JC student Reuben Wang who ‘f**ked’ DPM Teo Chee Hean apologizes to him in person at MHA
Posted by temasektimes on June 8, 2012
The student from St Andrew’s Junior College (SAJC) had earlier blogged about his unpleasant experience with DPM Teo during the recently held Pre-University seminar, criticizing him for dodging questions posed by students and counter-asking them for solutions instead:
“The participants made it extremely clear they were dissatisfied with DPM Teo- and when we asked about our concerns which we do not know what can be done to solved, he will give the fucking ridiculous reply “What do you think (can be done)?”.
His blog post polarized public opinion in Singapore with many netizens applauding him for daring the speak the truth while the mainstream media condemned his rant, smearing him as a ‘keyboard thug’.
The student now said he ‘regretted’ using ‘strong’ language on DPM Teo in a moment of fury as he thought his questions were not being answered. His blog post has since been deleted.
It is not known if pressure has been exerted on SAJC or Reuben Wang to make the apology in order to save the ‘face’ of DPM Teo. The Singapore government controls all the education institutions in Singapore including the universities and the JC student now faces a bleak future ahead of him for speaking his mind.
