Ex-Singapore idol finalist Norman Then LAUGHS after watching Bugis accident video: Crash and burn…Hahaha

Posted by temasektimes on May 16, 2012

While most Singaporeans are shocked and outraged by the video clip of the Bugis accident last Saturday morning, which saw one speeding Ferrari ramming into a Hyundai Sonata taxi killing himself and two other victims, one Singaporean guy is having a great time laughing at it.

Ex-Singapore Idol finalist Norman Then, a graduate of Ngee Polytechnic and currently working at ‘Ice Cold Beer’ posted a sadistic comment on his Facebook last night:

“When I watching the video of the PRC guy smashing into the taxi. My first instinct was…. To LAUGH. People in the car didn’t think it was funny though. Perhaps next time I’ll try another reaction…….. Singing perhaps….”crash and burn” savage garden. Hahahahaha.”

[Source: Norman Then's Facebook]

Norman remained unfazed by the feedback given by his friends who were disgusted by his comment and wrote in his next post that ‘life is a joke’ to him:

Norman Then was the top 12 finalist for Season 2 of Singapore Idol:

It is not a joke that two innocent man and woman had died from the accident, one of whom was the sole breadwinner of the family and the daughter now has to put her plans to further her studies in the university as a result.

Is it too much to show a bit of sympathy and compassion towards a fellow Singaporean? We urge Norman Then to apologize publicly for his insensitive remarks on Facebook.

    Don’t know why kids nowadays are like that…. Oh well…

    • sad story said

      a person who can LAUGH when something tragic happens to another person…… already shows that he is ‘off’ in his mental capabilities.
      In such a circumstance, the normal tendency is to “Oh my God”! “Oh no”! “Oh shit”!!! Etc… because humans have a capacity to feel for others.
      This type of people such as Norman will likely laugh and watch with glee if someone kicks a kitten or a puppy.
      Mentally ill. And possibly dangerous.

      Do you expect such a person to help you out when you are in trouble, split seconds from harm? I wouldn’t bet on it.

    Either your bad singing or drowning of the beer has resulted in you being brain dead with no compassion!!

    I think he is merely posing a different perspective. For once can all of you just relax and stop being so self-righteous!

  6. meimei said

    disgusting man.
    i hate to say this but, seriously, you are disgusting and you are a disgrace.
    you are definitely on par with the Ferrari driver.
    I despise you from the bottom of my heart even though i have not heard of you previously.

    singapore idol season 2 finalist? OH, i dont even know you. it shows how popular you are and im thinking that you are stooping this low and make a joke out of this tragedy to raise your popularity. disgusting.

  7. i5htar said

    I hope to see you bloody face in a slammed car accident and i “”CONFIRM”” laughing at you!!!

  8. yongz said

    if u become the victim …. i will laugh even louder..

  9. morningstarkar said

    Right of speech bro. If he want to laugh, let him laugh. One more heartless person in this world does no harm.

    I do not agree that he needs to do a public apology.

    • red said

      oh sure, one more heartless person wouldn’t hurt. Hitler would agree with you. However, millions of jews will beg to differ. He has abused the right to freedom of speech.

  10. SK TOH said

    Norman Then, i can sense that you are those immature, spoilt brat hanging around clubs, courting girls with your smile, voice, etc. However you lack of somethings that all humans should have…one of those are; empathy, there are far more worst description about you that i could observe from your cyber post but this one is the ‘nicest’ that i want to share with everyone in Singapore.

    Please learn how to respect people (even the dead), and you gain respect of others. Btw get a real ‘job’ and contribute to the society… guess u disappointed your family alot :(

  11. costantini said

    Such a disgrace. Insensitive, sadistic and heartless. Never knew dat a human being like Norman Then can be really sick. Just hope and pray it doesn’t happen to any of ur loved ones and we’ll see if u can afford to laugh Then. Fucking cunt!

  12. dudette said

    maybe he got depression, abit kuku one LOL

  13. Firstly, that was an incredibly difficult headline to read because his surname is an adverb… and I don’t mean that as a joke or an insult… just a thought.

