Posted by temasektimes on August 13, 2012
The National University of Singapore Office of Student Affairs (OSA) is currently investigating a video depicting NUS students hurling profanities and cracking racist jokes on school campus which has gone viral in cyberspace.
In a comment posted on the Facebooks of major socio-political sites, NUS OSA said it is looking into the video and it does not condone such offensive comments or behavior:
According to tip-offs we received from NUS students, the video was taken on 10 August at the Multi-purpose Hall of Kent Ridge Hall to celebrate the end of NUS Rag day.
Justin Wee, the student seen making the obscene remarks and gestures in the video is NOT from NUS, but a Singapore Institute of Management (SIM) student invited as a dancer for the NUS Rag flag day.
However, the other students seen around him are from NUS. The person who filmed the video was reportedly a third year student from NUS Science.
The shocking video who has drawn more than 20,000 views so far on Youtube has drawn the ire of netizens, many of whom condemn the students for their obnoxious comments and behavior which are unfitting of their status as undergraduates.
