Outcry over Feng Tianwei throwing flowers at cheering PRC fans after her win at London Olympics
Posted by temasektimes on August 2, 2012
A massive outcry has erupted in cyberspace over China-born Feng Tianwei throwing flowers at PRC fans cheering for her after her victory over Japan’s Kasumi Ishikawa
Feng Tianwei won the game 4-0 in the women’s singles table tennis match to clinch the bronze on Wednesday.
Throughout the match, PRC fans waving the China flag could be seen on screen screaming their support for her. The Heilongjiang native only ‘became’ a Singaporean ‘citizen’ in 2007.
Though she is now a ‘Singaporean’, it is pretty obvious that Feng is still a PRC at heart, judging from her reaction which left the Singaporean fans stunned
Some responses from Hardwarezone forumers:
“Did i see wrongly?? Feng tian wei followed ding ning and li xiao xia throwing flowers to the CHINA audiences??” – Mystic321
“China just plus one additional bronze medal.” – haoren
“China is where the heart belong to!!” – crazyliao
“It is sad that sports, supposedly to unite a country has divided Singapore so much.” – Carnage
Despite the propaganda spewed forth daily by the state media to ‘celebrate’ Feng’s medal, it appears that only PAP leaders and their faithful servants are rejoicing over her victory, a misplaced ‘joy’ which is hardly shared by the rest of the nation.