    Secondly, he corrects ” You okay anot?” to “You okay or not?”.. he does realise that technically they’re both incorrect?

    Also, I completely disagree that he should apologise. He expressed an opinion. His opinion was distasteful and worrying but, nonetheless it was his opinion and unless he is truly repentant and remorseful, he shouldn’t apologise, because that would only cheapen the act of apology. And I would rather we maintain what little we have left of the sincerity behind public apology than squander it away on worthless people like him.

    And that brings me to my next point. He might have an opinion, and a right to that opinion, but he also has to face the consequences of voicing it. We now all, hopefully, realise that he is an unfeeling, attention seeking a–hole, and we have every right to hold that rather substantiated opinion about him. Or maybe he is a deeply disturbed individual who needs help…

    Either way we can all dislike him for his behaviour and if he wants to call anyone out on why we dislike him…. he can go f–k himself.

    Watching a fatal accident in which three persons were killed and another was injured is not a matter to laugh at.
    I think Norman has to get his head examined. What if he is the motor-cyclist who broke a leg and suffering pain
    and if he can still tell us is a laughing matter, then I will salute him and book a bed for him in IMH and not TTSH.

  30. Note to all who commented on my post:
    First of all I want to thank you for the love expressed in your remarks. Very appreciative. Also I want to point out a few things that might interest you all so pls take a moment to read.

    Before you judge me and make comments about my post. I implore you to consider this; if you had taken time to actually find out what I meant by my comments, perhaps you wouldn’t be singing the same tune. I mean I love it when people just sit behind their keyboards and flame mercilessly at whomever they can target their pent up hatred for. Now people take a moment to listen to what I have to say, here here, gather around the campfire

    In my comments I made no insult or anything of the sort towards the family of the PRC driver and the taxi driver. On the contrary, I feel deeply sympathetic and offer my sincerest condolences to the family of both sides. I was merely pointing out that even in this horrid accident there can be a “silver lining” to be found. Do I find the deaths funny? No. I laughed at the situation that they ended up in. Its irony at its best. Not at the people who died.
    Now, where is this “silver lining” one might ask. Quite simply put, to any tragedy there’s always comedy to be found. So what Norman you self-righteous, no good, sadistic air head bozo, find funny in this situation? Haters step inside to the mind of Norman Then and perhaps you’ll understand the true meaning to his “insensitive laughter”.
    Now comedy, where? First of all, classic riches and working class. Men of different status, country of origin and family background, both of their lives collided (literally and figuratively) when they faced the greatest equaliser of them all. Death. It just reminds us it doesn’t matter what car you drive, how good your lifestyle is or how many hours of work you put into your work. At the end of the day, we all meet the same fate. The inevitable end.
    Secondly, the PRC man, obviously a man of wealth, was also known to be a philanthropist and probably wanted to be remembered in his lifetime for what he did on this earth. Well, he did get what he wished for ultimately in his death, to be forever remembered, Immortalized on youtube for the world to see. Who can forget him now. How can no one see the irony in that? Yes his death sucks. Yes its tragic. But also yes he is human and lets face it, humans make mistakes.
    Finally, before watching the video, I was told by friends who has had prior viewing of the so named accident, that this was a very graphic video. In my head I was like….how bad can it be? BAM! Woahhhhhhhhhhhhhh the hell? What in the world was………replay. No matter how prepared I was to watch that, I was still taken aback viewing it for the first time.

    So at this point some of you are already itching to come at me from every angle with insults and criticisms of all sorts. I urge you to take a step back and look at ourselves before we venture any further into this discussion.

