Pinoy ‘FT’ told to delete Facebook account by company after making jibe at Singaporean
Posted by temasektimes on June 26, 2012
Pinoy ‘FT’ Rosario Garcia Tenorio was told by her company to delete her Facebook account after an irate netizen called up to lodge a complaint against her for making derogatory remarks about a native Singaporean working as a Crew Leader at McDonald’s.
Rosario had earlier posted a sarcastic comment on the Facebook page of McDonald’s mocking at a Singaporean Ling Ling:
“She should study more so that she wouldn’t end up in MacDonald serving me fries.”
Her insensitive comment sparked a massive outcry among netizens with many condemning her for it.
Despite the furore, Rosario remained unrepentant and posted later on her Facebook:
“The only thing I said was to advise people to study harder if not they might end up flipping burgers.”
This is not the first time that pinoys have hurled insults at Singaporeans online. A few weeks ago, a group of pinoys jeered at Singaporeans struggling to find a job on Facebook.
One pinoy Marie Hilario asked Singaporeans to ‘f**k off’ as they cannot do without them:
“Without Filipinos in Singapore, you are NOTHING!”
Another pinoy Mickey Bebe boasted that Filipinos made up about 25 percent of almost all the companies in Singapore:
“if you hate us…then ask your government not to hired filipinos here… and im sure u can’t do without us… coz almost of the company half or 1/4 of their employee was PINOY’s…”
In other countries, foreigners are expected to integrate into local society, but it seems to be the other way round in Singapore with PAP leaders exhorting Singaporeans constantly to make the newcomers feel accepted, welcomed and happy in Singapore.
