‘Good’ friend of Lai Shimun now ‘regrets’ sabotaging her by sharing her ‘racist’ tweet
Posted by temasektimes on March 28, 2012
It was supposedly a private tweet visible only to her circle of friends, but Alice (not her real name) felt so peeved off that she re-tweeted it to teach her good friend Lai Shimun a lesson and probably one which she will never forget in her life.
The ‘racist’ post by Ms Lai went viral in cyberspace in hours, sparking a massive outcry among Singaporeans and a police report was lodged against her.
Speaking to queries from the media, Alice now has second thoughts about her actions:
“I just want to teach her a lesson…I didn’t know that this will get so big. I feel kind of guilty.”
Alice were schoolmates with Ms Lai at Catholic Junior College. She said she didn’t want to confront her directly because she knew her personally and they have many mutual friends.
Till today, Ms Lai is probably still kept in the dark on the identity of ‘Alice’ who turned her life upside down at the press of a button.
(We have received a tip-off that the real name of ‘Alice’ is ‘Celia’. If you have more information about her, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org)