    NOW, HOW MANY OF US REPLAYED THE VIDEO AFTER VIEWING IT THE FIRST TIME? Answer: ALL OF US. More than one time? No some of us has viewed it more than ten times.
    I now challenge u to ask yourself, Why? why watch it so many times? If the images were so graphic and so horrific that it makes you so sympathetically towards the family, then why watch it again? What do you want to further horrify yourself? Is the conversation between the two people in the video very interesting? Did you want to get the license plate of the car at the corner? In whatever way you choose to look at it. There is no good reason for replaying the video. Because deep down inside, as much as everyone(myself included) hates to admit, we do realise that there was some entertainment value to the video. WOAH WOAH WOAH, what is this guy saying? He enjoyed watching that? Now before you jump at me with accusations. Search deep inside your soul. Why did you replay the video if not for the entertainment value? Same reason u pay money to watch SAW and same reason we watch action movies. I know they are made up events but in reality , if it doesn’t happen to us, or anyone we know, we perceive it as fiction. How many deaths all over the world people experiencing everyday that are 10 times more tragic that this? Starvation, murder or suicide. Arent these more horrific than a car accident? And don’t people die from car accidents everyday? Why then do we take up arms and want to blame everything and everyone involved in this accident? I believe it was pent up hatred singaporeans have for foreigners all this while just that we never got to express it. Now that we have the avenue to unleash that pent up anger, everyone seems to want to jump on the bandwagon and drive all the PRC people outta country. I mean, seriously? Why? these people contribute to our society just as much as you do. Some of them do the jobs that no Singaporean would ever wanna do. So why chase them out? They are humans just like us. Is there a need to discriminate them?
    Now Norman. YOU AH. YOU WAIT TILL YOUR FAMILY KENA CAR ACCIDENT SEE WHETHER YOU LAUGH OR NOT. Isn’t that what we all are thinking now. But in fact my family did face a very bad car accident. Almost identical to this case. Only difference is that no one died. Now was I laughing when I found out that my entire family could have died one night and I would have been all alone in this world? Nope. But then at some point I too found the comedy in the situation. Had they been a second later. Whole family would have been dead. Its funny how seconds can mean the very different between life and death. It helps you take life less seriously. If you can enjoy every second, you can enjoy every hour, every day.
    HAH I SEE YOU ON THE ROAD I BANG YOU. YOUR FACE KENA SMASH SEE WHETHER U LAUGHING OR NOT WHEN YOU DIE. I assure you my friend. If I was in heaven staring down at my mangled body I would give God two thumbs up and a pat on the back saying “nice job. Haha poetic justice.” So answer is yes. I would eventually still laugh.
    YOU ARE A SADISTIC MOFO. Mmmm no. well basic level sadism I guess yes. Just like the rest of us. Do I go around crashing into people and enjoy watching them die? No. do I want to do that? Nope. Have I played games that encourage that kind of behaviour? Yes :P (those of us that play GTA don’t shy away now).
    YOU HAVE NO SYMPATHY FOR THE DEAD YOU INSENSITIVE PRICK. Its funny how these same people saying these things are also the ones cursing my family( who are completely innocent) to die and also cursing the PRC who according to some of them “deserve to die”. Now those kids out there saying these things. Arent you far worse than I am? Havent you considered that this PRC guy has a family too? A mum a dad, siblings whatever, who would also be grieving over the lost of their loved one? So how sensitive are your comments towards those people? AND YOU GOT THE CHEEK TO CALL ME INSENSITIVE. I NEVER MADE FUN, CURSED, OR INSULTED THE DEAD PEOPLE. And how about the PRC people in Singapore who are still alive and living here? You curse the PRC people like their country of origin has anything to do with their behaviour? Whatever one chooses to do in this life is ultimately his choice. So are your “”DEATH CURSE TO ALL PRC IN SINGAPORE” sensitive to those who are alive? What makes you think all PRC drivers are horrible drivers? By saying such moronic things like that, you are actually no better than the people you are cursing.

