lodged complaints to NUS regarding Sun’s behavior, NUS continues to turn a blind eye to the matter.
The Singapore government spends about $36 million dollars each year on foreign scholars like Sun who not only studied in Singapore universities for free, but are given a generous monthly living allowance to ensure they live a comfortable life as well.
Unlike ordinary Singaporean men who have to compete in the market for a job, Sun Xu is guaranteed a well-paying job upon graduation and furthermore, he did not have National Service obligation, giving him an advantage over Singaporean male citizens who have.