    Now after saying all this. After I’ve insulted myself and provided myself with the counter argument, I assure those people that have understood my point of view that there will still be haters out there that would drop really idiotic really stupid comments that shows that either they didn’t understand the content of this note or that they just want to find something to hate.
    If you are reading this are you are thinking to yourself. I don’t agree with this guy. I say to you. Fair enough. I cant make everyone see things the way I do, nor do I say that my way is the right way. If you have your opinion, fine, so be it. Just don’t try and force it upon me or anyone else for that matter. For those of you who agree with me, well… haha whats wrong with you? You are as messed up as I am

    And finally for those of you who are just going to spam flame this note. Well theres really nothing to say to you because obviously you cant understand what I am saying at all which makes me feel real sorry for you.

    and since I have everyone’s attention. Thanks for the great pic of me holding up a beer. I really do enjoy that photo :D and if anyone is interested in a proper chess game, pls download “chess with friends”and challenge me to a game. I accept all friend request on facebook so if you have trouble looking for me in the game, just add me on facebook. Its so hard to get a proper game nowadays.

    May the Beer be with you
    Norman :D

      i thought that made lots of sense and was well written. and you are right, the two-faced xenophobia here is getting out of hand and here, it’s been fueled by the media especially by this idiot site. How is that positive and how will that move us forward? We are a weird bunch, us Singaporeans. We hate ourselves, other people and each other. and all the trolls here think they have an “alternative media” to follow the news on, please, read between the lines. It’s shit stirring.

      now, let the shit slinging begin…

    • after reading your super long and boring post i still dun get where the funny part or comedy. i feel really sorry for you because you still cant show people the funny part after all this wall of text. btw not everyone can be the JOKER, are u trying to act like one? dun give us the “why so serious” face ok.

    • dumber or dumber said

      if your dad was in that taxi at that time, would you have hold your glass of beer high, laugh and say, “at least you went with a bang! Cheers~” ?

      indeed accidents happen, but many could be avoided. At 4am, it doesnt mean that traffic laws are no longer needed to be abided. that frigging ferrari was obviously speeding.. even braking at that point in time, he still wouldnt be able to stop. driving a ferrari doesnt give you the power to legally break laws or make you above the law either. u want to test the top speed of your new ferrari do it on the autobahns in Germany or Daytona, US where there is no limit to speed limit. not bugis street.

      • chrisnana said

        LOL………all the people who responded srsly couldn’t get what norman is “laughing” about… he’s not even fcking LAUGHING about the whole incident and all you retards have no inkling of READING BTW THE LINES. go live your real life and stop caring about what people post on their OWN PERSONAL FACEBOOK ACCOUNT. it’s not even like he’s fcking saying anything condescending bout the whole thing..geez.

      • Condolences.... said

        To Chrisnana above, there is no such thing as posting in his OWN PERSONAL FACEBOOK ACCOUNT if the post can be read by everyone else publicly. Also do not assume everyone will read BETWEEN THE LINES, he made a simple comment and we read it simply, period. I bet 99% of human beings will find his comments inappropriate and cold blooded, so there is no point finding excuses for him. Please think twice before posting in YOUR OWN FACEBOOK ACCOUNT when everyone can read them.

      • Chrisnana said

        yo dude, to address your points: 1) An account is private in all its definitions and meanings and whatever he post is his business. Hence, any posts he has put up there is subjected to viewing by his friends and that implies that not every fucking “public” person can view it per se. It is only the people who are his friends who view his posts as derogatory and basically have no rights (and no life) to let everyone else whom this Norman guy isn’t friends with i.e his posts are private. Thus, you are just making a false statement that it is a public expression of his own opinions. 2) Sorry, so the assumption that everyone is so dim-witted that they can’t fucking read btw the lines of such a simple statement? You “bet” here, “assume” there, and claim i’m making excuses for him. There is nothing wrong with him stating his opinions and seriously why give a shit? So if he says something like that (and obviously he doesn’t mean it in the literal sense) means he is cold-blooded and doesn’t give a fuck about people dying? Appropriateness is subjective and honestly, the fact that this bullshit wordpress even try to blow something as minor as this, is ridiculous and can be considered as impediment on privacy. This whole “drama” created by this wordpress is just so unique to Singapore; so full of kaypoh, nosy people who don’t even see the subtle things in life. Sad.

      • Condolences.... said

        Chrisnana, your style of replying gives you away, you are just Norman Then using a different nick. If you are not, why are you defending him so much where no one else in this post is barely saying he is right? Are you agreeing to what he had posted or just another “reading between THE LINES” kind of lame excuse? Made yourselves clear as I am just as blur when I read your reply as Norman post his long reply, same style…
        Oh btw, try stripping yourselves naked in busy orchard road in mid day BUT infront of your friends expecting just them to see you, and see if the police will not take you away… Is this also the correct definition of your”private”? Get a life and grow up…. You sounded like everyone owes you a living.
        Oh, btw, I did not ask you to read this post too, so if you read and reply, this post is PRIVATE FOR MY FRIENDS ONLY so is not meant for PUBLIC reading…
        OMG…I sounded like weirdo already….

      • Chrisnana said

        oh so now you wish to rebut me with some argument that does not display your intellect? And for all you retards out there, if you are thinking i’m Norman just cause i’m defending him, what kind of logic is that? So in the Singaporean society where one wishes to post an opinion that is the converse, he is deemed to be the conspirator? So if i speak proper English, i’m Norman? Obviously you don’t have the logic of an adult. With regards to your lame ass analogy of stripping down in Orchard road, save yourself the embarrassment please. The act of doing that isn’t the same as posting on a website that 1)yes it is accessible to the public but 2)it is only accessible to his friends, which qualifies it as public. You asking me to grow up? The tone of yours ain’t that much of a grown-up eh? Along with all the people commenting about his upbringing etc. To your lame ass rebuttal of 2nd last line, this unfortunately is a public website since the creators of this website want their content to be available to everyone, rendering it public, so obviously, i can read your comment and i can reply it. Please talk with some sense and intellect cause it really shows that you, who doesn’t like Norman’s opinions and find them snide and offensive, ain’t that good yourself. So, go fuck yourself, kiddo.

      • geez said

        chrisnana you are giving yourself away from the way you typed.

      • Hsien Liao La said

        Chrisnana is th only person who defended Norman Cuntface Then throughout this entire ‘drama’. did he suck your c*ck or lick your p*ssy so satisfying that you have to defend him?

      • Condolences.... said

        Your reply is obviously becoming more nonsensical so there is no way I will want to continue discussing this any further as clearer you do not know what you are writing about and all I can see are all the 4 letter words from you,and as said by many one here, you are obviously Norman, defend all you want but it is not going to change the perception we have of you and Norman being the same person. I am a father of 2 grown up children, so I am sympathy of the family of the taxi driver. If there is any conscious left of you, just step up here and show your sympathy too instead of defending the one laughing at the video. His explanation of between the lines is irrelevant as nothing can explain the simple one-liner he says about laughing. In fact, there is nothing between the lines we can read from his original statement as it is just one line.
        This will be my last post here, you can reply saying whatever you like but I will not pick up any argument with you further as you clearer are not grown up and lost all your conscious. If you think you have won, so be it, it is fine for me. Others will know who is on the right side. God bless you and your family…

      • Chrisnana said

        what a joke, from someone sounding like a secondary school kid to a father with 2 kids? Just when you cannot use your brain to rebut, you wish to come up with a blank slate and push your point without any intellectual thinking. I’m just an eighteen year old who feels that people like you, just do not get the subtle things in life and attack anyone who you feel that is making a remark which appears to you as condescending when you did not have any intellectual capability to understand the full meaning of the statement. And it’s people like you who are making our society worse and cold. It’s not whether who won or not, it’s the point that you are trying to insult me. Just because i’m not siding with most of you retards down here in the comment section means that i am Norman? I don’t even fucking know the guy. Go search my FB (Chris Chia), retard. Oh and by the way, get some English lessons. It’s not “i’m sympathy with of the family..”, it’s “i’m sympathetic”. So much for being a father.

Yes his death sucks. Yes its tragic. But also yes he is human and lets face it, humans make mistakes.
    Finally, before watching the video, I was told by friends who has had prior viewing of the so named accident, that this was a very graphic video. In my head I was like….how bad can it be? BAM! Woahhhhhhhhhhhhhh the hell? What in the world was………replay. No matter how prepared I was to watch that, I was still taken aback viewing it for the first time.

    So at this point some of you are already itching to come at me from every angle with insults and criticisms of all sorts. I urge you to take a step back and look at ourselves before we venture any further into this discussion.

    NOW, HOW MANY OF US REPLAYED THE VIDEO AFTER VIEWING IT THE FIRST TIME? Answer: ALL OF US. More than one time? No some of us has viewed it more than ten times.
    I now challenge u to ask yourself, Why? why watch it so many times? If the images were so graphic and so horrific that it makes you so sympathetically towards the family, then why watch it again? What do you want to further horrify yourself? Is the conversation between the two people in the video very interesting? Did you want to get the license plate of the car at the corner? In whatever way you choose to look at it. There is no good reason for replaying the video. Because deep down inside, as much as everyone(myself included) hates to admit, we do realise that there was some entertainment value to the video. WOAH WOAH WOAH, what is this guy saying? He enjoyed watching that? Now before you jump at me with accusations. Search deep inside your soul. Why did you replay the video if not for the entertainment value? Same reason u pay money to watch SAW and same reason we watch action movies. I know they are made up events but in reality , if it doesn’t happen to us, or anyone we know, we perceive it as fiction. How many deaths all over the world people experiencing everyday that are 10 times more tragic that this? Starvation, murder or suicide. Arent these more horrific than a car accident? And don’t people die from car accidents everyday? Why then do we take up arms and want to blame everything and everyone involved in this accident? I believe it was pent up hatred singaporeans have for foreigners all this while just that we never got to express it. Now that we have the avenue to unleash that pent up anger, everyone seems to want to jump on the bandwagon and drive all the PRC people outta country. I mean, seriously? Why? these people contribute to our society just as much as you do. Some of them do the jobs that no Singaporean would ever wanna do. So why chase them out? They are humans just like us. Is there a need to discriminate them?
    Now Norman. YOU AH. YOU WAIT TILL YOUR FAMILY KENA CAR ACCIDENT SEE WHETHER YOU LAUGH OR NOT. Isn’t that what we all are thinking now. But in fact my family did face a very bad car accident. Almost identical to this case. Only difference is that no one died. Now was I laughing when I found out that my entire family could have died one night and I would have been all alone in this world? Nope. But then at some point I too found the comedy in the situation. Had they been a second later. Whole family would have been dead. Its funny how seconds can mean the very different between life and death. It helps you take life less seriously. If you can enjoy every second, you can enjoy every hour, every day.
    HAH I SEE YOU ON THE ROAD I BANG YOU. YOUR FACE KENA SMASH SEE WHETHER U LAUGHING OR NOT WHEN YOU DIE. I assure you my friend. If I was in heaven staring down at my mangled body I would give God two thumbs up and a pat on the back saying “nice job. Haha poetic justice.” So answer is yes. I would eventually still laugh.
    YOU ARE A SADISTIC MOFO. Mmmm no. well basic level sadism I guess yes. Just like the rest of us. Do I go around crashing into people and enjoy watching them die? No. do I want to do that? Nope. Have I played games that encourage that kind of behaviour? Yes :P (those of us that play GTA don’t shy away now).
    YOU HAVE NO SYMPATHY FOR THE DEAD YOU INSENSITIVE PRICK. Its funny how these same people saying these things are also the ones cursing my family( who are completely innocent) to die and also cursing the PRC who according to some of them “deserve to die”. Now those kids out there saying these things. Arent you far worse than I am? Havent you considered that this PRC guy has a family too? A mum a dad, siblings whatever, who would also be grieving over the lost of their loved one? So how sensitive are your comments towards those people? AND YOU GOT THE CHEEK TO CALL ME INSENSITIVE. I NEVER MADE FUN, CURSED, OR INSULTED THE DEAD PEOPLE. And how about the PRC people in Singapore who are still alive and living here? You curse the PRC people like their country of origin has anything to do with their behaviour? Whatever one chooses to do in this life is ultimately his choice. So are your “”DEATH CURSE TO ALL PRC IN SINGAPORE” sensitive to those who are alive? What makes you think all PRC drivers are horrible drivers? By saying such moronic things like that, you are actually no better than the people you are cursing.

    Now after saying all this. After I’ve insulted myself and provided myself with the counter argument, I assure those people that have understood my point of view that there will still be haters out there that would drop really idiotic really stupid comments that shows that either they didn’t understand the content of this note or that they just want to find something to hate.
    If you are reading this are you are thinking to yourself. I don’t agree with this guy. I say to you. Fair enough. I cant make everyone see things the way I do, nor do I say that my way is the right way. If you have your opinion, fine, so be it. Just don’t try and force it upon me or anyone else for that matter. For those of you who agree with me, well… haha whats wrong with you? You are as messed up as I am

    And finally for those of you who are just going to spam flame this note. Well theres really nothing to say to you because obviously you cant understand what I am saying at all which makes me feel real sorry for you.

    and since I have everyone’s attention. Thanks for the great pic of me holding up a beer. I really do enjoy that photo :D and if anyone is interested in a proper chess game, pls download “chess with friends”and challenge me to a game. I accept all friend request on facebook so if you have trouble looking for me in the game, just add me on facebook. Its so hard to get a proper game nowadays.

    May the Beer be with you
    Norman :D

    Who the heck is he?

    No seriously… who the heck is he?

  35. Macoy Li said

    Norman really needs to grow up. Maybe he has taken too much beer and has brain damage.

  36. Joseph Goh said

    I think your EQ is way below zero to have such a comment.. I doesnt wish to curse you here but what if it is your mum/wife/son in e cab and someone is still lauging there?.. You have a full-fledge brain to think proper next time you post a comment.. So please..

    • “”Now Norman. YOU AH. YOU WAIT TILL YOUR FAMILY KENA CAR ACCIDENT SEE WHETHER YOU LAUGH OR NOT. Isn’t that what we all are thinking now. But in fact my family did face a very bad car accident.

      as said in my above post. i already addressed this situation.

      told you people will still comment about this. just knew it

  37. zuzu said

    This norman then guy… well known to sleep around with lots of girls. What a shame to the society n his parents.

    • Chin said

      Sleep around with lots of girls? Why the heck would girls sleep with a prick like that? Wait, I just answered my own question, didn’t I?

      • wilsonpoh said

        he’s an insensitive prick and thats the last thing girls would want in a guy. dun think any girls in the right mind will date him, much less sleep with him.

  38. EG said

    To that try to be smart alex Norman, not all people replay the video to find the entertaining value in it…people like me re-watch it several times to try to understand the situation then, e.g. for sure it was the Ferrari driver fault as the traffic light in his direction has turned red for more than 5 seconds; the man who crossed the road illegally would have been killed by the reckless Ferrari driver if he were to wait for green man to cross; the motorcyclist on the left would have been killed if he were to go straight; the taxi which recorded the video will be the one to get hit if it moved at the same speed as the ill fated one on the right. So don’t assume others are trying to entertain themselves by watching the videos over and over again. Regardless what you explained in order to make you appear as if you are more creative in your thinking, you still fail miserably as a human being

    • P Koh said

      A leopard cannot change its spots. No amount of cleansing or explanation could ever erase the mindset of someone who is inhumane and who lacks respect both for the deceased persons or those who are still suffering from this sad incident.

    • seng said

      To us human we watch the video to see and understand what really happen but no matter who (expect u Norman Then) when watch the very first time sure will not laugh inside the heart .we will in fact got shock and this very first reaction actually reflect the actual feeling inside our heart how shock we are and not laughing at it. I do not see any thing that can make us laugh .be more mature

  39. Tim said

    Another idiot like the speeding PRC….all deserved to die. Hope it happens to him one day and let him laught at himself in HELL!!.

  40. PRC really put a shame on everywhere said

    wow, is this the way how his parents do their upbring on him? dude, what you do or comments does reflects on your family.

  41. the wise observer said

    attention seeker. Your 15 minutes of fame ended when you got dumped from Idol. now go back under bridge you troll.

  42. Brendan Tang said

    whether if he meant what he said in a good or bad way… he should had known better to choose careful words to touch on such a sensitive issue. THEN AGAIN WHY THE LONG EXPLAINATION AND REMOVING THE POST SINCE HE”S NOT AFRIAD OF WHAT HE’s SAYING? … DUH?!

  43. Norman Who said

    Norman who? Why does TT even bother with this?

  44. KS said

    How did your family and friends stand you for so long? No sympathy is ok but laughing at other expenses?

    Please learn to shut up and go back to doing what others said you do best – prowling for girls to get laid.

  45. Angel said

    Norman Then by saying what you did, I can predict yr future already. So sad to hv people like you! What a waste of life!

  46. chang sim said

    See some resemblance between him and the ferrari prc driver. Both love to f**k around, both can’t keep their pants on. both deserve to die.

  47. Jerry said

    His reputation already so bad before this (mostly got to do with girls) now even worse. How would the victims families react if they see this.

  48. thomaseddy said

    I don’t think its nice to question his parents upbringing on him. Maybe they are just unlucky to have such an insensitive, arrogant son. and 1 more thing he pay girls to sleep with him one isit? his buang face like that still can get girls in bed ah?

  49. Maverick17 said

    his singing is as bad as the PRC’s guy driving. i wonder why he was laughing.

  50. Matthew said

    This guy is classical walking brain dead man.

  51. HantuSing said

    Why can’t you just say, sorry, I had a couple of beer, I wasn’t thinking right when I said that, I am sorry. Rather than I was sober when I wrote that reaction, and the more I write as of now, the murkier it becomes. Hey Norman, you’re flushing your brain through your fingers, and we all can see how shallow it is.

    • P Koh said

      He is an attention seeker. Just leave him alone instead of wasting our time on scum-bag like him who has no concience or respect for the feelings of fellow humans.

  52. Justice said

    This young man is too full of himself to see what he did wrong. If he got a gf, she must be stupid and embarrassed to have fall for someone like him who is of a bad rep and character.

  53. Creative Spirit said

    If you try to speak outside this physical time, space dimension, people will always misunderstood you, no matter how much you try to correct…. becos you are not in the same dimension!

  54. bibu said

    his inner matches his outer ;p

  55. J said

    Not everyone has an evil and sick sense of humor like you, norman.

  56. ducati said

    Someone please lock this sadist up before he go around making insensitive remarks on others.

  57. chrisnana said

    LOL….all these “morally great” people coming to “defend” the incident when some random guy post a SEEMINGLY snide remark on his personal fb account? Seriously? Wtf is so sick and evil when it’s so fcking clear that he is not “laughing” at the incident, but rather the irony in it? Geez….do you really have so little mental capacity to read btw the lines? And it is not like he is mocking anyone who died in this incident? And to be honest, do you really have to insult him just because you, in your rather ridiculously “kaypohish” mindset, THINK that he is seriously being humorous about it? God…Singaporeans take life too seriously that they cannot even notice the subtle differences in life.

  58. G said

    Lunatic alert! Hide yo kids hide yo wife!

  59. Eth said

    Norman Then is already a dickhead even before this saga, now he just made himself look like a fool. Serve him right!

  60. Bill said

    His hobby is sleeping with girls right?

  61. bb said

  62. Small Norman said

    Norman obviously has a tiny penis.

  63. Dulan said

    This gigolo deleted that infamous status of his.

  64. Fumbledore said

    He look like a serial rapist.

  65. R said

    F off with your lame attempt at irony! Nobody gives a sh*t

  66. uqwby 40q74b said
